New Services Contract Tool Coming February 22nd

Dear Channel Partners,

Please be advised that while there are changes coming next week that will impact system X hardware inventory and order management systems, the release of Lenovo’s services contract tool to the channel, One View will not happen until Feb 22nd. This date has been pushed out from the previous 1/11 release date. Please see the attached cutover plan.

What's Changing:

Effective Feb 22nd IBM's ISAT quoting tool will be replaced by Lenovo's own tool called "OneView" for the Channel. OneView will replace MCLM, ISAT and COL.

On 1/30/2016 no additional contract can be registered in IBM's system. There will be a blackout period from 1/31/2016 thru 2/15/2016 when the OneView tool will be unavailable to allow for the porting of the legacy IBM contracts into the tool. No quotes can be created between 1/30/16 and 2/14/16. This will be a total blackout period.

Please let us know if you have questions. Thanks!
