IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator is ready to help

Selecting IBM Cloud means more than just a technology partnership. IBM is committed to the success of every Solution Provider integrating our Cloud, Watson, Analytics, and other critical technology components. From helping to nurture newer cloud-based offerings, to speeding the growth of more mature offerings, to driving customer acquisitions, we go beyond the technology to team with our partners so that we both succeed.

We agree with a recent IDC channel report that noted, “By 2020, partner IP will define partner business models—it will be the dominant driver of most partners’ revenue and profitability.” That’s why my team has custom-tailored the IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program to help ISVs, MSPs, and other companies developing their own IP fully leverage the power, depth, and experience of IBM to speed time to market and reduce time to revenue.

An ongoing partner engagement program

The IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program enables partners to fully leverage the scope and scale of IBM and its ecosystem. It is a unique, high-touch engagement program that gives partners priority access to IBM Cloud sales, marketing, technical, and other subject matter experts, as well as exclusive sales tools and resources.

The IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program is custom-tailored for companies leveraging their own IP to do any of the following:

  • Launch new cloud-based offerings

  • Integrate cloud into existing products

  • Provide a core set of cloud managed services

Upon completion of the workshop, partners then gain access to the program’s extensive pool of content, including solutions webinars, industry podcasts, coaching calls, training vouchers, collateral, customer acquisition programs, and more, all accessible live or on-demand via the Incubator Community Portal.

How will quantum impact the biotech industry?

5 min read - The physics of atoms and the technology behind treating disease might sound like disparate fields. However, in the past few decades, advances in artificial intelligence, sensing, simulation and more have driven enormous impacts within the biotech industry. Quantum computing provides an opportunity to extend these advancements with computational speedups and/or accuracy in each of those areas. Now is the time for enterprises, commercial organizations and research institutions to begin exploring how to use quantum to solve problems in their respective domains. As a Partner in IBM’s Quantum practice, I've had the pleasure of working…

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
