Members of IBM PartnerWorld benefit from global marketing and technical enablement initiatives to drive new revenue and market opportunities through the delivery of innovative business solutions.
"I was definitely pleased to win the Beacon Award for 'Technical Excellence: Overall Technical Vitality' because this honor speaks to the most significant contribution Sirius can make to our IBM peers and our clients - the ability to design and implement integrated technical solutions based on all IBM products and services," said Joe Mertens, President, Sirius Computer Solutions. "Technical vitality is our number one goal across the sales teams, product specialists, consultants and architects that work with our clients and is an area in which we heavily invest and excel."

Sirius holds more than 3,100 certifications, ensuring that clients have an extraordinary pool of qualified talent to solve even the most technical challenges.
In the current economic climate, Sirius enables its clients to adopt and implement solutions that increase productivity, provide a fast return on investment, lower TCO and reduce the environmental demands and impact of their IT infrastructure by helping them virtualize and consolidate both server and storage resources. This emphasis on helping clients invest smarter, rather than just trying to sell more hardware, directly related to Sirius' revenue growth in 2008 and into 2009.
The IBM Beacon Awards recognize excellence in the development and delivery of solutions and services that Business Partners deliver to clients around the world. More than 340 nominations worldwide were judged by a team of leading industry journalists, analysts and IBM executives, who selected winners and finalists in the 22 award categories.
