Overview
Bottom rule

On January 30, 2008, IBM introduced a new family of products under the name of InfoSphere that enable organizations to transform information into a trusted asset for business. The InfoSphere product family name describes a new category of information middleware that integrates and transforms information into a trusted asset.

IBM InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 is a renaming of IBM DB2® Warehouse V9.5 for the purpose of bringing IBM's strategic data warehouse offering into this new family of information middleware. In addition, IBM InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 also brings new end-user analytics capabilities.

IBM InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 builds on the foundation of IBM DB2 Warehouse V9.5 and adds powerful new capabilities to deliver analytics to more business end users through first class and ubiquitous business intelligence (BI) tools. In today's high performance enterprises, more users require access to business intelligence as part of their day-to-day business activities. Decision makers at all levels of the organization need ready access to warehouse-driven business analytics delivered in an easily consumable form.

InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5 has already provided an enterprise-class platform for warehouse-based business analytics with pervasive and embedded delivery in the form of:

  • Cubing Services, the new OLAP provider for InfoSphere Warehouse
  • Advanced data mining analytics
  • Text analytics
  • Embedded analytics delivery with IBM Alphablox

As a further extension of the data warehouse platform, IBM InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 adds the OLE DB for OLAP interface for Cubing Services OLAP cubes. The OLE DB for OLAP interface enables common desktop tools such as Microsoft® Excel and market leading BI tools to access Cubing Services cubes. This puts more analytics into the hands of more end users, delivered within the BI tool of their choice.

To introduce enterprises to the query and reporting capabilities of Cognos, InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 also includes the Cognos 8 BI Starter Edition. This limited edition of the powerful Cognos 8 BI platform provides a starting foundation for end users to perform business queries and reports against the data warehouse information assets.

For full details about DB2 Warehouse V9.5, refer to Software Announcement 207-257, dated October 16, 2007.

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.

Product positioning
Bottom rule

As part of the broader IBM InfoSphere product family initiative, IBM InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 is positioned as the data warehouse information middleware for the enterprise.

The offering is targeted at information technology in larger organizations plus Business Partners who serve both IT and line of businesses that plan and implement data warehouse systems for operations or analytics. InfoSphere Warehouse provides data warehousing software to transform data into trusted strategic information that can be leveraged as an enterprise-wide asset. It also provides a unified information platform to integrate, manage, and analyze data and content, regardless of the type, volume. or complexity, and deliver it in context to users, applications, and business processes. This supports a single version of the "truth" that is actionable for everything related to customers, products, accounts, or any other information domain. InfoSphere Warehouse products have the capability to manage the complete lifecycle of the data warehouse. InfoSphere Warehouse provides the tools for information to become a complete, up-to-date, instantly accessible strategic asset that can make the business more competitive and successful.

The Cognos 8 BI Starter Edition is targeted for enterprise customers and is therefore included only in the Base and Enterprise editions of InfoSphere Warehouse, at no additional charge or price increase. This starter edition provides basic business query and reporting capability (not advanced analytics) to only five named users, thus seeding the enterprise with introductory enterprise reporting. You can build on this initial foundation by upgrading to the full Cognos 8 BI platform, which you can acquire from your Cognos representative.

The positioning of InfoSphere Warehouse V9.5.1 editions, including details on the positioning and target customer audience for each edition, can be found in Software Announcement 207-257, dated October 16, 2007.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users or resources which may include servers, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Processor Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Processor Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Processor Value Unit table on the following Web site

http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/ wdocs/pvu_table_for_customers

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Processor Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Processor Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

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.

Sub-capacity for selected middleware products

Sub-capacity licensing on a per processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli License Compliance Manager within their offerings so that you can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on the use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a primary business contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements, and reporting, refer to Software Announcement 205-093, dated April 19, 2005.

If you order this product under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online. (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process.) You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/guides/handbook.html

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.
Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
