More Partners

At the IBM Think conference back in May, Big Blue announced a large investment in its hybrid cloud ecosystem that prioritized the work of its channel partners.

“Across the board, we’re looking for more partners,” Whitehurst said in his Best of Breed session.

“That is about getting the right partners onboard, getting kind of just that broad set of partners.”

“We continue to drive significant kind of activity across all aspects of the ecosystem. And again, it’s not that IBM hasn’t in the past been very aggressive in working with our partners, but now it becomes really central to our strategy as we work to win the hybrid cloud platform, which is why you’re seeing so much more interest from us as it becomes central to how we’re going to succeed going forward.”

In recent months, IBM has onboarded 60 different partners to working with its Financial Services Cloud, Whitehurst noted.
