As the editor of IBM Systems Magazine, I understand the value of education. The Armonk, N.Y.-based company does too. To improve the delivery of training to IBM clients, the company recently tapped five global training partners (GTPs) to improve the reach of training to clients worldwide-Arrow Electronics, Avnet, Global Knowledge, Ingram Micro and LearnQuest.
To educate our readers, IBM clients whose companies deploy System z and Power Systems servers, the magazine produced a supplement, or mini-magazine, explaining the change. You can view our special report on global training here. For one of the articles, a writer sat down with IBM’s Bob McDonald, vice president and executive sponsor of the IBM Global Skills Initiative, to learn more about the rationale behind the decision.
We extended an opportunity to the GTPs to allow them to tell their companies’ stories. Three of the five-LearnQuest (page 8), Arrow (page 12) and Ingram Micro (page 16)-took advantage of the opportunity. Each has four pages in the supplement to talk about their company and what differentiates it from other training providers.
Take a minute to read through the information in the IBM Systems Magazinespecial report on global training. I think you’ll find it worth your while.
