IBM® QuickFile (5725-F81)

Authorized User charge metric part numbers in IBM QuickFile are being withdrawn and replaced by User Value Unit charge metric part numbers. The User Value Unit charge metric calculation, based on Employee, scales to support volume pricing through Passport Advantage® .

All Authorized User use licenses, support reinstatement, and support renewal part numbers have corresponding User Value Unit replacement parts.

As contracts come up for renewal, ordering assistance is provided by the renewals manager or sales representative.

Unchanged by this announcement are Virtual Server part numbers for IBM QuickFile. The User Value Unit metric in IBM QuickFile V1.1 and Virtual Server metric in IBM QuickFile V1.0 are not alternative means of licensing QuickFile. Licensees must obtain sufficient User Value Unit entitlements and the appropriate number of Virtual Server entitlements.
