Penumbra is a group of select IBM Business Partners who pool technical resources and management skills to create an ideal IBM Software provider network. We offer the competence and breadth of much larger companies at a lower cost. In addition, we deliver the full attention of our principal professionals to each project.

Currently Penumbra member companies worldwide provide a full range of IBM Collaboration Solutions services to millions of licensed users at hundreds of customer sites, covering IBM Notes & Domino, IBM Connections, IBM Quickr, IBM Sametime and IBM WebSphere. Our members' clients are located worldwide, across all industries and sectors.

Each year on the eve of IBM Connect(ED) (formerly Lotusphere), in Orlando FL, USA, the Penumbra Group hosts a dinner for our members and for invited guests from IBM. We are always very pleased to be joined by IBM's top executives and many others.


The Penumbra Prism Award is presented annually in recognition of people who have made an outstanding contribution to partnering with IBM Business Partners, or to the wider IBM community, or to Penumbra itself.

Our present and past winners are
