Learn which software products and competencies are included

IBM and HCL have confirmed the official close, at the end of June 2019, of the previously announced acquisition of select IBM products for security, marketing, commerce, and digital solutions. As part of the close, HCL takes full ownership of the research and development, sales, marketing, delivery, and support for AppScan, BigFix, Commerce, Connections, Digital Experience (Portal and Content Manager), Notes Domino, and Unica.

Due to the divestiture of the selected IBM software products to HCL, the Collaboration Solutions, Watson Commerce and Watson Marketing competencies are withdrawn from the IBM PartnerWorld Program effective immediately.

Impacted competencies will be removed from all Business Partner profiles. This action will not have an impact on PartnerWorld Program levels until revalidation takes place on January 1, 2020. Competency entitlements and Business Partner marks will be removed from the system and may no longer be used in marketing efforts. Please plan to remove Business Partner marks associated with the identified competencies from your website and print/digital/hardcopy collateral.

Due to the withdrawal of the competencies, all associated PartnerWorld Program benefits, including Co-Marketing offerings related to the divested IBM products, are immediately withdrawn.
