1. "Wow" elevator pitch

To kick off our partnership, let's create a "wow" -- a powerful elevator pitch that hooks people in 1-2 slides! We, the IBM Hybrid Cloud Partner Ecosystem team, will act as an advocate for you, the partner, in conversations with groups within IBM. The purpose of the "wow" document is to equip us with the information we need to effectively advocate for your product in those discussions. We need to be describe how your product can amplify one or more of the IBM offerings. Most importantly, we need to be able to clearly articulate the joint value proposition to customers of pairing your product with the IBM Hybrid Cloud offering.

Detailed instructions

  1. Download the template "wow" slide deck: https://ibm.box.com/s/bni94shp2qx9tm20053bn21m6s94rkr6. We provide a standard template, but you should add your company/product branding.

  2. On Slide 1, provide the information we need to create a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Once we received this information, we'll create and send you the NDA to sign. Or, if you've already signed an NDA with IBM, send us a copy!

  3. On Slide 2, identify the IBM offering with which your product is most closely aligned and the joint value proposition of the pairing. To learn about the IBM Hybrid Cloud offerings, refer to the links provided on an earlier page in this guide.

  4. Slide 3 needs to convey the big wow. Example: https://ibm.box.com/shared/static/3b91j3r6dwwzx9wvs1ar2cih3e8qh55z.png

To complete this step:

Email your "wow" slide deck to [email protected]. We prefer a link, rather than a file -- this way you can keep the file up-to-date, rather than sending us send us a copy that will become stale.
