Overview
Bottom rule

To help teams meet business objectives with limited resources and tight deadlines, IBM Rational offerings deliver an automated, comprehensive, and collaborative quality management portfolio with IBM Rational Functional Tester, IBM Rational Performance Tester, and IBM Rational Service Tester for SOA Quality. As market conditions are increasingly forcing quicker time to market, innovative thinking, and competitive pricing, a collaborative and automated process-driven approach to quality can assist in lowering the risk of delivering incomplete and poorly performing application software systems. By simplifying the process of developing testing assets, teams can leverage the business process knowledge of nontechnical resources to participate in the quality planning, execution, and reporting analysis of the quality management life cycle.

The Quality Management V8.2 practitioner tools deliver capabilities to:

  • Mitigate business risk: Catch defects earlier and keep the team synchronized with dynamic process and activity-based workflows while targeting high-risk items through collaborative community risk ranking and assessment
  • Improve operational efficiency: Automate and simplify labor-intensive tasks by actively involving nontechnical project team resources to assist in the production, execution, and analysis reporting
  • Gain greater visibility: Make reliable decisions with constant access to prioritized metrics tailored for individuals and teams
  • Deliver greater predictability: Adopt successful deployment patterns and map to operational Key Performance Indicators

The cornerstone of the IBM Rational Quality Management portfolio is IBM Rational Quality Manager. Based on the open, extensible Jazz™ technology platform, IBM Rational Quality Manager delivers a Web-based centralized test management environment and provides out-of-the-box integrations to other IBM Rational Quality Management products including IBM Rational Test Lab Manager, IBM Rational Functional Tester, IBM Rational Performance Tester, and IBM Rational Service Tester for SOA Quality among others across the broader quality management delivery life cycle that includes IBM Rational RequisitPro and IBM Rational DOORS® offerings.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Install of the program.

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 athttp://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html) and the number of processors made available to the program. 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 http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* 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.

Notes

Some programs may require licenses for the program AND what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: 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.

Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis ONLY. In that case, the following applies: Instead of 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.

A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the Referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the Referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the Referenced program is licensed.

Express and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

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.

If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.
