Additional information

Through its technology investments, IBM has built up a wealth of innovations that deliver unique value in the Messaging and Collaboration market. IBM Workplace Messaging customers have seen these benefits in areas that drive costs out of the messaging function and deliver the value of open systems.

As these innovations have narrowed the differences in usage scenarios, IBM is able to deliver broad value in a single offering, maximizing the power of the ecosystem of ISVs, Utility Providers, and IBM Business Partners.

As a result, IBM is removing Workplace Messaging from market and entitling existing customers to equivalent offerings from the IBM Lotus Domino® portfolio, as follows:

End of marketing: Effective January 11, 2007, IBM will withdraw from market the IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging Passport Advantage® offering. Customers who hold current licenses for this program will renew to the following:

  • One (1) IBM Lotus Domino Web Access license for each licensed Workplace Messaging user
  • One hundred (100) Value Units of IBM Lotus Domino Messaging Server for each one thousand (1000) Workplace Messaging users. 100 Value Units of Domino Messaging Server is equal to One CPU.

End of service: Effective September 30, 2008, IBM will withdraw from service the IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging Passport Advantage offering. Customers will no longer be able to receive support for this offering after that date.
