    Business partner withdrawal

    BP - Marketing information

    The withdrawn programs will be removed from the Business Partner Exhibit to the IBM Business Partner Agreement. Effective December 31, 2004, orders will not be accepted. Business Partners who require an additional license of the withdrawn programs to run on an end user's additional processor should contact an IBM representative. Orders for the licensed programs must be received by the IBM Business Partner before December 31, 2004. If you have any questions about this notification, contact your IBM representative. For new orders, the customer-requested arrival date (CRAD) can be no later than January 31 2005. NOTES: 1. Orders for Lotus, IBM, and Tivoli brand software being placed must be received by Order Fulfillment at least three days before the effective withdrawal date to ensure order processing. Our goal is to process all orders before a product's effective withdrawal date; however, orders not received three days before the effective withdrawal date cannot be guaranteed to be fulfilled, which would result in the order being returned. 2. IBM Business Partners have voiced a concern about the sales process turnaround time (the date the end user places an order with the re-seller until the date the order is entered into the ordering system) and how it affects orders that are being placed just before the product becomes obsolete. This should help clarify the ordering process. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS PROVIDED FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY. IBM PRODUCTS CAN BE ORDERED ONLY UNDER THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS REFLECTED IN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. SOME PRODUCTS REFERENCED MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN YOUR AREA. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL IBM SALES REPRESENTATIVE FOR PRODUCT AVAILABILITY DETAILS.
