What we offer

Innovation Workshops and IBM Design Thinking
Share ideas and co-create value.

In our Design Studio we utilize IBM Design Thinking as a method to co-create value with you. To foster innovative ideas, we run our workshops as interactive sessions in small groups, based on an open discussion about business pain points, drivers, and possible solutions.

Solution and technology briefings tailored to your specific needs.

We change the conversation: In our briefings you get the opportunity to engage with experts and thought leaders from the German Lab. We deliver highly customized, fully facilitated briefings, and we offer to use elements of IBM Design Thinking by leveraging the Boeblingen Design Studio.

Demos and Showcases
Experience IBM solutions live - across IT systems and software.

Seeing is believing – We show the innovation that continuously comes with new products and solution offerings in a tangible way. We even make our hardware transparent – with the latest IBM Z technology glass model in front of our center.

Proofs of Concept
Demonstrate the feasibility of our solutions in your IT environment.

During a Proof of Concept (PoC) study we assist you in your exploration of different IT options and the customization and integration of IBM Systems solutions. We discuss and analyze various solution options, assess and validate a planned strategy and develop an architecture roadmap and plan.

Support for Business Partners and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs)
Leverage our expertise to expand your business.

As an IBM Business Partner, you have access to our portfolio of technical enablement workshops, briefings, demos, and technical support offerings. Contact us to identify the applicable offering for you and your clients.
If you are an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) we can support you in enabling your application to run on z/OS, Linux on IBM Z, and on IBM LinuxONE. With remote access capabilities and on site workshops at the Client Center we can help you to exploit the IBM Z capabilities and functions to meet your clients' needs. The IBM LinuxONE Community Cloud for ISVs in Europe (US) provides application vendors access to IBM LinuxONE resources to port and test new applications on the IBM Z platform.
