Ground Rules Remain Unchanged
•
Setup and configuration services are an important part of accelerating the time to the full value of an IBM
PureFlex System.
Removal of these services can potentially impact the overall deployment experience and it is required
that these services, whether offered by qualified IBM Business Partner or IBM Services team (minimum
3 of IBM Lab Services units) are included as a part of the customer solution proposal
•
The default quantity of ServiceUnit MTM Features can be adjusted if an alternative pre-packaged offering
is selected or added
•
Additional prerequisites (e.g., VMware software licenses, Advanced FSM license) may apply
•
e-config users must contact IBM STG Lab Services team directly (or if not known via e-mail at
[email protected] or via web at ibm.com/systems/services/labservices/contact.html) to discuss the
requirements and to obtain the details on alternative pre-packaged offerings, an estimated number of
units and input on the prerequisites
•
e-config users would be responsible to make sure that appropriate quantity of the STG ServiceUnits are
included and that all the prerequisites are addressed
•
•
•
•
3
Lab Services Opportunity Manager (OM) will determine the total quantity of STG SerivceUnits and type of MTM
Feature or Part Number to be used in the quotation
Lab Services OM will provide input on the all required prerequisites and licenses
Pre-requisites will not be checked or enforced by the e-config or x-config tools
The proposals for services in offshore countries will be handled manually by LBS or a qualified BP

IBM PureFlex Services – Finishing the Task of Achieving the Your Goal
Every client must make their system production ready
• PureFlex takes several steps toward this goal by delivering an integrated
system to our Clients.
 Hardware components are pre-installed, cabled, and set-up with a default
configuration
 CMM and FSM are ready to configure
 VIOS is installed and ready to configure
 Storage/V7000 has a basic configuration applied
 Smart Cloud Entry install binary is loaded and ready for installation
 Ethernet switches and Fibre Channel switches will be preconfigured.
The above is valuable, but additional important steps are
required to prepare the PureFlex System for production.
 Hardware components must be integrated with the Client
environment (e.g. network cabling and configuration)
 CMM and FSM must be configured
 VIOS must be configured
 Storage typically requires customization
 Smart Cloud Entry must be
installed and configured

12 Step Process. How to Engage Lab Services
#
BP
1
Finalize the solution configuration for h/w & s/w components
2
Gain an agreement in principle with the end customer on the solution
configuration (h/w + s/w) sans services
3
Review pre-packaged Lab Services offerings with the end customer
4
Engage LS Opportunity Manager and provide the following input:
a) The finalized solution configuration with h/w & s/w components
b) End customer contact info
c) If known, the customer requirements with respect to the services:
e.g., if customer expressed a preference for any of the pre-packaged
offerings, if any customization is required (e.g., additional service
content)
5
LS OM
Pre-qualify the opportunity based on the initial input
6
Join the call to provide additional input (if applicable)
Conduct a sizing/scoping call with the BP
7
Coordinate a call with the end user (if applicable)
Conduct a sizing/scoping call with the end user (if applicable)
Provide input on
a) quantity and type of Lab Services units (e.g., MTM Features or
System x Part number)
b) any prerequisites (e.g, additional software licenses required to fulfill
the services, such as Adv FSM licenses, VMware licenses or SCE
licenses)
8
9
Add the required quantity of the Lab services units and prerequisite
line items into the solution configuration
Develop SOW and provide it to the BP
Create a distributor schedule (if 6911 MTM) and provide it to the
Distributor
10
11
Incorporate the services SOW into the solution proposal
Present it to the customer
12
13
Coordinate a call with the end user
(if applicable)
Discuss the scope of the SOW, approach, prerequisites, assumptions with
the BP/BSS & end user (if applicable)
© 2012 IBM Corporation
Handle contract negotiation w/ end user (if applicable)
BPs - Before submitting the bid to Pricing…
Pricing is handled through STG pricing process

How to find the Lab Services MTMs in e-Config Tool
STG Sales Specialists can use e-Config to create quotations for Lab Services MTMs
• STG Lab Services Machine Type Models and Features can be found in the hardware configurator (eConfig)
• Will not impact any machine configurations, non-shippable item
• STG Lab Services ServiceUnits can be quoted standalone or combined with HW or SW
