Overview
Bottom rule

IBM® Emptoris® Strategic Supply Management is a global platform designed to automate and streamline spending, supplier, and contract management processes for global 2000 companies.

IBM Emptoris Strategic Supply Management Managed Cloud Delivery is an optional IBM hosting service for organizations that prefer purchasing perpetual software licenses over license rental via Software as a Service (SaaS).

SaaS is both a commercial and delivery software model whereby clients subscribe to services for a term with applications centrally delivered via a cloud computing environment and accessed by users over the Internet. Increasingly businesses are using SaaS as a common commercial and delivery model because of its ability to help reduce costs and simplify deployment.

The Managed Cloud Delivery provides flexibility for customers who wish to own the software license but pay an additional, variable charge for the hosting service. The Managed Cloud Delivery provides the same benefits of the SaaS delivery model - fast deployment, limited upfront costs and reduced impact on internal IT resource.

For details on IBM Emptoris Strategic Supply Management, refer to Software Announcement 212-504, dated December 11, 2012.

For ordering, contact Your IBM representative. For more information, contact the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (426-2255). Reference: YE001

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
