If you have questions regarding your account information, see the original email that was sent 30 November 2011. It provided your IBM Customer Number (ICN), along with your Primary Contact information and your Site Technical Contact information. It is critical for you to have that information to be able to open a support case. If you need to change your Site Technical contact use the eCustomer Care Contact Information page.

For any software entitlement issues you encounter, see the eCustomer Care Contact Information page for your geographic location. This process allows you to either send an e-mail message with detail of the issue you are encountering and also provides the ability to contact IBM’s eCustomer Care team directly by phone.

For any Service Request (SR) issue you encounter, see the Software Support Customer Assistance form. The automated electronic process will provide a message to the SR team. The form is designed to address SR registration and log-on issues, SR usage questions, or define any other issue you may have encountered.

In the event you require escalation for any Passport Advantage or Service Request issue, send an email to . Provide the "SR" or "eCustomer Care" ticket number provided from the helpdesk, describing the issue with as much detail as possible. The IS Client Care team will acknowledge the receipt of your message and attempt to provide resolution at that time. In the event further follow-up is required to resolve the escalated request, the IS Client Care team will provide feedback and attempt to resolve the issue within 24 business hours.
