RE: What is IBM's equivalent of MSDN ?



fixed

IBM say they want to be a software company and not just a hardware
company and yet their approach seems to be half-hearted at best.

At the risk of incurring edmund's wrath - you know what you get when you

combine i and Rational?

OK, ducking now - and I agree, giving such as you, Jon, this kind of
access would likely help the platform - also consultants - wouldn't it
be loverly to have a educational partnership through partnerworld -
maybe SWG and all their windows stuff, well, they'd like to be sure it's

not all out there for free, maybe. But the cost of being so tight-fisted

has to be pretty high.

It is very strictly ISVs Vern. There's not even an equivalent for
consultants or educators. As you can imagine this lack is something I
have had many conversations with IBM folk about.

There are few things about MS that I like - but the way that they
encourage (via MSDN and pother vehicles) people to use their OSs and
development software make certainly encourage you to use their stuff.
Wish I could say the same about Rational.

Craig is right - with IBM, you first need to become a partner - it's
possible albeit fussy, and you need to have a product idea to become
one. I don't know how long it will be before IBM wants to actually see
it!

Partnership is free - then you can purchase SAC - somewhere around
$1000 a year.

We had it at my previous job - it was very nice to have, well worth
it for ISVs.

There's nothing like it for us civilians, though - I don't know if
MSDN is available to anyone off the street, of if you also need to tell
MS what you have in mind product-wise.

All,

What is IBM's equivalent of MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network).
Whereby you get all IBM's software for development purposes on a
yearly subscription basis?
