Take a Proactive Approach to Managing your Support Plans and Issues - with help from AVP (the Accelerated Value program)
IBM Subscription and Support provides world-class software support via award-winning tools and support personnel. AVP – aka the Accelerated Value Program - added to your S&S contract, provides comprehensive maintenance and support guidance and assistance for issues that occur across all phases of the software life-cycle .
With AVP, you can get assistance with tasks like file fixing, code reviews, and upgrade tasks, as well as advanced support activities like defining your support plan, doing support readiness reviews, and assistance managing issue resolution activities.
Assigned senior IBM Support experts will provide you with personalized, proactive, and prioritized support management and issue assistance. Depending on the type and level of help you need, you'll have an AVL (Accelerated Value Leader) or AVS (Accelerated Value Specialist) who knows your software infrastructure and understand your business needs. When issues arise, your AVP expert will help you get back on track quickly, and if needed, can also help with the planning, execution, and management of a personalized Support strategy that focuses on issue prevention.
AVP also helps improve the availability of both mission-critical applications and system deployment times, which in turn, helps optimize how in-house support teams work.
With AVP, your assigned AVL or AVS:
AVP also provides other benefits, like priority call handling, access to technical skills-sharing events, and no-cost Certification Vouchers (where applicable – talk to your AVP Seller for details)
