Overview
Bottom rule

IBM InfoSphere Discovery helps organizations accelerate deployment of information-centric projects such as data archiving, application retirement, data warehousing, data integration, or Master Data Management (MDM) and helps organizations address risk by better understanding data and its relationships across the enterprise. Using patented capabilities, InfoSphere Discovery identifies and documents what data you have, where it is located, and how it is related across systems by intelligently capturing relationships, applied transformations, and business rules. This process includes a full range of analysis capabilities, including:

  • Discovering hidden data relationships to define "business objects" (logical groupings of data)
  • Automating the detection of sensitive data
  • Prototyping data consolidation rules for new projects

For more information on InfoSphere Discovery, visit

Description
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Discovery is a ground-breaking, second-generation data profiling and transformation discovery component for use across disparate heterogeneous sources. InfoSphere Discovery V4.1.1:

  • Accelerates deployment of data-dependent projects while addressing risk and speeding time to value
  • Leverages declared relationships such as primary / foreign keys
  • Defines complete business objects that serve as essential inputs into data-centric projects
  • Includes Optim Database Relationship Analyzer V2.1 as a bundled component
  • Allows sharing and re-use of business objects between InfoSphere Discovery and Optim data management products
  • Offers automated transformation discovery using heuristics and sophisticated algorithms that automate an otherwise time-consuming manual process.

Optim Database Relationship Analyzer for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, V2.1 provides relationship data as a basis for consistent administrative management activities by:

  • Locating all of the parts of a business application.
  • Discovering many relationships and relationship types between tables, including the relationships that are hard to find and manage, such as monthly or year-end, dynamic, or transient applications.
  • Providing a starting point for determining what relationships exist in a database, where those relationships were not known or understood before.
  • Discovering and tracking the changes of application groups as they evolve over time.
  • Identifying relationship groupings to keep data relationally intact for archiving, recovering, and testing.
  • Providing the basis for understanding the impact of a table change as it relates to the other groups in which it participates.
  • Providing a client user interface that allows the user to manage and generate grouping information across multiple platforms from one client. The user interface also allows the user to manually enter table relationship information as needed.
  • Discovering table relationships. The types of relationships include those found in the database catalog, those found through unit-of-work analysis performed on database SQL trace information, and those found in user-provided relationship information.
  • Including a group validation feature that provides the ability to compare two groups of relationship information. This can be used to help ensure application changes are being made as expected.

Optim Database Relationship Analyzer for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, V2.1 builds on the Version 1.1 release by adding:

  • Simplified relationship discovery by providing an easier-to-use user interface with a focus on usability enhancements that include:
    • Getting started information geared toward the first-time user assisting the DBA or application owner
    • A structured step-by-step approach to defining Group Discovery options to discover and save table relationship information
    • An improved, flexible display of discovered relationships, allowing the DBA to more quickly and easily analyze information, helping to validate application implementation, application changes, or identify a business application that can be used for archiving or creating test data, or used in data privacy
  • Enhanced application relationship discovery to help the DBA or application owner identify those relationships not defined in the database catalog. The DBA can now see table relationship information at the column level when analyzing the SQL trace, packages, or triggers.
  • The foundation for integration with other offerings by using common base components that are integrated across Optim solutions and InfoSphere Data Architect.
  • Additional automation capability with a new service for the Version Compare function that allows DBAs or application owners to schedule regular Group Discovery and Compare jobs to validate whether their business application has or has not changed.

InfoSphere Discovery              5724-Y78     Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which these software products can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table1 by processor vendor, brand, type, and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:

  1. For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table1.
  2. The PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
  3. Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.

PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.

Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity1 terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated2 physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to, or managed by, the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
2
Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available for use in a server. They include processor cores:
  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
  • Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through virtualization technologies, operating system commands and BIOS settings.

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement for PVUs are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by Processor Vendor, Brand, Type, and Model Number) at

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

IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover every activated processor core3 in the environment which is made available to or is managed by the program. Unless the program is sub-capacity eligible and Licensee has deployed the program according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see Web site below), Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores3 in the physical hardware environment.

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/subcaplicensing.html
3
Activated processor cores are processor cores that are available for use in a physical or virtual server. When the program is not licensed and deployed under the Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms, the physical hardware environment includes all processor cores:
  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer or
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer; in each case, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor cores can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

The PVU entitlements required will be the sum of all the PVUs that would be required to cover all PVUs applicable to the activated processor cores in the environment that contains all the database servers which are made available to or managed by the program.

The following additional terms apply to InfoSphere Discovery V4.1.1:

The program includes the following JSON components, which may not be used for Evil purposes:

  • JSONArray.Java
  • JSONException.Java
  • JSONObject.Java
  • JSONStringer.Java
  • JSONTokener.Java
  • JSONWriter.Java

This program is bundled with the data server component of the editions of IBM DB2 specified in the "Supporting Programs" section of this License Information (the "Bundled DB2 Edition"), which is subject to the following limited use license.

Licensee is authorized to install the Bundled DB2 Edition only in association with the Licensee's authorized use of the program, and only for the storage and management of data used and generated by the program, and not for other data management purposes. The Bundled DB2 Edition is to be used only by the internal components of the program. The Bundled DB2 Edition may be used as a repository for configuration information generated by the program. Licensee may not use the Bundled DB2 Edition to build or extend custom applications that store business data. Licensee is not permitted to make inbound connections to the Bundled DB2 Edition database from other applications for queries or report generation.

As this program is only available for license on a Processor Value Unit charge metric, Licensee may install the Bundled DB2 Edition on a different machine from where Licensee has installed the program.

Licensee's use of the Bundled DB2 Edition may not exceed the maximum resource or other charge unit capacity for which Licensee is licensed to use the program under its Proof of Entitlement.

Licensee is authorized to use the Bundled DB2 Edition instances that Licensee is entitled to install and use as set out above only as primary servers handling user workload, and not as a secondary or backup server in a High Availability and Disaster Recovery (HADR) configuration. Licensee may use the HADR component on a second server in an Idle Standby configuration only if Licensee purchases 100 Processor Value Units for the Bundled DB2 Edition. Licensee should contact their IBM sales representative or IBM Business Partner. In an "Idle Standby" configuration, idle standby servers have DB2 installed, however, they do not service user transactions or query workloads. A DB2 server is considered idle if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios such as having a database in rollforward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a flash copy of a DB2 database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server, or in keeping a standby database synchronized using the HADR component.

Licensee is not authorized to install or use any separate features available for the fully licensed IBM DB2 edition unless Licensee acquires the fully licensed version.

If Licensee uses the program with a separately licensed IBM DB2 edition, the license terms of that edition apply, and not the terms of this limited use license.

For additional information, refer to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions.

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.
