Description:

Early Access Programs

IBM Turbonomic's early access program provides an opportunity for key customers to deliver feedback on upcoming features before they are available for public use. This allows our Engineering and Product Management organization to build customer feedback into the product much earlier in the process and affirm our focus of customer centricity in design. By enrolling a customer in an early access program, you are agreeing to working with your customer to upgrade to a version that includes the new feature code (most likely hidden behind a feature flag) and facilitating one or more feedback sessions directly with Product Management and Engineering within the early access window. Account teams are not expected to be trained on unreleased features or be able to present them. PM and Engineering will own and work directly with the customer to acquire product feedback. Early Access features are not for selling/POVs, but to improve the product quality of new capabilities.
