DB2® Warehouse Manager V8.1 Enhancements
DB2 Warehouse Manager for z/OS delivers a complete warehouse solution to use with your DB2 for z/OS. This new offering brings together the tools to build, manage, and access DB2 data warehouses. It is based on proven technologies enhanced to offer additional function and to provide tighter integration among the components. Included in the DB2 Warehouse Manager for z/OS, V8.1 are:
Use DB2 Warehouse Manager for z/OS to simplify and speed your warehouse prototyping, development, and deployment to production. Integration with the Information Catalog enables you to satisfy user requirements for finding, understanding, and accessing the right data.
DB2 Universal Database Enterprise Server Edition V8.1: The data warehouse management infrastructure is delivered as elements of DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition V8.1. This copy of DB2 is included, with a restricted-use license, to permit delivery and utilization of the Workstation-based components of the DB2 Warehouse Manager for OS/390®.
Data Warehouse Center: The Data Warehouse Center gives you a graphical control facility, fully integrated with DB2 Control Center. Now you can more easily accomplish the diverse tasks of warehouse creation and management:
The Information Catalog: The Information Catalog helps end users to find, understand, and access information they need for making decisions. It populates the catalog through metadata interchange with the DB2 Warehouse Center.
z/OS Agent and Transformers: The warehouse agent for z/OS executes z/OS-based processes on behalf of the Data Warehouse Center. It permits data to be processed in your z/OS environment without the need to export it to an intermediate platform environment, allowing you to take full advantage of the power, security, reliability, and availability of DB2 and z/OS.
Warehouse transformers are stored procedures or user-defined functions that provide commonly used transformations for building data warehouses. These transformers provide complex transformations commonly used in warehouse development including:
These transformers augment the rich transformations available with SQL built-in functions including:
DB2 Warehouse Manager Sourcing Agent for z/OS
The DB2 Warehouse Manager Sourcing Agent for z/OS is designed for
customers who already have a non-z/OS Warehouse Manager package, and want
to use the z/OS agent against z/OS sources. The z/OS warehouse agent
will source data from z/OS and move it to a DB2 Intel®/UNIX® platform
warehouse. This eliminates the need to move data off the S/390® before
Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act
DB2 Warehouse Manager for z/OS, V8.1 and DB2 Warehouse Manager Sourcing
Agent for z/OS, V8.1 are capable as of December 27, 2002, when
used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the
applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act,
provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly
interoperates with it.
Value Unit Based Pricing
Value Unit based pricing will help to align the prices of these products to the principle of the PSLC pricing curve which provides for a lower price per millions of service units per hour (MSU) for larger capacities.
There is also be a price benefit when customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity will based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) the customer has already installed, for example, additional capacity will not be priced starting at the base with a higher price per unit but on the capacity that is already installed.
International Program License Agreement (IPLA) and Subscription and Support Considerations
IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.
Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

The products in this announcement have one charge unit Value Units.
Value Units for IBM 9672 Processors will be based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all S/390®-based systems that are measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the IBM System/370, System/390® and zSeries Machine Exhibit, Z125-3901.
Value Units for zSeries will be based upon full MSU capacity as defined in the Machine Exhibits.
There will be a tool available that provides support for transforming the MSU-based capacities of S/390 systems to new Value Units by calculating the applicable number of Value Units for a given number of MSUs.
Translation from MSUs to Value Units Example
MSUs Value Units/MSU Base 1-3 1.00 Tier A 4-45 .45 Tier B 46-175 .36 Tier C 176-315 .27 Tier D 316+ .20
Note: For the actual translation from MSUs to Value Units for this product, refer below.
If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:
Translation from MSUs to Value Units Value MSUs * Units/MSU = Value Units Base 3 * 1.00 = 3.00 Tier A 42 * .45 = 18.90 Tier B 130 * .36 = 46.80 Tier C 140 * .27 = 37.80 Tier D 1185 * .20 = 237.00 Total 1500 344
When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.
Feature Number 1 Value Unit 0001 250 Value Units 0002
Example: For a product running on machines with 1,500 MSUs requiring 344 Value Units, order feature number 0001, quantity 94 and feature number 0002, quantity 1.
Note: For actual feature numbers, refer below.
Value Units for non MSU-based S/390 Processors:
H30 = 6 Value Units H50 = 8 Value Units H70 = 12 Value Units P/390, R/390, IBM 3006 = 2 Value Units
Basic License: To order, specify the program number, feature number 9001 for asset registration, and the one-time charge (OTC) feature number. Also specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium. To suppress shipment of media, select the license-only option in CFSW.
