BP3 and the IBM Smarter Process Award
It’s a big honor to our team, which works hard every day to help our mutual customers succeed with IBM’s software. In particular, we should recognize our excellent professional services team members, who represent the cream of the crop in BPM consulting around the world. The track record of trust, competency, and success is one that precedes us where ever we go. It makes our job, and IBM’s job, of selling BPM to our customers, easier. And the reputation makes my job connecting with customers a real pleasure. Every day I get to accept the thanks that are really directed toward our professional services team.
Since the day IBM bought Lombardi, BP3 has been the fastest growing pure play BPM services provider. We’re now the largest pure play BPM services provider in the world – even while we have diversified into software and managed services. We owe thanks for much of that growth to our IBM ecosystem and relationships.
IBM runs a great partner program and ecosystem. Their ecosystem has been a competitive weapon for IBM for decades by softening rough edges, innovating on IBM’s platforms, and evangelizing with IBM’s solutions. We’ve benefited from IBM’s partner programs, their ability to partner with us in sales cycles, and from their software’s market share.
Strength of ecosystem won’t show up in the analysis of Industry gurus like Gartner and Forrester, but our customers can attest to the value of a partner like BP3.
Thanks to our team, and to IBM, for this win!
