IBM: A Premier Partner for Enterprise Portals, Commerce, Business Intelligence, MDM and More

Perficient is honored to be given the IBM Collaboration and Solutions Award for Best Digital Experience at IBM connect 2014. This award honors partners who have achieved and demonstrated year-to-year growth in their solutions and dedicated commitment to invest in their business.

IBM Best Digital Experience Award

Perficient has been delivering IBM portal and collaboration solutions for almost 15 years and have delivered more than 1300 portal projects across all major industries. We are proud to be the only three-time recipient of the coveted IBM Lotus North America Distinguished Partner Award and are delighted to add Best Digital Experience 2014 to our portfolio

Perficient belongs to an elite group of IBM solution-focused software business partners. We architect, design and implement industry-focused, integrated solutions leveraging the entire IBM software suite of solutions, including:


Our customers look to us as a trusted advisor with the technical expertise, business acumen and proven implementation  methodologies necessary to deploy technology solutions that solve the complex business issues facing the Global 2000 in today’s marketplace. We have customer references and case studies across all industries and all IBM solution areas.

IBM recognizes Perficient as a Premier Business Partner, the highest partnership status granted by IBM.  IBM has acknowledged and awarded Perficient’s technical expertise and innovative approach to solving our customers’ business challenges via multiple awards and authorizations. These include: 


Perficient’s investment in our IBM partnership is extensive.  We provide software resell, product training and implementation services across the IBM software portfolio.

As a Software Value Plus Authorized IBM Reseller, Perficient can provide training and implementation expertise for the software we resell. Unlike a traditional “software house”, we have the ability to combine the software purchase and implementation services to provide our clients with the lowest total cost of ownership, and prevent a software purchase from becoming shelf-ware. We are also well versed in IBM software subscription and support renewals and can help to analyze your purchase history and current needs to assure you receive the best possible value for your software renewal.

Perficient is a longstanding IBM Authorized Training Partner. We can deliver IBM software training via our classrooms, on-site at your location or one of our local offices across the U.S., or virtually via an on-line classroom. Our trainers are hands-on implementation experts and have the ability to customize coursework to your specific needs.

Perficient knows that each customer environment and level of IBM product knowledge is unique, with unique training and support needs. To solve this challenge, we have developed our own proven approach to ensure a successful implementation.  The Quick Start Rulebook (QSR) is based off of our best practices and experience in implementing a new technology platform in a customer’s environment and providing the hands-on training, ongoing enablement and customized documentation necessary for a client to successfully support and maintain the new technology platform. We also provide on-going support services, should they be required.

When it comes to IBM software product implementation expertise, Perficient is second to none. Our project implementation teams have attended thousands of hours of IBM training, obtained hundreds of technical and industry certifications and are considered an extension of the IBM Software Lab Services delivery teams. In fact, our partnership with the IBM Software Lab Services team provides Perficient the same level of product training and hands-on experience as an IBM employee and allows us to work hand in hand with the IBM Lab teams when appropriate.

Perficient experts are regular speakers at IBM conferences, on webinars and are featured content contributors to blogs and IBM-sponsored publications. We have had numerous case studies describing our successful customer implementations published by IBM and are members of IBM Software Product Advisory Boards for IBM Collaboration Services, MDM PIM and the Data Governance Advisory Board.

“Perficient’s industry expertise, combined with their deep technical strength across the entire IBM software portfolio, allows them to deliver best-in-class industry focused solutions, such as the Integrated Performance Platform for healthcare providers they’re collaborating on with Premier,” said Rob Thomas, Vice President of Business Development for IBM Software Group, Information Management. “Perficient is an exemplary IBM business partner.”
