We Can Help IBM Partners
As an IBM partner, your company sells software under both the IBM brand and your own brand. You also create lots of technical content including user guides, online help, and marketing collateral. In creating and publishing this content, you likely face challenges in managing:
- Multiple brand images: The published versions of the IBM-branded content that you produce are formatted to IBM’s specifications –and as a result they’re probably different in appearance and format from content that bears your own brand.
- Multiple tools: Your technical writing staff uses one set of tools (the ID Workbench) to develop and publish IBM-branded content and another set to develop and publish your own content.
- Duplicate content: You might be maintaining two sets of documentation – for example installation manuals or online help – that are essentially the same: one for the IBM-branded content and one for your own content.
- Partnership costs: Although your IBM partnership makes good business sense, there are added costs to maintain parallel processes and invest in multiple tools for developing, managing, and publishing content.
