CLOUD Executive Perspective IBM Cloud Success Series Worldwide

Showcase your Cloud Technical Skills with IBM Cloud Deployment Proficiency Badges!

The long-awaited IBM Cloud Deployment Proficiency Badges for Cloud platform (formerly Bluemix) and Cloud infrastructure (formerly SoftLayer) are now officially launched.

It is a great program for cloud architects, developers and other technical professionals working for IBM Business Partners (BP) to show demonstrated success implementing IBM Cloud solutions, including platform and infrastructure. These individual badges can be used to differentiate your technical personnel as well as to showcase IBM recognition to your clients and on social media.

With the attainment of these badges, the deployment proficiency badge earner can analyze, design, architect and demonstrate IBM Cloud platform or infrastructure solutions based upon the workload requirements from a client, including security, storage, networking and management. The badge earner can provide a customer with a logical foundation to meet their requirements and a roadmap to get there.

The deployment proficiency badges are a combination of achieving specific required criteria, including certifications, badges, etc. from classes or workshops, in combination with demonstrated success proven by a client engagement.

Cloud Proficiency Badges are awarded to the individual—not the Business Partner organization. The deployment proficiency badges are separate from the IBM Business Partner Competencies at this time.

Feel free to reach out to our team should you have any questions about these exciting new badges!
