The 2017 Beacon Awards will recognize IBM Business Partners around the world for your innovative use of IBM offerings, your technical excellence and resulting client satisfaction. Is your company delivering essential business value and transforming your clients’ businesses? Tell us how by submitting your nomination today.

Beacon Award winners can leverage the award for increased exposure in the industry and with clients, helping you to find new business opportunities. Use your story in your marketing campaigns. And raise your visibility with IBM colleagues.

Take Alpha Modus Research, for example—the 2016 IBM Beacon Award winner for Best New Application on IBM Cloud from an Entrepreneur. Within two months, the company was featured in an IBM Watson TV commercial that last aired on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street. Not only that, Alpha Modus Research recently presented at IBM BusinessConnect in Sri Lanka with Randy Walker, IBM Asia Pacific General Manager, and participated in IBM advertising for the Masters golf tournament. The company presented to over 700 top IBM sellers at the IBM Digital Sales University and delivered the keynote address at IBM DeveloperConnect in India. Now that’s visibility!

The 2017 awards recognize achievement across a range of solutions—including IBM Watson, Cloud and Analytics—that bring unique value to clients. Awards will be presented at the 2017 IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference (PWLC) from February 13 – 16 in Las Vegas.
