In addition to Talisma’s customers, Gomersall says the ServerProven program also benefits its business partners, resellers and developers, allowing them to leverage IBM’s business and technological strength as they develop and distribute Talisma’s award-winning solutions.

"We’re excited that Talisma has completed validation and has officially become a member of the IBM ServerProven program," said Nancy Williams, Director, PartnerWorld for Developers, eServer* xSeries**.
