As promised in my blog (Multifarious Cogitations), I will focus in this blog entry on one area that we are bolstering as part of ‘Delight the install base’ (see #1 from the chart I posted). Just to be clear the current install base is comprised of companies that range in size from very small businesses to the largest of enterprises across the globe.
So, for those of you that are still not clear what this blog entry is about based on the title, I will tell you:
It is about support!
The IBM Data Management Global Support Team is driven to differentiate itself with superior support in the market. They are Informix advocates holding the same level of passion as our clients and Business Partners. Their mission is to ensure client success, while establishing enduring relationships. Hopeful these attributes ring true relative to your personal experience in working with our global team.
