Price Changes in Monthly License Charges (MLC) on Selected IBM System z Software Programs

Effective date: January 1, 2016



Overview

IBM® announces increases in monthly license charges (MLC) on select operating system and select middleware software programs and their features. For the affected programs, the price changes will only apply to the following monthly license charge (MLC) software pricing metrics: VWLC, AWLC, EWLC, AEWLC, PSLC, FWLC and Per Engine. The price increase for a given program will be approximately 4% depending on the features selected.



In addition, IBM® announces that the price of the zOS V2 SDSF feature (5650-ZOS) will increase by approximately 20%, effective January 1, 2016 and apply to all software billing metrics. This increase reflects the additional functional enhancements described in the z/OS Version 2 Release 2 Announcement letter, ZP15-0369, and planned to be available beginning September 30 2015.



The timing of this announcement allows most clients to understand these changes before budgeting for the following year. Please note that in this instance IBM is giving more than the contractually required ninety days notice of an increase in charges.



Effective January 1, 2016 monthly charges will increase for the following programs:
