Description
Bottom rule

IBM Capacity Management Analytics on z/OS V1.1 is built upon IBM Cognos Business Intelligence for z/OS , IBM SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter for zEnterprise , IBM Capacity Management Analytics Solution Kit, and IBM Tivoli Decision Support for z/OS . IBM Capacity Management Analytics gives you the ability to manage the complete lifecycle of IBM zEnterprise .

To help you get started in your pursuit of the efficient management of zEnterprise , included in IBM Capacity Management Analytics is a set of predefined reports so you can quickly and efficiently begin understanding exactly how zEnterprise is being used. The starter set of reports include:

IBM zEnterprise is the mission-critical application platform of choice for most organizations today because of its unparalleled qualities of service and performance. However, like most enterprise environments, if not managed effectively, then availability, scalability, or performance issues may arise. This can result in service level agreements not being met for core applications that can directly affect bottom line results. When business critical systems are not performing effectively, the result is degradation in both customer satisfaction and business efficiency.

Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  1.00            =    3.00
Tier A       42   *   .45            =   18.90
Tier B      130   *   .36            =   46.80
Tier C      140   *   .27            =   37.80
Tier D    1,185   *   .20            =  237.00

Total     1,500                         343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

IBM System z Operational Support Services - SoftwareXcel is an option if you desire added services.

License Information form number

L-LCOE-98ZR2W

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products. Each of the included supporting products that run on z/OS must register for sub-capacity using this product's PID instead of its own. That support will be made available by the included products via an APAR that must be applied as soon as it becomes available. See this product's program directory for the list of APARs. If the included product's own PIDs show up in the SCRT report instead of this product's PID before the APARs become available, you will need to add an Exclude control statement for it when running SCRT.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for IBM System z On/Off Capacity on Demand (Z125-7883) must be signed prior to use.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
