Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Licensee must obtain Managed Client Device entitlements for every Client Device managed by the IBM SaaS during the measurement period specified in Customer's Proof of Entitlement (PoE) or Transaction Document.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the IBM SaaS can be obtained. Customer must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each unique Authorized User given access to the IBM SaaS in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. Sufficient entitlements must be obtained to cover the number of Authorized Users given access to the IBM SaaS during the measurement period specified in Customer's Proof of Entitlement (PoE) or Transaction Document.
