Overview
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Information Server Pack for Salesforce.com V1.5 is enhanced to support the demanding data volumes of information-driven businesses. By supporting Salesforce.com asynchronous bulk load application programming interface (API) for data loading, InfoSphere Information Server Pack for Salesforce.com V1.5 helps enable high-volume batch access and delivery of Salesforce data for repeatable, re-usable integration at lower development costs.

InfoSphere Change Data Delivery (CDD) V6.3.1 was previously released as a repackaging of InfoSphere Change Data Capture (CDC) V6.3. InfoSphere Change Data Delivery offers a discount as compared to the InfoSphere Change Data Capture product, but limits the usage to specific IBM products. InfoSphere Change Data Delivery V6.2 delivers CDD on the Series i platform, which was not released in V6.3.

InfoSphere Change Data Delivery V6.2 helps provide rapid and timely delivery of data changes for InfoSphere data warehouses, InfoSphere DataStage™ extract, load, and transform (ETL) processes, InfoSphere QualityStage™ data quality processes, and InfoSphere master data management systems to help ensure that these systems have updated and timely data to make good business decisions.

InfoSphere Change Data Delivery V6.2:

  • Enhances new and existing investments in InfoSphere DataStage, InfoSphere QualityStage, InfoSphere Warehouse, and InfoSphere Master Data Management Server
  • Integrates directly with InfoSphere DataStage, enabling real-time ETL processes and event-driven data cleansing
  • Helps ensure that critical information is readily available to lines of business, thereby increasing visibility and productivity

Description
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Information Server Pack for Salesforce.com V1.5

By supporting high-volume batch loads of Salesforce data, InfoSphere Information Server Pack for Salesforce.com V1.5 helps provide a timely and comprehensive view of both cloud and on-premise data that does not require manual coding and high development costs. Combined with the parallel processing capabilities and intuitive, re-usable data quality and data integration jobs from InfoSphere DataStage and InfoSphere QualityStage, Salesforce data can now be rapidly leveraged throughout the enterprise on an industrial scale whether it is for business analytics, loading a Master Data Management system, or as a data warehousing initiative.

InfoSphere Change Data Delivery V6.2

It helps deliver:

  • High performance: InfoSphere Change Data Delivery is designed to scale to high-volume replication environments with minimal performance impact on source databases. Using native log-based change data capture, it can handle increasing volumes of data to provide data integration at the pace of business.
  • Log-based change data capture: Whether data is integrated periodically or in real time, only changed data is captured and transferred from publisher to subscriber systems. Instead of performing queries directly against the database, InfoSphere Change Data Delivery captures changed data directly from the database logs.
  • Operational efficiency: InfoSphere Change Data Capture helps improve operational efficiency and save time and resources by eliminating redundant data transfer and saving network bandwidth. By accessing data from the logs, InfoSphere Change Data Delivery helps reduce performance impact on mission-critical applications.
  • Data integrity: Delivery of data is accomplished by synchronizing positional information between the source and target. Transactional integrity is achieved by applying transactions on the target in the same order as on the source.
  • Ease of use: An intuitive user interface helps lower total cost of ownership by consolidating configuration and monitoring of the replication environment.
  • Zero programming: With zero programming required, you can invest your effort in higher-value IT projects. Your company can leverage its legacy systems and integrate data across all supported platforms with few changes to the existing environment. Future changes in the computing environment can also be accommodated to protect your company's investment.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which this software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table* 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 table*.
  2. Add 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-capacity* terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated** 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.

* For information regarding PVU and sub-capacity licensing, including the latest PVU table, visit

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

** 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.
