Description

IBM Workplace dashboards are standards-based, active dashboards that contain prebuilt portlets that display best-practice Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Unlike traditional dashboards that display the same static information to all users, IBM Workplace dashboards are composite applications that display highly customized and dynamic data, giving decision makers the real-time visibility they need to drive results. In addition, IBM Workplace dashboards tie metrics to the underlying business processes, empowering users to take immediate and effective action based on changes in thresholds or important business events. Through these capabilities, IBM Workplace dashboards help executives and managers to proactively monitor business performance, make more informed decisions and quickly resolve business issues.

IBM currently offers two Workplace dashboards: IBM Workplace Dashboard for Sales and IBM Workplace Dashboard for Executives.

IBM Workplace dashboards and IBM Workplace Dashboard Framework complement the IBM WebSphere Portal, IBM Lotus® Domino®, and IBM Workplace software product family whose goal is to bring people, processes, and technologies together to provide greater business value to you. By helping you more easily and efficiently integrate your business systems, Workplace, Portal and Collaboration Software is fulfilling a critical part of IBM On Demand Business strategy.

Specifically, Workplace Dashboard Framework and Workplace dashboards are an important part of Workplace, Portal, and Collaboration software's strategy to deliver portal-based composite products that addresses specific business needs. In addition, Workplace Dashboard Framework and Workplace dashboards play an important role in the IBM commitment to service-oriented architecture (SOA).

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for Program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given Program. Each Program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select Programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for Your specific implementation of the given Program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the Program. You must obtain a proof of entitlement (POE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for Your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given Program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another Program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor (commonly called a "CPU" or "core") is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multi-core technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

With full capacity licensing, a proof of entitlement (POE) must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processors on the server available to the Program or a component of the Program.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This Program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the Program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing Program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three 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, releases, and versions of the program. Customers 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: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available on the IBM eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
