I've used IBM professional services in a few cases (not for my company but for some of my clients), and the people in professional services are really helpful. You call them and set a meeting for the initial planning session, but they usually most of the work already done, they just ask some questions and they fill in the blanks. However, in some cases implementation can take longer than planned.
