Product positioning
Bottom rule

BTT V8.1 is positioned as the required tooling and infrastructure product to quickly build versus buy customer multichannel banking applications, for banks wanting to better differentiate themselves and ultimately better serve their customers than is possible by implementing a traditional, prebuilt banking solution.

The BTT Mobile Banking content delivered in BTT V8.1 is positioned for banks that require prebuilt, ready-to-use, mobile banking applications This not only helps BTT compete with the leading, prebuilt, mobile banking solutions, but also helps banks accelerate their multichannel and mobile banking development efforts. BTT provides better customizability and multichannel support than traditional, prebuilt banking channel applications.

Charge structure

WebSphere Multichannel BTT Enterprise Edition V8.1

The price of WebSphere Multichannel BTT Enterprise Edition V8.1 is based on the total Processor Value Units (PVU) on all systems and nodes executing any part of the product, including application developer workstations and end user workstations running the application that is built using this product.

WebSphere Multichannel BTT Enterprise Edition V8.1 is available as part of the IBM On/Off CoD offering. It allows your client to pay a fee to enable and use temporary capacity, based on customer eligibility. For details, refer to Software Announcement 203-202, dated August 12, 2003.

WebSphere Multichannel BTT V8.1

As an alternative to purchasing WebSphere Multichannel BTT Enterprise Edition PVU licenses for the deployment of end-user applications built using the Enterprise Edition product, clients can purchase Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit Authorized User license (D5C2YLL) for each end user.

For end users who cannot be counted or verified, clients must purchase the enterprise license for deployment to cover entitlement for this use. WebSphere Multichannel BTT user license option can only be purchased when the end users can be counted and verified. To purchase WebSphere Multichannel BTT Workgroup Edition Authorized User licenses, clients must hold a WebSphere Multichannel BTT Enterprise Edition license (D56G3LL).

A Workgroup Edition license does not entitle the user to use any development feature of WebSphere Multichannel BTT. Developers require an Enterprise Edition license.

The price of WebSphere Multichannel BTT Workgroup Edition V8.1 is based on the number of authorized users. Clients of WebSphere Multichannel BTT Workgroup Edition should plan on implementing counting methods for users and then obtain additional user entitlements to the extent required. The Workgroup Edition price is independent of how many PVUs are serving the licensed users. Those processors may include S/390® processors.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

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.
