generationE Technologies Receives 2008 Business Partner Service Management Award From IBM

OAK BROOK, IL--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - IBM gave top honors to generationE Technologies (, a premier IBM Partner, at this year's IBM "Pulse" event in Orlando, a hefty amalgam of its annual Tivoli, Maximo and Netcool events. The "Business Partner Service Management Award" recognized generationE's contribution in IBM Service Management solutions, specifically its partnership with Aircell on their new in-flight internet service called Gogo, which is built on IBM's Tivoli software and Google Earth.

"We were pleased to see the innovative work generationE has been doing with Aircell in this high-visibility use of IBM Tivoli solutions in conjunction with Google Earth," said Joao Perez, vice president of worldwide sales, Tivoli Software, IBM. Al Zollar, Tivoli General Manager, presented the award to generationE co-founder, Christian Mack. The service management award was the pinnacle of recognitions for generationE, which also landed a top spot as the business partner with the most AAA solutions in IBM's new partner certification program and was featured as a pilot contributor on the new TADDM wiki -- a collaborative site for users of IBM's service management discovery tool.

The new "Tivoli Deployment Accreditation" identifies those IBM Business Partners with the highest standards in technical certifications. AAA-level Certified Partners have two Certified Solution Advisors within a specific solution area, three Certified Deployment Professionals around a specific product and an Advanced Certified Deployment Professional within a specific solution area.

The recent recognitions achieved by generationE are a further testament to its recent decision to part ways with BMC Software in favor of aligning itself more tightly with IBM's service management vision, a domain in which they continue to experience momentum.
