Business Partner awards
The IBM Rational team is pleased to announce the 5th annual IBM Rational Business Partner Awards. The Rational Channel Marketing team is building upon last year's successful awards program which recognizes IBM Business Partners who have demonstrated excellence in delivering business value solutions to our clients based on their integrations with IBM Rational software.
New this year! We are adding a new award – the IBM Innovate Best of Show award. The Innovate 2012 Best of Show award is specifically for sponsors of the Innovate Conference. Four semi-finalists will be selected to demonstrate their solution at the Solution Center. After a final review by a set of IBM executives, a winner will be determined.
Award winners and finalists will be notified on or before May 1, 2012. The awards will be announced and presented during the IBM Business Partner Summit at Innovate 2012 on Sunday, June 3, 2012.
Nominations close at 11:59 PM, April 19, 2012.
