IBM Business Partner Certification

IBM announced a worldwide initiative to train and certify individuals in developing and selling e-business solutions. The initiative, which includes a new curriculum, certification program and satellite/Web-based learning alternatives, will be available through IBM PartnerWorld -- a marketing and enablement program designed to create new revenue opportunities for IBM Business Partners.

"When we launched PartnerWorld, we promised to enhance our Business Partners’ ability to deliver true value to customers using IBM technology, software, services and solutions," says Buell Duncan, General Manager, IBM Global Business Partners. "Today’s enhancements are designed to deliver the skills, confidence and credentials that individuals and Business Partners need to transform their customers’ businesses into e-businesses."

The new offerings support the four tracks around which PartnerWorld was designed -- personal systems, systems and services, software and developers.
