What changes are being announced?

IBM® is converting the licensing model for IBM Sterling Order Management (all components) and the IBM Sterling Configure Price Quote Pricing and Quoting Add-ons for Order Management from the current metrics to normalized metrics called "Resource Value Units" (RVUs) or "User Value Units" (UVUs). See the "How is the licensing model changing" section for more details. In order to implement these changes, the existing component part numbers are being withdrawn from Passport Advantage® and new part numbers are being introduced. The IBM Sterling Order Management and the IBM Sterling Configure Price Quote product capabilities are not changing and will continue to be offered by IBM. This is only a licensing model change.

In addition, IBM is also announcing the withdrawal from Passport Advantage of a licensing bundle called IBM Sterling Always in Stock (AIS). AIS is a limited use bundle of IBM Sterling Order Management designed to support a specific use case to enable special orders originating in a retail store for items that are normally stocked in the store, but are out of stock. Updates to the IBM Sterling Order Management licensing model have rendered this bundle unnecessary, and therefore IBM is announcing the withdrawal of the IBM Sterling Always in Stock chargeable components. Customers who require this capability should license IBM Sterling Order Management, and any existing customers will be migrated to IBM Sterling Order Management licenses. Again, product capabilities are unchanged. This is only a licensing model change.

How is the licensing model changing?

IBM Sterling Order Management and the IBM Sterling Configure Price Quote Pricing and Quoting Add-ons for Order Management will continue to be measured and audited based on the existing million order lines, authorized user, and client device metrics. For the purpose of licensing, however, these metrics will be converted to RVUs or UVUs. RVUs and UVUs are normalized metrics that abstract other measurement metrics and provide a tiered scaling structure. The licensing unit of measure for each chargeable component will become RVU for components that are measured based on million order lines and client devices, and UVU for components that are measured based on authorized users. For each of the measurement metrics, an associated RVU or UVU table scales the quantity of RVUs or UVUs required based on the number of million order lines, authorized users, or client devices required. For example, in order to process 25 million order lines in a consecutive 12 month period, entitlements for 19 RVUs are required. Therefore, a quantity of 19 would be reflected in Passport Advantage for each appropriate chargeable component that requires entitlements for 25 million order lines. For details on the conversion process, refer to the "How does the RVU and UVU conversion work?" topic in the Replacement program information section.

The conversion process

How does the RVU and UVU conversion work?

The RVU and UVU scaling tables are step-tiered models, meaning that each quantity tier must be multiplied by the scaling factor for that tier, and the RVU or UVU quantities for each tier are added together to calculate the total RVU or UVU quantity. RVUs are used in the examples that follow, but the same process applies to UVUs. Using the 25 million order line example above, 25 million order lines converts to 19 RVUs as follows using the scaling table:

Apply a factor of 1.00 to the range
   from 1 to 2 Million Order Lines:     2 * 1.00 = 2
Apply a factor of 0.90 to the range
   from 3 to 5 Million Order Lines:     3 * 0.90 = 3
Apply a factor of 0.80 to the range
   from 6 to 10 Million Order Lines:    5 * 0.80 = 4
Apply a factor of 0.70 to the range
   from 11 to 20 Million Order Lines:  10 * 0.70 = 7
Apply a factor of 0.60 to the range
   from 21 to 35 Million Order Lines:   5 * 0.60 = 3
                                       -------------
Add the RVU quantities for each tier
   together to get the total number of RVUs:      19

All fractional RVU totals are rounded up to the next whole number. RVU quantities must be calculated separately for each chargeable component. A complete explanation of the scaling tables and conversion process for each chargeable component can be found in the license information documents listed in the Licensing information section. Your IBM representative can also provide additional assistance in understanding this conversion.

Will the number of million order lines, authorized users, and client devices to which I am entitled change?

No. Because the RVUs and UVUs are measured based on the existing measurement metrics, the number of million order lines, authorized users, and client devices to which you are entitled will not change.

When will the changes take effect?

Existing IBM Sterling Order Management and IBM Sterling Configure Price Quote clients with contracts in Passport Advantage will be migrated automatically to the RVU or UVU licensing metrics and will see these changes in Passport Advantage the day following the announcement. Passport Advantage will display only the RVUs or UVUs, not the number of million order lines, authorized users, or client devices to which the RVUs and UVUs convert. A complete explanation of the scaling tables and conversion process for each chargeable component can be found in the license information documents listed in the Licensing information section of this announcement. Your IBM representative can also provide additional assistance in understanding this conversion. For clients who have not yet migrated to Passport Advantage, there is no immediate impact.

I want to buy incremental entitlements? How would that work in the RVU and UVU models?

RVU and UVU calculations for each chargeable component are cumulative, so when a you buy incremental entitlements, the RVU calculations resume where you left off in the tier structure. The calculation of total entitlements required for each chargeable component is based on the combination of existing entitlements and new entitlements. Continuing with the previous example, the client who purchased 25 million order lines now wishes to increase their entitlements to 50 million order lines. The scaling table is applied as follows:

Apply a factor of 1.00 to the range
   from 1 to 2 Million Order Lines:      2 * 1.00 = 2
Apply a factor of 0.90 to the range
   from 3 to 5 Million Order Lines:      3 * 0.90 = 3
Apply a factor of 0.80 to the range
   from 6 to 10 Million Order Lines:     5 * 0.80 = 4
Apply a factor of 0.70 to the range
   from 11 to 20 Million Order Lines:   10 * 0.70 = 7
Apply a factor of 0.60 to the range
   from 21 to 35 Million Order Lines:   15 * 0.60 = 9
Apply a factor of 0.45 to the range
   from 36 to 50 Million Order Lines:   15 * 0.45 = 7
                                        -------------
Add the RVU quantities for each tier
   together to get the total number of RVUs:       32
Subtract the RVU quantities previously obtained:  -19
                                                  ---
Total number of additional RVUs to be purchased:   13

All fractional RVU totals are rounded up to the next whole number. RVU quantities must be calculated separately for each chargeable component. A complete explanation of the scaling tables and conversion process for each chargeable component can be found in the license information documents for IBM Sterling Order Management and IBM Sterling Configure Price Quote listed in the License information section. Your IBM representative can also provide additional assistance in understanding this conversion.

Value unit tables

The pricing for IBM Sterling Order Management is based on Resource Value Units or User Value Units. There are eight chargeable license components that may apply in any given installation. There are two applicable Value Unit Exhibits (VUEs). The following illustrates the eight license components and the VUE that applies to that license.
