Everyone brags about how good their people are (so do we); in this case, however, we decided to let IBM do the talking.
“IBM is committed to supporting an ecosystem of skilled partners that can provide the most value to our shared clients. Business Partners who invest in the proper skills and expertise are well positioned to help clients achieve a faster time-to-value with the right solutions, reduce risk in solution development, and increase their return on investment over time.” These are the values IBM requires from its Business Partners. Oxford is honored to have progressed in a few short years to one of IBM’s most respected Business Partners for the Rational Software brand.
Oxford’s core assets are its people, Rational software certified and one of the few skilled business partners Sandy was talking about, and we like to believe, one of the best.
Oxford’s people are, to put it plainly, the best in the field of their respective technical disciplines. And that translates to a dual message for our clients:
- We deliver what we promise and we guarantee it, in a professional manner with courtesy and respect for each client team member.
- We focus on a few core Rational disciplines; we do not and will not provide services that are not in our technical portfolio.
- We will continue to add new products and technical disciplines from the Rational portfolio or from product sets such as Arcad that complement Rational, with solutions that prove tangible benefits to meet customer needs and resolve technical and business challenges.
What do you get with our team at your side? An expedited engagement process and smoother implementation. An Oxford team who understands that you also have a business to run. And the most important deliverable: training, skills transition and mentoring (training onsite or remote; planned to your schedule).
Where does it start? With our pre-sales and technical support team to discuss your business and technical challenges, requirements, success factors and potential constraints. And a constructive dialogue to identify solution approach(es), deliver product demonstrations, proof of concepts or pilots as needed, validate schedule and budget guidelines, identify potential barriers to success, and to prepare a plan for solution delivery.
Oxford’s staff has successfully managed global projects and deployed solutions for our clients for more than 14 years. And as an IBM Rational business partner since 2008 Oxford has delivered Rational product, solution services and formal training programs for many customers – and directly for IBM. And that is a testament to the trust and confidence IBM has placed in our people and in Oxford as their IBM Rational solutions partner.
