Overview

The PartnerWorld Profiling System (PPS) is the online system that helps you maintain and support your IBM® PartnerWorld® relationships. The system lets you view and update your PartnerWorld profile, including Worldwide enterprise, Country enterprise(s), Location(s) and Employee(s). PPS is also the central area to access information on agreements, benefits and relationships with IBM.

Changes you make in PPS will be fed to other IBM PartnerWorld applications, such as Business Partner Connections and the Global Partner Portal. PPS is the single source reflecting your relationships and entitlements with IBM, and is used by other IBM Business Partner applications to validate your company's authorization.

 

As you proceed through this guide, you will learn how to create, view and edit your company's Worldwide and Country enterprises, locations and employees profiles, depending on your role. It can be referenced by a variety of key stakeholders at your company including, the Primary Relationship Contact (PRC), Authorized Profile Administrator (APA) and other individual employees.
