Charge metrics definitions

The subject programs have a new structure for licensing and pricing designed for clarity, simplicity, and unity with other products in the IBM Enterprise Content Management portfolio. The former approach relied upon licensing servers and users -- with users licensed on a Named, Concurrent, e-business, Employee, and External basis. This has been replaced with a new approach based on Value Units (VUs), with a primary focus on user access.

Value Unit: Value Unit (VU) is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. VU entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement, either users or resources, for the given program. A proof of entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of VUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The VU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with VU entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of VU V licensing, and to determine how many VU Value Units to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

IBM FileNet Business Process Manager (FileNet BPM) is available in one the following User Value Units (UVU):

  • Authorized User Value Unit (AUVU): For selective licensing of users who are internal to the organization
  • Employee User Value Unit (EUVU): For collectively licensing all employees and agents who act on behalf of the organization
  • External User Value Unit (XUVU): For licensing of users who are external to the organization
  • Authorized User: An individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of the customer enterprise permitted to access the ECM software and components in any manner directly or indirectly through any means
  • Starter Pack User Value Unit (SP AUVU): For selective licensing of users who are internal to the organization per parameters set forth in the SP AUVU license conversion table and subject to additional restrictions

Employee User: All employees of the company/subsidiary must be licensed, even if only a subset of the employees are actual users. Agents and contractors acting on behalf of the customer count as employees. At all times, both the number of Employee UVU entitlements and the number of Add-On Employee UVU entitlements must meet or exceed the total employee head count of the customer enterprise. EUVU cannot be mixed with AUVU for the same product.

External User: External users are generally the customer's customers who will need infrequent, read-only access to the program. License may only be used by persons who are not employees, agents, or contractors of the customer affiliates or subsidiaries.

Add-On User License: Grants user access to incremental product capability in IBM FileNet Business Process Manager, given that user is already licensed for the appropriate base functionality (for example, IBM FileNet Content Manager, IBM FileNet Content Manager Starter Pack, IBM Content Manager, and IBM Content Manager Starter Pack).

Starter Pack User: The following restrictions apply:

  1. You may not use an IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack with a repository that at any time shares an object store and a configuration database with another repository.
  2. You may only use an IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack in conjunction with one (1) repository.
  3. You may use an IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On in conjunction with up to two repositories: IBM FileNet Content Manager, IBM FileNet Content Manager Starter Pack, IBM Content Manager, or IBM Content Manager Starter Pack.
  4. The maximum number of SP AUVUs that the licensee may use in conjunction with a given ECM Starter Pack, including IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack and IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On, at any time is 790 (the "Maximum BPMSP Utilization Level").

Trade-up License means an entitlement that enables a licensee to exchange a license of one IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack to a license of the IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Program product at a specific price; a licensee may exchange a license of one IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On to a license of the IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Add-On Program product at a specific price. Once a Trade-up License is obtained with respect to a given FileNet BPM Starter Pack or FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On, the IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Program license that the licensee receives replaces the licensee's original entitlement to the FileNet BPM Starter Pack or FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On and the licensee has no further right to use the Starter Pack.

For each Authorized User accessing the FileNet BPM Starter Pack or FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On (collectively as Starter Pack), licensee must have the number of AUVU entitlements set forth in the IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Starter Pack or IBM FileNet Business Process Manager Starter Pack Add-On Authorized User Value Unit License conversion table that corresponds to the number of Authorized Users accessing the Starter Pack at any time. At no time may the number of Authorized Users accessing the Starter Pack or any component of the Starter Pack in any manner, directly or indirectly or through any other means, exceed licensee's entitlement to use the Starter Pack, as indicated on the applicable PoE.

In the event licensee reaches the Maximum SP Utilization Level with respect to a given IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack or IBM FileNet BPM Starter Pack Add-On, if licensee wishes to increase their entitlement to use the Starter Pack, licensee must contact an IBM representative or an IBM Business Partner to purchase a Trade-up License at the then-current rates for such license. Additional charges, such as the cost of the additional licenses, will also apply.

Product pricing

Each product has a fixed price per UVU. Customers license the appropriate number of UVUs to provide access to a corresponding user population.

Cumulative volume discounting

As the user quantity increases, the number of UVUs increase albeit at a slower rate. Value Unit license conversion tables establish the required number of UVUs for a specified number of users. Volume discounting examples:

  • 100 authorized users require 85 AUVUs.
  • 1,000 authorized users require 600 AUVUs.
  • 5,000 authorized users require 2,500 AUVUs.

Content Manager configuration example:

  • Content Manager AUVU price = $Y per AUVU
  • 5,000 authorized users require 2,500 AUVUs
  • Total price = $Y x 2,500

Resource Value Units

Three types of Resource-based Value Units (RVUs) are available for licensing select products and options:

  • Pages Per Month Resource Value Units (PRVUs) are perpetual licenses to install and run the licensed program on one or more scanner stations or computer devices and to process up to a defined number of pages per calendar month.
  • Terabyte Resource Value Units (TRVUs) are perpetual licenses to store up to a defined number of terabytes of content on Image Services storage devices and supported P8 Fixed File Stores.
  • Processor Value Unit (PVU) licensing for Distributed software comprises perpetual licenses for each processor core on which the software is deployed. More information about PVU licensing can be found at this location
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_ for_customers.html

Although the subject programs are now offered under a new, streamlined licensing and pricing model, the function of the products has not changed from that of previously available offerings.

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.

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.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

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

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 version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your 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 Maintenance also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), 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

For clarification, note that 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 for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

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

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

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance)

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 (also referred to as Software Maintenance) 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 (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) 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, 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 (also referred to as Software Maintenance) 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.
