IBM Maximo Space Management for Facilities V7.1 provides visibility into floor plans and assets within a facility or campus. With functionality supporting moves, adds, and changes, and robust reporting capabilities, space planners can better understand and manage the utilized and available space within their organization. This is critical for supporting regulatory compliance, accurate internal chargebacks as well as susceptibility initiatives.
IBM Maximo Data Center Infrastructure Management V7.1 provides visibility into the physical infrastructure of the data center, including IT assets and other data center equipment. With the ability to support moves, adds and changes, while managing available rack space, servers can be optimally located for the best utilization of current power capacity.
With occupancy being an organization's second largest cost, and new increased employee mobility trends facilities managers are faced with an ongoing need to reduce costs around space and better utilize existing space. Similar challenges exist within the data center, where not only physical space, but the constraints of power must be taken into consideration.
Additionally, for both facilities and data center infrastructure management, the ability to inventory and trace cabling, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing infrastructure provides users with access to critical information during maintenance activities that will minimize impact and downtimes.

|IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing|
Processor Value Unit (PVU)
Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology and the number of processors made available to the Program, defined within the PVU Table by Processor Vendor, Brand, Type and Model Number at
IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.
Licensee can deploy the Program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the Program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
In addition to the entitlements required for the Program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this Program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the Program.
* An Activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.
Server is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (e.g., a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate Server. For the purpose of Server-based licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements for each Server which is made available to the Program, regardless of the number of processor cores and/or partitions in the Server or the number of copies of the Program on the Server.
In addition to the entitlements required for the Program directly, Licensee must obtain entitlements for this Program sufficient to cover the servers managed by the Program.
Standby or backup systems
For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other license or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.
As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes:
Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.
Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.
Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.
In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files, or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.
Passport Advantage for the distributed product
Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the Entitled Passport Advantage discount.
To determine the required IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the IBM Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.
Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:
- Analyze your environment to determine the number of charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine by that analysis.
- Order the Passport Advantage part numbers. A Passport Advantage point value, which is the same worldwide for a specific part number regardless of where the order is placed, is assigned to each IBM Tivoli product part number. The Passport Advantage point value for the applicable part number, multiplied by the quantity for that part number, will determine the Passport Advantage points for that IBM Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable IBM Tivoli product authorizations, which then may be aggregated with the point value of other applicable Passport Advantage product acquisitions to determine the total Passport Advantage points value.
The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.
Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.
For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following
The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:
- License and Software Subscription and Support 12 Months - This is the product authorization with Software Subscription and Support to the first anniversary date.
- Software Subscription and Support Annual Renewal - This is the Software Subscription and Support renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
- Software Subscription and Support Reinstatement 12 months - This is for customers who have allowed their Software Subscription and Support to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Subscription and Support.
- Media packs - These are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.
- Documentation packs - These contain printed documentation such as the User's Guide and Release Notes.
The following example is provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.
References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit-based, with the exception of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor will depend on the processor type. For more information, refer to the Value Unit definition in IBM Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required per processor, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site
References to all other non-processor-based metrics do represent the actual number of entitlements required, unless other designated measurements are referenced or unless otherwise specified.
The pricing example below should be used to determine required license entitlements for the following distributed products.
IBM Maximo Space Management for Facilities is licensed per authorized user. If a customer has 25 authorized users for IBM Maximo Space Management for Facilities in its IBM Maximo environment, the following licensing scheme applies
Quantity License in customer entitlements Pricing metric environment required Authorized Users 25 25
IBM Maximo Data Center Infrastructure Management is licensed per rack. If a customer has 400 racks in its data centers, the following licensing scheme applies:
