IBM Case Foundation V5.2, formerly known as IBM FileNet Business Process Manager, updates

Reduced total cost of ownership with unified content and process engines

Process Engine now runs on Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) - The Process Engine has been combined with the Content Engine so that both now run in the same Java virtual machine (JVM) within a JEE server. The new engine is called the Content Platform Engine. Detailed tuning recommendations for the Content Platform Engine will be available under the technical notices on the support site.

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=3247&uid=swg27010422

Update function examples:

Content Platform Engine services multiple databases - In previous releases, a Process Engine could only service a single database. If multiple databases were required, multiple Process Engine instances were required. In IBM Case Foundation V5.2, a single Content Platform Engine can service multiple databases. Additionally, multiple Content Platform Engines may reside on a single server servicing databases in one or more IBM FileNet P8 domains.

Component Manager service now included in Content Platform Engine - In previous releases, the Component Manager was installed and run from the Application Engine. In Case Foundation V5.2, the Component Manager now runs as a service within the Content Platform Engine. All IBM components, such as CE_Operations and WSRequest, are now serviced by the integrated Content Platform Engine. If you have custom components, you may either run them separately from the Application Engine as before or can easily bring them into the new integrated environment of Case Foundation V5.2 via the Process Configuration Console. High availability and load balancing are all inherited from the Content Platform Engine.

Support for database sharing via schema

Previously, each new content and process repository required its own database. Content and process repositories may now be defined within a user specified database schema. This provides consistency for content and process repository, and allows scaling and application isolation while reducing the number of physical databases to be administered with the solution.

Expanded flexibility and cost savings - IBM Case Monitor and IBM Case Analyzer

Case Monitor and Case Analyzer data mart (RDBMS) service now runs in Content Platform Engine - Previously, the Case Monitor Analyzer publishing server was installed and run on its own server using its own high availability mechanism. In Case Foundation V5.2, the service is installed and integrated into the Content Platform Engine. This reduces the number of installations and servers required for the platform. High availability and load balancing are leveraged from the Content Platform Engine.

Support for multiple data mart databases - Previous versions of Case Monitor and Case Analyzer required installing a dedicated server instance for each separate data mart database. In Case Foundation V5.2, a single data mart publishing service can service multiple data mart databases.

Support for Linux™ , UNIX™ , IBM DB2® , and Oracle - To deliver platform flexibility, the Case Analyzer publishing service now publishes to DB2 and Oracle databases in addition to Microsoft™ SQL Server from Linux and UNIX platforms, as well as Microsoft Windows™ Server platforms.

Note: If you are using Case Analyzer OLAP processing capability, you still have to install Microsoft SQL Server.

Additional Case Monitor functions - Additional displays are available showing operational summary like output and productivity over a time period. Case Monitor can now present historical process data in addition to in flight process data in the Case Monitor dashboard. Historical data may be collected for a recent time period such as weekly summary for the last month or the last quarter.

Enterprise manageability improvements with simplified administration

Unified Content Engine and Process Engine installer program - Installation of the Content Platform Engine is performed with a single installation and single ear file. This greatly simplifies and reduces the number of installations required for the IBM FileNet P8 platform.

Unified Content Engine and Process Engine initial software configuration and deployment tool for JEE application server (CMUI) - CMUI is the only tool needed for the configuration and deployment of the unified Content Platform Engine for JEE application server.

Unified Content Engine and Process Engine server up and running administration console - The administration console for Content Platform Engine, formerly known as the administration console for Content Engine, now supports up and running configuration for process and Case Analyzer data mart publishing service in addition to full content administration capability.

FileNet Business Process Manager components withdrawn from IBM Case Foundation

IBM Business Process Framework component has been withdrawn from the IBM Case Foundation V5.2 bundle. For the withdrawal of service for IBM Business Process Framework, refer to Withdrawal Announcement 913-025, dated March 12, 2013 .

If you are utilizing Business Process Framework, you can continue to do so, and also continue to obtain technical support following the enhanced support policy of minimum five years base support plus three years (fee-based extension) from the general availability date of IBM FileNet Business Process Manager V5.1. To ease the transition, IBM will continue to certify Business Process Framework with future releases of IBM Case Foundation until the Business Process Framework end of service date is reached. Refer to the IBM Software Support Lifecycle website for more information.

http://www.ibm.com/software/support/lifecycle/

The recommended path forward, if you are a Business Process Framework customer who wishes to create new case-style solutions, is through IBM Case Manager. IBM Case Manager is critical for design and delivery of case-style solutions and is the future direction for case-based applications from IBM . Should you want to transition existing Business Process Framework applications, there are a number of assets available to assist.

Contact your local ECM sales team for more details.

IBM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Widgets component, along with IBM Mashup Center, are withdrawn in IBM Case Foundation V5.2. If you currently use ECM Widgets, the recommended path forward is to either transition to the IBM Content Navigator platform or to IBM Case Manager. If you utilize ECM Widgets, you can continue to do so, and also continue to obtain technical support following the enhanced support policy of minimum five years base support plus three years (fee-based extension) from the general availability date of IBM FileNet Business Process Manager V5.1. IBM ECM Widgets V4.5.2.x, delivered with IBM FileNet Business Process Manager V5.1, is also supported under IBM Case Foundation V5.2.

For more information on ECM Widgets, a component of BPM, refer to

Charge metrics definitions

The subject programs have a new structure for licensing and pricing designed for clarity, simplicity, and unity with other products in the IBM Enterprise Content Management portfolio. The former approach relied upon licensing servers and users -- with users licensed on a Named, Concurrent, e-business, Employee, and External basis. This has been replaced with a new approach based on Value Units (VUs), with a primary focus on user access.

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.

IBM Case Foundation is available in one the following User Value Units (UVU):

Employee User: All employees of the company/subsidiary must be licensed, even if only a subset of the employees are actual users. Agents and contractors, acting on behalf of the customer, count as employees. At all times, both the number of Employee UVU entitlements and the number of Add-On Employee UVU entitlements must meet or exceed the total employee headcount of the customer enterprise. EUVU cannot be mixed with AUVU for the same product.

External User: External users are generally the customer's customers who will need infrequent, read-only access to the program. License may only be used by persons who are not employees, agents, or contractors of the customer affiliates or subsidiaries.

Add-On User License: Grants user access to incremental product capability in IBM Case Manager, given that user is already licensed for the appropriate base functionality (for example, IBM FileNet Content Manager, IBM FileNet Content Manager Starter Pack, IBM Content Manager, and IBM Content Manager Starter Pack).

Starter Pack User

The following restrictions apply:

  1. You may not use an IBM Case Manager Starter Pack with a repository that at any time shares an object store and a configuration database with another repository.
  2. You may only use an IBM Case Manager Starter Pack in conjunction with one repository.
  3. You may use an IBM Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On in conjunction with up to two of the following repositories: IBM FileNet Content Manager, IBM FileNet Content Manager Starter Pack, IBM Content Manager, or IBM Content Manager Starter Pack.
  4. The maximum number of SP AUVUs that the licensee may use in conjunction with a given ECM Starter Pack, including IBM Case Manager Starter Pack and IBM Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On, at any time is 790 (the maximum Case Manager Starter Pack utilization level).

Trade-up license means an entitlement that enables a licensee to exchange a license of one IBM Case Manager Starter Pack to a license of the IBM Case Manager program product at a specific price; a licensee may exchange a license of one IBM Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On to a license of the IBM Case Manager Add-On program product at a specific price. Once a trade-up license is obtained with respect to a given Case Manager Starter Pack or Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On, the IBM Case Manager program license that the licensee receives replaces the licensee's original entitlement to the Case Manager Starter Pack or Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On and the licensee has no further right to use the Starter Pack.

For each Authorized User accessing the Case Manager Starter Pack or Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On (collectively as Starter Pack), licensee must have the number of AUVU entitlements set forth in the IBM Case Manager Starter Pack or IBM Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On Authorized User Value Unit license conversion table that corresponds to the number of Authorized Users accessing the Starter Pack at any time. At no time may the number of Authorized Users accessing the Starter Pack or any component of the Starter Pack in any manner, directly or indirectly or through any other means, exceed licensee's entitlement to use the Starter Pack, as indicated on the applicable PoE.

In the event licensee reaches the maximum SP utilization level with respect to a given IBM Case Manager Starter Pack or IBM Case Manager Starter Pack Add-On, if licensee wishes to increase their entitlement to use the Starter Pack, licensee must contact an IBM representative or an IBM Business Partner to purchase a trade-up license at the then-current rates for such license. Additional charges, such as the cost of the additional licenses, will also apply.

Product pricing

Each product has a fixed price per UVU. Customers license the appropriate number of UVUs to provide access to a corresponding user population.

Cumulative volume discounting

As the user quantity increases, the number of UVUs increase albeit at a slower rate. Value Unit license conversion tables establish the required number of UVUs for a specified number of users. Volume discounting examples:

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM , including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

For clarification, note that 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. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Statement of good security practices

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.
