Description
Bottom rule

IBM WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition V6.2 works best with processes that require interaction across multiple divisions, departments, or applications and that can involve higher frequencies of change.

If you are experiencing:

  • Diminished business agility
  • Enforced alignment of business functions and processes to legacy application constraints
  • Difficulty responding to market and competitive pressures
  • High operating and maintenance costs

With this offering you can:

  • Design accurate and precise changes to the business with business-level modeling and simulation
  • Implement dynamic processes that define, leverage business services, composite business applications to reduce change complexity for rapid deployment
  • Gain visibility to sense and respond to changing business conditions, monitor and analyze results to drive change
  • Leverage optional industry content packs to accelerate the assembly of industry-specific composite business applications supporting WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition deployments with assets including:
    • Interoperability with WebSphere Business Modeler and WebSphere Business Monitor
    • Predefined sample process flow and KPI template for the reference implementation for
      • Banking Payments Content Pack
      • Insurance P&C Content Pack

      • Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Content Pack (new, focusing on business areas that include Product Data Management, Engineering Change Management, Bill of Material, and Supplier Collaboration)

Business-level modeling and simulation

Modeling is critical in business process management and integration. The first step to understanding your processes and streamlining how models are created, shared, and refined can save your business analysts time. However, the real value is the ability to run 'what-if' scenarios and to accurately predict how your process will flow, where the bottlenecks will be, and projected cost savings before you begin any implementation work.

Modeling capabilities included make it easier to

  • Document all your processes for understanding and compliance
  • Share output for training and collaboration
  • Calculate ROI before committing resources
  • Use real-time process performance data for iterative modeling and simulation

Rapidly deploy and change

WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition allows you to optimize your business processes so they respond to specific situations based on your business objectives. You can customize to a level you did not think possible and you can extend the life of your IT assets by making them more valuable through dynamic process capabilities.

Deployment and change capabilities include

  • Top down decomposition of industry domains into reusable building blocks called business services allowing business and IT alignment
  • Tooling and runtime to define, manage, and execute context-based business service policies to help increase business agility
  • Prebuilt assets can accelerate delivery of industry-specific business solutions via optional Industry Content Packs to decrease time to value

Monitor, predict, and act

WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition gives you actionable insight through configurable dashboards so you can

  • Manage your business in real time
    • Collect information from multiple sources
    • Management dashboards and reporting capabilities, including trending
    • Utilize tools to define or customize dashboards
    • Set KPI's based upon Key Performance Objectives
  • Intervene in deployed processes to identify business situations to initiate real-time response as performance data is received
  • Assemble metrics from multiple sources
    • Monitor both activities and applications
    • Monitor a broad set of environments
    • Use adapters and access source applications for business monitoring

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing _for_customers.html

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/valueunit calculator/vucalc.wss

Authorized user

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.
