What do you mean by Expert-level Competency in Analytics Platform, Analytics Solutions, Cloud, Security, Social, Watson, Watson Customer Engagement or Watson IoT. Need more clarity on this. If we don't achieve expert level by 30th Sep, 2017, when is the next chance for us to become eligible for co-marketing funds.
I want to add my thanks to the IBM Business Partners who work with us day in and day out, and awarded us this honor.
