Overview
Bottom rule

IBM InfoSphere Information Server and InfoSphere QualityStage product modules can help your organization derive more value from the complex, heterogeneous information spread across your systems. The effectiveness of this information depends on the quality of data driving the systems and business processes of enterprises. Organizations are unable to remain competitive without having accurate, concise information to drive decisions and interact with customers and business partners. The concept of trusted information makes a comprehensive approach to data quality necessary.

This offering includes:

  • WebSphere® QualityStage Module for U.S. Address Certification V7.8 (available for purchase only in the U.S. and its territories). Note that this module retains the WebSphere branding of Version 7 of QualityStage.
  • Other information integration products that support Linux® for System z®, including IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender for DataStage™ V8.2 (available for purchase in the U.S. and in all other geographies).

The WebSphere QualityStage Module for U.S. Address Certification V7.8 provides USPS-certified address verification and enhancement for U.S. addresses and is applicable to the U.S. geography only. This module helps verify the completeness, consistency, and validity of U.S. address information in corporate databases, allowing businesses to certify U.S. addresses as "deliverable" and thus eligible for USPS discounts.

Also, new USPS regulations call for charging extra fees to businesses that mail undeliverable letters. Businesses that generate significant direct mail can use the WebSphere QualityStage Module for U.S. Address Certification V7.8 to help avoid penalties for undeliverable mail and to qualify for postal discounts.

IBM InfoSphere QualityStage modules outside this offering are also available to help businesses standardize, verify, correct, and enhance international address information.

For detailed information regarding the specific functions these modules provide to users of IBM InfoSphere QualityStage, refer to Software Announcement 207-097, dated May 08, 2007.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.
