What we offer

Software Licensing

We are an IBM Silver business partner, design partner, and software reseller. We can help you size your environment with the correct licensing that is right for your business. Choose Software as a Service (with or without an IPSec Virtual Private Cloud), or perpetual licensing with software support.

Implementation Services

We have implemented IBM DevOps solutions at dozens of customer sites, from small distributed shops, to large z/OS based implementations at large financial customers. Strongback is an IBM Design partner and thought leader in the industry (just check out our blog). Let us design an implementation and adoption plan for you to maximize your ROI. 

CLM Right Sizing

Perhaps you did not purchase through us, or have us implement the solution. If the solution is not realizing what you expected, we can be your fixer. We have corrected failed or poorly implemented deployments and put customers back on the right path. We also offer independent verification and validation (IV&V) services to help you understand where your environment can be improved.

Training Services

We have courses on IBM Team Concert, Quality Manager, DOORs Next Generation, and other Rational products. Most of these can be offered remotely via virtual classroom, or onsite at your facilities. Find out more about our training offerings
