Overview

IBM Information Server Pack for SAP R/3 V6.0 and IBM Information Server Pack for PeopleSoft Enterprise V3.2 are new releases of IBM WebSphere® DataStage® Pack for SAP R/3 V5.3 and IBM WebSphere DataStage Pack for PeopleSoft Enterprise V3.1. These packs provide seamless connectivity for enterprise applications between the most widely used enterprise applications and IBM Information Server. This combination brings together disparate source systems, legacy systems, enterprise applications, and business intelligence/analytic tools, thereby enhancing the speed and effectiveness of business analysis.

IBM Information Server Packs enable enterprise applications to benefit from the robust capabilities of IBM Information Server for data quality and data transformation.

This family of IBM Information Server Packs provides the following key benefits:

  • Faster deployment and reduced enterprise data integration costs
  • Rapid, automated integration of enterprise data and metadata
  • Aggregate view of the business for improved decision support
  • Better return on investment from existing enterprise applications
  • Improved reporting and analysis

Additionally, there is a change in license terms associated with IBM WebSphere DataStage and IBM WebSphere QualityStage. Customers are now authorized to deploy this software on servers on which DB2® is installed without incurring additional charges, as long as they have separately licensed and installed IBM WebSphere DataStage and IBM WebSphere QualityStage. The use of WebSphere DataStage and WebSphere QualityStage on DB2 servers is limited to use in support of reading and parallel loading of DB2 tables and not for additional DataStage-specific processing tasks. The same change is also valid on the respective non-production versions.

Description

IBM Information Server Pack for SAP R/3 V6.0 supports three SAP interfaces:

  • Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP)
  • Intermediate Document (IDoc)
  • Business API (BAPI)

These interfaces provide maximum flexibility and choice for extracting or loading data and using the correct method to handle the volume of data you need to manage.

Features of the Pack include an ability to:

  • Generate native SAP ABAP extraction code
  • Retrieve IDoc metadata
  • Automatically translate the IDoc into IBM Information Server for extraction/loading
  • Retrieve and execute BAPI calls from IBM Information Server jobs

The Pack is certified by SAP.

IBM Information Server Pack for PeopleSoft Enterprise V3.2 facilitates selecting and importing PeopleSoft metadata into IBM Information Server where it can be managed along with other enterprise information. The Pack enables organizations to rapidly extract vast amounts of data from PeopleSoft application tables and trees.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template can be requested at

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 economical 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.

Product positioning

The IBM Information Server Packs, with extract capability, allow developers to quickly and easily access data in complex enterprise applications so it can be extracted for use in a target system, such as for data warehouse and datamart development.

The Packs, with load capability, allow developers to quickly and easily populate the target enterprise application with data from other heterogeneous sources, and are useful for application migration, consolidation, and new enterprise application deployment.

The Packs are add-on options to IBM Information Server and are licensed separately depending on client requirements.

Trademarks

 
DataStage, WebSphere, and DB2 are registered trademarks of International Business Machines Corporation in the United States or other countries or both.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A PoE must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processors and partitions in the server on which the program runs or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.
