IBM cloud solution providers that embed technology should apply
If you are an Independent Software Vendor, Managed Service Provider or Cloud Solution Provider you have the opportunity to extend your brand, validate your technology and gain global exposure with the Ready for Cloud mark.
What’s in it for you?
You’ve done the work and put in the hours to make your solution run on IBM Cloud. Partners like SendGrid, Silverstring, and ne Digital each have their own way of leveraging IBM Cloud technology, and they all have earned the mark. Why not capitalize on your efforts and get the Ready for Cloud mark? You can have a mark on every solution that is validated.
Applying for the Ready for Cloud mark
- Log in to ibm.com/partnerworld (you can join at the same link)
- Type in “Ready for Cloud” in the top right search bar
- Scroll to and click on “Ready for IBM Cloud”
- On the Ready for Cloud page, scroll down to “Nominate your cloud-based solution”
- Create your listing in the Global Solution Directory
- Nominate your solution for review and acceptance
What happens next?
Your solution will be reviewed by an IBM Cloud Architect to validate the technical compatibility with IBM technologies. They will also review your documentation and may request a demo showing the solution with IBM Cloud technologies.
Once approved, you’ll receive an email with a link to accept the supplemental agreement for use of the mark. Then you can download your licensed mark for use. We encourage you to place the mark on your website where you have the solution, on solution data sheets and on signage where your solution is represented.
If you have any questions, please contact me!
