DB2 Support for Business Partners

Suggest allowing access to DB2 Support for IBM Business Partners companies who do not have a valid support contract, nor may have a valid DB2 licence at all, but despite all that devote their (working) lives preaching, selling and supporting DB2 for other customers, who - in turn - have a valid support contract and/or DB2 licence.

Or, in some cases, these customers may be very new to DB2 (and/or other IBM's technologies) and may not have an agreement/licence yet, but are very keen to migrate to DB2.
I.e., become a paying IBM customer.
In such situations, we (IBM Gold Consultants, IBM Champions, consultants, mere mortals) sometimes need to learn a bit more about DB2 than is available in the (former) DB2 Knowledge Cetre, in order to provide the (potential) customer with a critical piece of information.

The easiest way to do so (and probably the only one, unless you have a very good friend working in the DB2 labs) is to be able to (quickly) open a new DB2 Support Case, (quickly) ask what you need and (quickly) receive the information you need.

A very good (recent) example of such a case: TS016032690
