Overview
Bottom rule

IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services is a family of products that enables and connects other products in the SPSS family. It consists of the main platform for the management and deployment of analytical assets and provides extensive support as predictive models are prepared, validated, and integrated with operational systems to support decision making.

Collaboration refers to the ability to share and reuse analytic assets efficiently, and is the key to developing and implementing analytics across an enterprise. Analysts need a location in which to place files that should be made available to other analysts or business users. That location needs a version control implementation for the files to manage the evolution of the analysis. Security is required to control access to and modification of the files, and a backup and restore mechanism is needed to protect the business from losing these crucial assets.

To address these needs, SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services provides a repository for storing assets using an hierarchical folder metaphor similar to most file systems. Files stored in the repository are available to users throughout the enterprise, provided those users have the appropriate permissions for access. To assist users in finding assets, the repository offers a search facility.

The scoring service of SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services allows analytical results from deployed models to be delivered in real time when interacting with a customer. An analytical model configured for scoring can combine data collected from a current customer interaction with historical data to produce a score that determines the course of the interaction. The service itself can be leveraged by any client application, allowing the creation of custom interfaces for defining the process.

The deployment facilities of SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services are designed to easily integrate with your enterprise infrastructure. Single sign-on reduces the need to manually provide credentials at various stages of the process. Moreover, the system can be configured to be compliant with Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services makes it easy to deploy reliable analytical assets into key business processes so that people have the right information and can make smarter decisions.

Collaboration is the key to developing and implementing analytics across the enterprise. SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services makes it possible to share and reuse assets efficiently, protect them in ways that meet internal and external compliance requirements, and publish results so that a greater number of business users can view and interact with results. It allows users to:

  • Share analytical assets among analysts
    • Store assets in a central repository.
    • Make it easy to organize and search for content.
    • Enable reuse and standardization for effective analytical results.
  • Protect the business by storing analytical assets in a central location, controlling access and tracking changes
    • Use version control and object labels to ensure the right copies are being used in production processes.
    • Easily back up and restore all analytical assets in one step.
  • Exercise analytical power on demand, using information analysts have published from within their analytic tools
  • Easily run predefined analytics -- giving more people greater control over how they access and use analytics
  • Deploy these interfaces and processes to a web browser to enable users to generate analytical output on demand

Automation enables your organization to make analytics a core component of daily decision-making processes. You can construct flexible analytical processes that can be operationalized, ensuring consistent results. You also have the tools you need to govern analytical environments just as you manage other business processes. It allows users to:

  • Construct flexible, analytical processes that deliver consistent results
    • Use a visual interface to design complex analytical jobs that include multiple steps and tools.
    • Jobs can include logic to handle different scenarios and parameters, which gives users greater flexibility and control over analytical processes.
  • Operationalize the analytical processes by initiating jobs when they are needed
    • Run jobs on demand, at a scheduled time or when triggered by other events.
    • Integrate jobs with other processes.
    • Orchestrate complex jobs across multiple systems and applications through event notification.
  • Govern the environment in which the analytical processes occur, thereby increasing confidence in results
    • Evaluate models using a champion/challenger approach.
    • Automate model evaluation and refresh to ensure relevant results.
    • Allow rollback to a prior state, to protect valuable analytical assets.
    • Automatically notify people or other processes.
    • Build reports to monitor their success or failure.

Deployment bridges the gap between analytics and action by enabling organizations to operationalize analytics, embedding analytic results in front-line business processes. Linkage between SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services and other SPSS products like Decision Management supports the automation of recommendations and tactical decisions. Integration with your existing infrastructure, using standard programming tools and interfaces, makes combining these technologies efficient for IT to deploy and manage and also eases the learning curve for end users. Through its real-time scoring service, you can deliver analytical results as customer interactions are occurring. Real-time scoring is optimized in the moment and includes the ability to cache data and models and handle multiple sources of input data, including historical information and information gathered during real-time interactions. It allows users to:

  • Deliver analytical results as customer interactions are occurring through integration with business user systems
    • Record activity to enhance modeling effectiveness.
    • Combine real-time information gathered during the time of the interaction and historical data to determine the score.
  • Integrate with existing applications using standard programming interfaces, such as Web Services
  • Enterprise-ready to ensure scalability, reliability, and security
    • Integrate with existing authentication systems for single sign-on capabilities.
    • Provide support for application server clustering and virtualization for more effective use of resources.
    • Help ensure compliance with FIPS encryption standards.

SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services allow you to securely manage diverse analytical assets and foster greater collaboration among those developing and using them. Automate and integrate ongoing analytical processes for more reliable results, and ensure that the right people get the information they need to take timely, appropriate action.

Processor Value Unit

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 (defined within the PVU Table by Processor Value, Brand, Type, and Model Number at the following website and the number of processors made available to the program.

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. 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 cores1 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

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html
1
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.

Resource Value Unit

Resource Value Unit (RVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number of units of a specific resource used or managed by the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of RVUs required for Licensee's environment for the specific resources as specified in the table below. RVU entitlements are specific to the program and the type of resource and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program or resource.

Resource Value Unit (RVU) License Conversion Table

The RVU entitlements for this program are based on the number of web sessions to be managed in the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements to cover the maximum number of web sessions managed in the program in any consecutive 12-month period.

A web session is comprised of a series of page requests (that is, page views) from the same uniquely identified client device. A web session ends when the server terminates the connection to the uniquely identified client, or 60 minutes elapse between page views, whichever comes first.

The required number of RVUs is determined according to the following table:

      Minimum      Maximum       RVUs    
      Annual Web   Annual Web    per     Total
Tier  Sessions     Sessions      1M      RVUs
 
1             1    1,000,000    1,025    1025
2     1,000,001    5,000,000      270    2105
3     5,000,001   10,000,000      220    3205
4    10,000,001   50,000,000       35    4605
5  > 50,000,000                    25

User Value Unit

User Value Unit (UVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. UVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number and type of users for the given program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of UVUs required for Licensee's environment as specified in the table below. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and type of user and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another program or type of user.

User Value Unit (UVU) License Conversion Table

The required number of UVUs is determined according to the following table. Authorized Users counted to determine UVUs are defined above.

For 1-20 Authorized Users (AU) = 1.00000 UVUs 
>20-50 AU = 0.83333 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 20 AU 
>50-100 AU = 0.80000 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 50 AU 
>100-250 AU = 0.76666 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 100 AU 
>250-500 AU = 0.60000 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 250 AU 
>500-1,000 AU = 0.50000 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 500 AU 
>1,000-5000 AU = 0.47500 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 1,000 AU 
>5,000-10,000 AU = 0.40000 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 5.000 AU 
>10,000-25,000 AU = 0.36666 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 10,000 AU 
>25,000-10,000,000 AU = 0.33333 UVUs per Authorized User above the first 25,000 AU 

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Concurrent User is a person who is accessing the program at any particular point in time. Regardless of whether the person is simultaneously accessing the program multiple times, the person counts only as a single Concurrent User. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but Licensee must obtain entitlements for the maximum number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each simultaneous Concurrent User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Migration of SPSS Products

For current SPSS licensees, you will be contacted by IBM to migrate your SPSS 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 SPSS offering name and the replacement IBM offering name. You must be current on Subscription and Support (maintenance 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.

To view the migration table, select the Transition to IBM section at

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

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. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form number

L-JCOS-869LN7

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited 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. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found 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 Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support 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 clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

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

Yes. For information on usage restrictions, refer to the License Information document that is available for each product on the IBM Software License Agreement website

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 provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the applicable agreements.
