  • This chart is the familiar MidMarket Application Framework. This chart shows how there are many solutions that surround the main business solutions that our customers are interested in and the various ways we can partner to deliver cloud solutions to out clients.
  • So how do you get started with cloud computing? At IBM we believe that to best leverage cloud computing as a viable delivery model is to lay out a clear path that is grounded in integrating cloud with your overall IT delivery strategy. You can build and deliver cloud services, or you can acquire and deliver cloud services, but both should appropriately start with your planning stage where you align the cloud-based services with your overall strategic direction, you’ve analyzed which workloads are appropriate for cloud delivery, and have at least a preliminary business case to support an implementation. The best way to start a cloud adoption is with a pilot.
  • All cloud assets and offerings for IBM Business Partners will be available through the PartnerWorld Cloud portal at www.ibm.com/partnerworld/cloud Key call to action for business partners building private cloud is to get skilled up on Starter Kit for Cloud. The IBM Cloud Specialty covers not only Cloud Builders, but Infrastructure Providers, Services Solutions Providers, Application Providers, & Technology Providers Close with importance of building cloud pipeline, taking advantage of the portfolio and partner enablement assets and tools.

    • Depending on their existing and target business model(s), IBM Partners typically choose to play one or more roles in Cloud among those 5 : [1] Cloud Builder , [2] Cloud Infrastructure Provider , [3] Cloud Application Provider , [4] Cloud Services Solution Provider , [5] Cloud Technology Provider .
    • These roles have given birth to the IBM Cloud Computing Specialty which a Cloud Partner can get access to by demonstrating that they have the required skills [certifications], references and revenue with IBM.
    • Cloud Builders can typically be found among traditional Infrastructure Integrators/Resellers and CSI. Many of them have also developed an MSP [Managed Service Provider] business and may also become Cloud Infrastructure Providers .
    • In 2012, the vast majority of Distributors will deploy 2 activities in the Cloud : [1] Valued Added Distributor of Cloud Technologies for Cloud Builders, [2] Distributor or Aggregator of Cloud Services for Cloud Services Solution Providers Resellers.
    • All SmartCloud Foundation technologies [ow SmartCloud Provisioning...], most SmartCloud Services [ow SmartCloud Enteprise...] and Some SmartCloud Solutions [ow SmartCloud For Social Business] are Business Partners "Ready".
    • Partnering is key for Cloud success, both for IBM Business Partners and for IBM, both for Private and for Public Cloud opportunities, both for big projects wins and for Mid Market penetration.
  • Next Steps for IBM Sellers
    • Query customers and prospects about other companies they already work with… and engage relevant Cloud Partner(s) accordingly…
    • … through your local BPO Cloud Channel Leader if you are unsure about choosing the right Partner or Partnership model…
