A New IBM Business Partner Program for Cloud Marketplace Resellers
IBM Cloud Marketplace Resellers now have the option to resell IBM’s top SaaS solutions through third-party cloud platforms. Transacting business via a cloud aggregator’s digital marketplace encourages IBM resellers to maintain profitable relationships with customers without long-term commitments.
The new model is an opportunity for IBM Cloud Marketplace resellers to focus on their portfolio and not on developing cloud infrastructure. This motion is a prerequisite for all IBM resellers to adopt the more profitable value-added, multi-vendor catalog with streamlined subscription management and provisioning using automated cloud marketplaces.

Why IBM Cloud Aggregators Aren't Your Typical Box Movers
Before cloud computing, distributors in traditional IT sales managed “pick, pack, and ship” services like logistics and credit. This business model's supply chain moved through VARs and along to end-customers.
Cloud and SaaS offerings changed everything. While the dinosaurs of the industry are turning their huge ships, agile competitors are making waves by offering resellers interesting alternatives - including the benefits of partnering with cloud aggregators.
There are two primary success factors when it comes to digital business models like the new IBM partner program.
