Overview
Bottom rule

The packaging of its industry-leading Cognos Financial Performance Management software is enhanced and now offers it to customers via IBM® Passport Advantage® program. Passport Advantage (PPA) is a simple, comprehensive loyalty program that provides software-license acquisition and renewable Software Subscription and Support (product updates and technical support) using a common set of processes and tools. For information about these programs visit the IBM Passport Advantage Web site

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

IBM Cognos Financial Performance Management software helps improve your performance through:

  • Planning and budgeting in real-time with dynamic plans that provide real-time feedback to everyone who is part of the process
  • Securing a single, accurate view of key information by consolidating multiple diverse ledgers into a single, common chart-of-accounts structure
  • Making adjustments as necessary with flexible plans and rolling forecasts that let you realign as events occur rather than dealing with annual budgets that are out of date as soon as they're printed
  • Engaging all necessary participants with inclusive plans that improve buy-in, rather than the pain of multiple, unlinked spreadsheets
  • Communicating plans enterprise-wide and with external partners, as necessary, to keep everyone on the same page
  • Offering a complete range of software to let you create plans, forecasts and budgets, and consolidate and report on finances

New licensing structure

With this announcement, the Cognos Financial Performance Management software has a new structure for licensing and packaging, designed for clarity and simplicity, while offering the flexibility to configure your systems to best support your business objectives.

For complete licensing and packaging details, visit

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf

If you purchased Software Subscription and Support for heritage Cognos software, you can renew your entitlements based upon the announced programs. Although the programs are now offered under a new, streamlined licensing and packaging model, the function of the software has not changed from that of previously available offerings.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: YE001).

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) can be requested via the IBM Web site

http://www.ibm.com/able/product_accessibility/index.html

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

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/ valueunitcalculator/vucalc.wss

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Migration of Cognos Products

For current Cognos licensees, you will be contacted by IBM to migrate your Cognos use entitlements into the IBM systems for the same or replacement product. This contact will happen at your next support renewal cycle. The table available through the attached link shows the Cognos offering name and the replacement IBM offering name. Your must be current on Subscription and Support to be eligible for migrations. If you are not current, you will have to pay the Subscription and Support reinstatement pricing in the Passport Advantage ordering system.

The migration is for the same capacity as currently licensed when converted to the metric announced for the replacement offering. Initial migration quotes will be generated using estimated calculations, though customers will be migrated to ensure that they are entitled to use the software to the same extent that they are currently licensed by adjusting the IBM quantities where required.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

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://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

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.
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.
