For software offerings:
This program is EuroReady.
For more information on the implications of the euro, visit the IBM euro Web site at:
IBM considers an IBM product to be EuroReady if the product, when used in accordance with its associated documentation, is capable of correctly processing monetary data in the euro denomination and of respecting the euro currency formatting conventions (including the euro sign). This assumes that all other products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) that are used with this product are also EuroReady. IBM hardware products that are EuroReady may or may not have an engraved euro sign key on their keyboards.
Currently, EuroReady status applies primarily to IBM products specific to the EMU countries. Products that are not specific to these countries are deemed to be "not ready" for euro unless otherwise stated in the product's country-specific specifications.
IBM Hardware Ready
IBM supplies certain IBM products which include third-party software (pre-loaded or not) and / or third-party attached hardware. In these instances, IBM is not in a position to assert that these third-party products are, in themselves, EuroReady.
Therefore, such IBM products will be designated as Hardware ready.
IBM considers a solution to be EuroReady when the solution providers have:
The euro capabilities of a EuroReady solution will be clearly identified as features of the solution specification, as described in the contracts document.
