Description

IBM WebSphere Portal software, the world's leading enterprise portal technology and the foundation product for the IBM Portal Pack for SOA Configurations, enables employees to access business applications via the Web through a secure, user-friendly interface. To speed development, IBM WebSphere Portlet Factory software automates the generation of both the user interface (UI) and underlying application and process layers. Plus, it allows you to develop all the necessary components to make it easier to develop and manage composite applications within an SOA environment.

Traditionally, developing portlets, Web services, and composite applications required specialized expertise in both application development and portal technology. However, over the last couple of years, the portal development community has spearheaded a new development approach that separates the UI from the underlying applications and business processes. This approach, known as a service-oriented architecture, enables businesses to become more agile by breaking up business processes into reusable application components or services that are independent of the applications and computing platforms on which they run. That is, it provides a means to get incremental value from existing systems by extending access to those assets in new applications — and to more users — without changing those existing systems. WebSphere Portlet Factory is included with WebSphere Portal and provides Web application developers the necessary tools to quickly create component-based SOA composite applications.

The combination of WebSphere Portal, which includes WebSphere Portlet Factory, with Lotus ActiveInsight and Lotus Forms provides a unique capability to quickly provide new business value through the creation of efficient composite applications that are intuitive and incisive.

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.

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

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.

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.
