IBA Group Achieves IBM Platinum Partner Level
On May 15, 2019, IBA Group achieved a Platinum level, the highest tier in the IBM PartnerWorld program. IBA Group consistently demonstrates proven capabilities and expertise in IBM technologies that help customers succeed in their digital transformation initiatives.
To achieve the Platinum level, an IBM partner needs to earn a competency at the Expert level, attain significant sales success, and demonstrate client satisfaction by providing multiple client references. To date, IBA Group is the only Platinum Partner of IBM in Belarus, one of four Platinum Partners in Russia, and one of three Platinum Partners in Kazakhstan.
The new partnership level provides IBA Group in the Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and South Africa with additional opportunities in terms of marketing, management, and technical support.
For IBA Group’s present and future clients, the Platinum Partnership brings a number of benefits, including the following:
- Better access to IBM specialists, experts, and knowledge resources
- Priority access to new IBM product releases
- Freedom to select IBM products by suitability, not availability
- Preferential pricing from IBM.

Building up its capabilities, IBA has extended its expertise to cover virtually all IBM platforms. During the period of partnership, IBA Group has received numerous awards and recognitions from IBM.
