Overview
Bottom rule

This release extends national language support, introduces an optional product access management feature, and delivers enhancements to selected IBM® i2® Intelligence Analysis portfolio products.

National language support

This release adds national language support for the following products:

For details, refer to the Availability of national languages section.

Product access management

This release also delivers optional customer-controlled product access management features that can help IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis portfolio customers ensure that their organization is in compliance with the terms of their license agreement with IBM through controlling user access to:

This capability can be used to help customer organizations ensure that only the correct number of users can access these IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis products within their networks and to help ensure that the right to use them is allocated to the users who actively need them.

Product access management is an optional feature that is provided with the applicable IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis portfolio products. It is the organization's choice to activate the feature. Once activated, product access management uses a permit-based, client-server model that allows customers to implement access control.

Permits that represent an organization's entitlement to the IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis products are stored on a server. Applications with the product access management feature switched on request a permit during start-up, and if a permit is available, the product will load. The permit is returned to the server when the application closes.

The permit type supplied is "concurrent network" with an optional borrowing capability. The borrowing capability allows users to borrow a permit from the available concurrent pool so they can use an IBM i2 Intelligence Analysis product for a period of time while disconnected from the network.

Product access management elements consist of:

Product enhancements

This release adds geospatial support for Esri ArcGIS 10.1 and MapInfo Professional 11.5 for IBM i2 iBase, when used in conjunction with IBM i2 iBase Graphic Information System Interfaces, and IBM i2 Analyst's Workstation. Supporting these updates provides customers with the latest compatible environments.

Additionally, IBM i2 iBase now supports Microsoft™ SQL Server 2012. Refer to the Software requirements section for details.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: SE001).

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.
