Eclipse Inc. recently completed a rigorous series of IBM certification tests to qualify as an IBM Premier Business Partner. Reaching Premier status extends Eclipse's technology partnership with IBM.

Certification is IBM's way of validating individual as well as corporate skills in the global workplace. In the Americas, Premier Business Partners are required to maintain a minimum number of sales and technical certifications to sell the pSeries product line.

Certification requirements for Premier Status on the pSeries require a total of eight certification titles; including five technical titles, three sales titles and one e-business sales title.
