Overview

Because data does not exist in a vacuum, it is meant to be consumed and transformed in various ways. Software applications consume data. But applications are generally designed using one type of tool, while databases are designed using another.

The IBM Rational® Data and Application Modeling Bundle V7.0 conveniently packages IBM Rational Data Architect V7 and IBM Rational Software Modeler V7 into one offering. Users have the option of running each tool independently or installing and using them as part of a fully integrated environment.

The package gives modelers, who are responsible for data and application models, a holistic view of their architecture in a single, shared environment and a convenient way to acquire all of the visual modeling capabilities they need.

Also announced is IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform (SDP), desktop products V7.0. (Refer to 206-311 This release follows the June release of the IBM Rational SDP, team products, V7.0. (Refer to 206-131 Together, they provide a comprehensive end-to-end life-cycle management capability to help customers enable better governance.

A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

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. You 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 (PoE). It is your 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.

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Floating User

You may utilize the program, including installation of the program on multiple servers, provided that use of the program occurs via a license server, and the total number of concurrent users does not exceed the total number of Floating User licenses obtained for the Program.
