Qualify incoming calls: Determine if the request is for a new or existing case. Assign a priority to a new case (priority one through priority four). For existing cases, obtain case information. II. Characterize the problem and environment: Gather information about the case and determine if the Program causes the problem. Completely define and describe the problem. Identify ways to understand the problems behavior. Document the characterization information. Analyze problem symptom(s), attempt to find root cause when appropriate and describe the result of such attempts. Determine if the problem is a known Program problem by accessing IBM online support resources. III. If it is determined to be a Program problem, contact IBM technical support. For new cases, open a case and select a priority. For existing cases, state the case number. Provide the case information you have gathered to the support engineer. Level 2 Support means the service provided to analyze or repeat the error, or to determine that the error is not repeatable. This service also includes in-depth technical analysis. 57 © 2011 IBM Corporation

  59. 59. ASL Launch and Landing Revenue Credit - Revenue Recognition and Commissions Policy IBM sellers receive commissionable credit for revenue that is generated by business partners who bundle IBM software with their solutions and sell these solutions to their end user clients under the terms of ASL contracts. SWG business partner sales teams, SWG direct sales teams, and client teams receive appropriate credit for their contributions both in selling to our partners and in selling with our partners to their end user clients. Launch commission credit may flow automatically through FMS to rep commission payment and retires quota. In some cases, Reps are required to complete a manual claim request form and have their First Line Manager (FLM) confirm their involvement and approve the claim. The FLM will send the completed claim form and their approval to the Channel Manager covering the Launch location of the ASL Partner ASL landing occurs when the ISV sells their application, as well as restricted use of IBM SW products integrated with their application, to an end user customer. The end customer is the ASL landing account. All reps given CREV quota for selling this IBM middleware and responsible for the end customer will be compensated. All SWG reps and client reps and managers are eligible for ASL landing credit. Executives who are paid on financial revenue only are excluded from the program. ASL Landing commission payments are processed on a quarterly basis. ASL landing commission credit is issued for transactional revenue only and retires quota.59 © 2011 IBM Corporation

Can I serve the service up through my portal? ...etc.Many different questions to what you receive when the customer is buildingtheir own environment – why?
