The objective of original articles authored by IBM business partners on Destination z is to provide readers with a perspective on trends and directions in specific IBM System z market segments. Articles may cover topics such as trends in security, CICS, WebSphere, DB2, performance, systems administration, ERP, business intelligence, backup and recovery, application development, etc.

The content should position the writer (and therefore his/her company) as thought leaders in their industry. As a result business partner products may not be mentioned in Destination z articles. Content should be positioned at a strategic level, enabling the business partner to educate readers on the unique insight a solution provider in the IBM community has on their particular area of expertise.

All articles will be edited by MSP TechMedia editorial staff and may be altered as the editorial staff sees fit. Content in submitted articles must be original. Articles must be between 500 and 800 words in length.

We're excited about bringing the business partner's perspective to the Destination z readership and we look forward to working with you to deliver quality content.
