IBM Collaboration Solutions Catalog closing date announced
Tags :GSD solutions catalog IBM
The IBM Collaboration Solutions Catalog has an official end date of December 15, 2017. This means you need to plan now to move your offerings to the Global Solutions Directory.
We want to thank you for allowing us to showcase your business solutions related to the IBM Collaboration Services portfolio!! It has been our honor to have hosted your entries in our IBM Collaboration Solutions Catalog for the past 7 years. We wanted to make you aware that all IBM Business Partner entries in the IBM Collaboration Solutions Catalog will be archived on December 15, 2017 and to communicate the strategic direction for continuing to showcase your solutions.
To ensure that your solutions continue to be highlighted in the best possible way, our strategic direction forward is to host all entries in the IBM PartnerWorld Global Services Directory (GSD). This will provide one stop shopping for all of IBM's customers and partners when looking for a solution. The Global Solutions Directory is the IBM repository of IBM Business Partner offering information. Business Partners use the directory to manage their solution offering information. The information that is submitted in the GSD feeds to a host of other ibm.com web sites
You can see the Global Solutions Catalog right here. Keep in mind it is massive and includes more than just things like the plug-ins I had inside the Collaboration Solutions Catalog.
There is an alternate place as well to list some solutons, which does drive me a bit crazy. I think one place with well defined filters is the best option so everyone can find you. Instead of us trying to keep up with multiple entries
Alternatively, you can apply to have your solutions highlighted in the IBM PartnerWorld Business Partner Application Showcase and apply for the "Ready for IBM Social Business" designation to differentiate your solution from others.
