As you are probably aware by now, IBM and HCL recently announced the acquisition of a number of IBM product suites. As an IBM partner, you may have a number of questions around the future directions and commitments we are planning, including any partner and loyalty programs. However, we are limited by regulations as to the details we can discuss at this time.
We want to take this opportunity to let you know about the HCL PartnerConnect program that will be launching shortly.
HCL will continue the critical partner ecosystem model. We believe that all our product groups rely on highly technical experienced partners with great market presence. Our partners provide an energetic ecosystem, help with client retention, spur innovation, demonstrate brand loyalty, and continuously seek to strengthen and grow their footprint inside our joint customers. These attributes are complementary to HCL’s aspiration and as such we offer the following values of relationship, capabilities, and service.
We will make the registration link available to HCL PartnerConnect program in January of 2019, where you will be able to register as an HCL Products and Platforms partner and learn more about the program. In the meantime, we will be working hard building a world-class software products business based on the principles of best-in-class products, ease-of-use and support. We look forward to further communication and connection with the community as we move into 2019.
The FAQ on the new microsite and registration site will supply answers to many questions you may have. If you require any more immediate responses, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavor to respond as soon as we can.
