IBM Open Badges program – IBM Champion


this week all IBM Champions received a very special award – an IBM Champion Badge:

Looks great… But what is this good for?

Such a badge is an acknowledgement by IBM that the owner earned an IBM Champion title for one of the product brands:

  • IBM Social Business
  • IBM Power Systems
  • IBM Middleware
  • IBM Analytics

You can share this badge (share via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, URL …) on social and networking sites in order to advertise your own expertise and contributions. If you click on such a badge you can take a closer look at the persons profile describing the IBM Champion qualifications along with the process required to earn the badge:

There are special badges for people who are IBM Champion since several years (3, 5, 7 and 10 years milestone plus an additional lifetime award).

There is a great discussion and explanation about the IBM badges program by Nick Falkingham and David Leaser from IBM (seems the video / voice is out of sync – sorry for this):

I`m happy and proud that I received one of those badges! Really great idea IBM!!! Thanks a lot for this!
