PacGenesis Achieves Gold Partner Status Within The IBM PartnerWorld Program

PacGenesis, a Premier IBM Aspera Partner has recently announced a major achievement in attaining Gold Partner status within the IBM PartnerWorld Program. This marks a big step in the continued partnership between PacGenesis and IBM moving into 2021. This elevated status awarded to PaGenesis allows PacGenesis clients to benefit from even more partner-enabled IBM exclusive benefits heading into the new year.

On the achievement, Scott Pecnik, CEO of PacGenesis, said “our attainment of Gold Partnerworld status represents both our success as a business and our dedication to IBM products and customers.  We are looking forward to expanding the partnership in 2021 and beyond as we deepen our relationship with the #1 Hybrid Cloud Solution Provider.”

IBM PartnerWorld Program & What it Means For PacGenesis Clients

The IBM PartnerWorld Program is founded on education and technical training to help enable IBM Partners as they work with their clients. This investment in enablement and training helps IBM partners act as an extension of IBM as they support their own clients on IBM solutions. Client enablement is at the core of both IBM and PacGenesis. 

Just this year, David La Rose was appointed General Manager of the IBM PartnerWorld Ecosystem. In a recent interview with theCUBE, David spoke on IBM’s investment in the partner program moving into 2021 and their laser-focused support for IBM clients through their partners. To do so, IBM is focusing on resources and investment to create more educational opportunities and incentives for partners to better serve clients. Further, based on the request of IBM clients, IBM is also supporting partners to adopt a cloud-ready mentality for those clients looking to move into the cloud. 

All of this investment and focus demonstrates how IBM values their partner program through PartnerWorld and shows that achieving Gold status is a major accomplishment.  Matthew Pudhorodsky, IBM Partner Sales Manager at IBM, said “It’s been a pleasure working with the entire PacGenesis team.  One of their greatest attributes is the constant drive to provide a level of rock solid support that their IBM customers have come to know and expect.  This achievement is well deserved, and gives PacGenesis the recognition they deserve within the IBM Partner Ecosystem.”

Registered, Silver, Gold & Platinum Status Overview

The IBM PartnerWorld path from registered to platinum provides new and exciting opportunities for partner clients and holds with it a certain level of IBM expertise as IBM Partners seek to move up the ranks in partner status.


Registered Partner is the first available partner tier for IBM Partners. This tier authorized organizations to resell IBM solutions as a verified IBM Partner within IBM PartnerWorld. For companies to better support their clients and move into Silver, they have to demonstrate sales success and show their level of technical understanding through training and certification programs.


At Silver, IBM Partners benefit from access to more educational material, more certification capabilities, and get access to education discount vouchers that can help support their clients. Of course, to move out of silver into gold is going to require dedication to the program and to their clients. For a partner to move into Gold status, they must achieve 1st competency and verify that competency reference. This again shows that IBM values the IBM Partner Ecosystem to be technically enabled and up-to-speed on all IBM solutions so they can act as an extension of IBM as they support their clients.


Gold status raises the bar once again. Here IBM Partners must maintain valid client satisfaction surveys, build client sales success, and achieve a 2nd-year competency to maintain Gold and look to push into that platinum status.


This is where PacGenesis is heading. Platinum status is the highest partner status level. This tier awards both the partner and client tons of benefits from discounted education to IBM Cloud credits, to 1st priority PartnerWorld concierge support.
