WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners Expands

WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners Expands

(April 4, 2003) - On April 10th at developerWorks Live in New Orleans, IBM will announce the expansion of the WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners program to include support for the development of business processes. This announcement is targeted toward Systems Integrators (SIs) and Solution Providers (SPs) interested in modeling, building and deploying business processes through WebSphere Business Integration.

In addition, IBM is announcing a new validation program, Ready for IBM WebSphere Business Integration Software. Business Partners authenticating their solutions through WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners will receive the Ready for IBM WebSphere Business Integration Software mark to identify their certified solutions.

This announcement follows the February 18th launch of the WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners initiative at PartnerWorld in New Orleans, which was targeted toward ISVs.

WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners' mission is to rapidly grow the number of IBM Business Partners enabled on and with the WebSphere platform. Through this initiative, IBM will provide IBM Business Partners with the resources and technical expertise to help enable their solutions and services.

  • For SIs and SPs, WebSphere can help them to model client business processes and then take that model to deploy an end-to-end business process.

  • For ISVs, IBM helps enable their solutions integrate into a larger ecosystem of applications through the WebSphere Business Integration adapter framework.

    In addition to leveraging PartnerWorld benefits, IBM Business Partners realize the following benefits of participating in WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners:

  • Education, specific to enabling applications and building and deploying business processes on WebSphere Business Integration
  • Development software and support for assistance with the development of WebSphere Business Integration compatible products
  • Marketing support through an online catalog of applications and solutions enabled on WebSphere Business Integration
  • Sales enablement materials to help position WebSphere Business Integration products along with the partner's products and services
  • Alliance management for assistance with WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partners offerings and requirements

    After the business partner validates their solution through the WebSphere Business Integration Accelerators for Business Partner initiative, they may be eligible for the Ready for WebSphere Business Integration mark.

    The Ready for WebSphere Business Integration mark helps business partners differentiate their products and broaden their market reach by certifying that their solutions integrate with the leading software platform for e-business on demand. By receiving the Ready for WebSphere Business Integration mark, the solution will be easily identified as part of a large community of Business Partners with IBM compatible solutions.
