Overview
Bottom rule

WebSphere Business Services Fabric enables IT to allow business people to rapidly execute concurrent changes to individual and corporate-wide processes. It helps simplify and orchestrate the creation and management of service oriented architecture-based (SOA) business process management (BPM) for an entire corporation.

  • WebSphere Business Services Fabric enables IT to assemble legacy and new IT programs into SOA-based, discrete business functions called business services which can be assembled, shared, reused and changed using a business-friendly user interface and a business-defined vocabulary.
  • WebSphere Business Services Fabric stores and acts upon formerly hard coded, individual process attributes, such as roles, channels and rules, in a centralized, easily updatable database and runtime environment, enabling business service policies to define, manage and execute changes to be expanded concurrently across all applicable processes.
  • WebSphere Business Services Fabric has numerous prebuilt industry content packs to help accelerate the delivery of industry-specific business solutions.

WebSphere Business Services Fabric helps IT enable business people to respond at the speed of business to solve pressing business problems and take advantage of changing business conditions while helping to save IT effort and money.

WebSphere Business Services Fabric is also at the core of WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition which is designed to enable continuous, dynamic optimization of business processes by better aligning IT with the business, by sharing, discovering and reusing business processes. Both of these offerings are part of the IBM Business Process Management Suite, a comprehensive set of SOA-enabled role-based capabilities for continuous business process optimization that can deliver value across the organization.

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

WebSphere Business Services Fabric enables IT to allow business people to rapidly execute concurrent changes to individual and corporate-wide processes. It simplifies and orchestrates the creation and management of SOA BPM across an entire corporation.

WebSphere Services Registry and Repository is a prerequisite for WebSphere Business Service Fabric and provides a trusted source for storing and discovering technical services.

Together, WebSphere Business Service Fabric and WebSphere Services Registry and Repository can enable rapid deployment of business processes and ongoing changes through shareable, reusable business services driven by business service policies that enable definition, management and execution. Simpler and more accurate than coded configurations, the policies enable quick reaction to changing business needs, helping to provide an ever-escalating return on investment (ROI). Business service policies also enable full modeling, visibility and business service monitoring within the larger business process.

WebSphere Business Services Fabric is at the IBM core of complete, market-leading dynamic business process management solution. Called WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition, it enables business analysts to create, manage and continuously improve their business processes and includes the capabilities of all three of these products:

  • WebSphere Business Modeler Advanced to model and simulate
  • WebSphere Business Services Fabric to rapidly deploy and change
  • WebSphere Business Monitor to monitor, predict and act

WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition is a core offering in the BPM Suite which brings together all of the IBM BPM enabled by SOA offerings. Also included in the BPM Suite:

  • WebSphere Business Modeler Advanced to model process flows
  • WebSphere Integration Developer to code the modeled processes
  • WebSphere Process Server for a process runtime environment and to govern new and changed processes
  • WebSphere Business Monitor to monitor key business performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Tivoli® ITCam to monitor key technical indicators

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit (VU)

VU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. VU Value Unit entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, either users or resources, for the given program. A proof of entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of VU Value Units required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The VU Value Unit entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with VU Value Unit entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of VU Value Unit licensing, and to determine how many VU Value Units to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

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 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.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Processor Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

Per establishment

For each authorization you are permitted to deploy an unlimited number of copies of the licensed business models only on machines owned or leased by you that are located at a single physical site, including the surrounding campus and satellite offices.

Sub-capacity licensing on a per processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli License Compliance Manager within their offerings so that you can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on the use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a primary business contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements, and reporting, refer to Software Announcement 205-093, dated April 19, 2005.

If you order (this product) under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process.) You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
