Overview

Competitive trade-up features are introduced for COBOL for AIX® and PL/I for AIX.

Clients moving from an eligible competitive environment can now license certain IBM® compilers for their application development environment at an attractive price.

To be eligible for the trade-up, you must have acquired a license of an eligible competitive program. An eligible competitive program is any non-IBM COBOL or PL/I compiler program that compiles source code written in the same programming language that will be compiled by the compiler that you are trading up to. For example, you can trade up from another vendors' COBOL compiler to IBM COBOL for AIX or another vendors' PL/I compiler to IBM PL/I for AIX.

Competitive trade-up features allow you to migrate, at a reduced cost, from other vendors' compilers to the IBM COBOL for AIX and IBM PL/I for AIX compilers.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: RE001).

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.

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Concurrent User is a person who is accessing the program at any particular point in time. Regardless of whether the person is simultaneously accessing the program multiple times, the person counts only as a single Concurrent User. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but licensee must obtain entitlements for the maximum number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each simultaneous Concurrent User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

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.

Passport Advantage trade up

You must have previously acquired a license for an eligible competitive product to be eligible to acquire a license of the IBM product.

To be eligible for the trade-up, you must have acquired a license of an eligible competitive program. An eligible competitive program is any non-IBM COBOL or PL/I compiler program that compiles source code written in the same programming language that will be compiled by the compiler that your are trading up to. For example, you can trade up from another vendors' COBOL compiler to IBM COBOL for AIX or another vendors' PL/I compiler to IBM PL/I for AIX.

Consult your IBM representative if you have any questions.

For ordering information on COBOL for AIX, V4.1.1, refer to Software Announcement 210-249, dated February 7, 2012.

For ordering information on PL/I for AIX, V3.1, refer to Software Announcement 211-203, dated February 7, 2012.

Trade-up license: To order the trade-ups described in this announcement for 5724-Z87 and 5724-PL1, specify the type-model number and the applicable features from the tables below. The medium feature number (CD-ROM), found in a previous announcement need only be specified as required.

Trade-up from Competitive User to Authorized User

You must have previously acquired a license for an eligible competitive product to be eligible to acquire a license of the IBM product.

Customers who have originally acquired licenses for User of a competitive product can trade-up their user licenses to an equivalent number of Authorized User licenses of the IBM product.

An eligible competitive program is any non-IBM COBOL or PL/I compiler program that compiles source code written in the same programming language that will be compiled by the compiler that your are trading up to. For example, you can trade up from another vendors' COBOL compiler to IBM COBOL for AIX or another vendors' PL/I compiler to IBM PL/I for AIX.

The following table describes conditions for trade up.
