Key Information Systems Achieves Platinum Status in Newly Redesigned IBM PartnerWorld Program
IBM Platinum Partner Status Demonstrates Excellence in Delivering High Value Cloud and Cognitive Solutions

AGOURA HILLS, Calif.–Key Information Systems, Inc. (KeyInfo), a leading cloud and infrastructure provider, has achieved Platinum status in IBM’s new PartnerWorld program, redesigned for the “Cognitive era.” Earning the highest tier within the PartnerWorld program, Platinum Business Partners consistently demonstrate proven capabilities and expertise in IBM technologies to help their clients succeed in their digital transformation.

“Enterprises that tirelessly pursue new ways to embrace cloud advantages have come to rely on KeyInfo and IBM’s expertise, tasking us with their most pressing critical infrastructure challenges,” said Lief Morin, CEO of KeyInfo. “With the resources of IBM’s redesigned PartnerWorld program, we know we will continue to innovate and deliver the highest levels of service and satisfaction to our clients.”

IBM added the Platinum designation as part of its newly redesigned PartnerWorld program, which the company announced last February at the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference. The new, four-tiered PartnerWorld program moves IBM and its Business Partners from a product-centric model to one focused on competencies, customer satisfaction and revenue. The Platinum level is designed to recognize partners that consistently deliver the highest level of excellence. Organizations achieve the Platinum level by earning at least two competencies (one at the Expert level), attaining significant sales success, demonstrating client satisfaction and verifying two client references.

“The new PartnerWorld program is designed for ultimate simplification to help our partners both large and small succeed and drive velocity in high growth areas like cloud and cognitive,” said Marc Dupaquier, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners. “By achieving Platinum level, KeyInfo has shown its commitment and expertise in delivering client solutions with the power to transform businesses in the cognitive era.”
