Description
Bottom rule

IBM FileNet Content Manager V5.0 provides many new features designed to enable you to increase the efficiency and effectiveness with which you can manage your unstructured enterprise content. The features include new search capabilities, extended support for office document services via Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) support, and new "move content" capability for Content Federation Services (CFS). Also, new licensing and component bundling options further improve the overall value proposition of FileNet Content Manager V5.0.

  • CMIS support:
    • CMIS standard is a uniform means for applications to work with content repositories. The CMIS standard is an element of the IBM Business Content Services integrated approach to manage and control content created by shared workgroups across your organization. IBM participation in CMIS development drives better interoperability between Enterprise Content Management (ECM) products regardless of vendor and helps provide clients with more choice and lower costs when it comes to basic ECM needs.
    • The CMIS standard opens new possibilities for business partners and systems integrators to easily and effectively integrate Lotus® and IBM ECM products.
    • CMIS makes it easier to integrate IBM ECM products into existing installations of Microsoft® SharePoint, SAP, and other participating vendors.
    • CMIS does not replace the extensive API capabilities of IBM ECM portfolio products.
  • IBM Content Search Services:
    • Two content search solutions will be bundles in IBM FileNet Content Manager V5.0 -- the same one available in prior releases, based on third-party technologies, and now the new IBM-developed alternative, called IBM Content Search Services.
      1. IBM Legacy Content Search Engine - This is the search engine that has been in FileNet Content Manager for the past several releases.
      2. IBM Content Search Services - This is a new search engine being made available for the first time in FileNet Content Manager V5.0 and provides an alternative search solution.
    • Both search solutions offer similar functionality, but differ with respect to operating system support, as indicated in this table:
Search function                                           IBM     IBM
                                                          Legacy  Content
                                                          Content Search
                                                          Engine  Services
                                                          
A single search can span multiple object stores in        Y       Y
 different databases.
Workplace users can search for documents, folders, and    Y       Y
 custom objects. Searches can be designed to specify
 multiple folders, including a common folder name used in
 multiple object stores.
Content-based searching, using IBM FileNet P8 Content     Y       Y
 Search Engine, supports extensive content search
 capabilities that account for misspelled words,
 typographical errors, phonetic searching, word stem
 searching, synonym expansion, and wildcard searching.
Content searches return matches on properties and         Y       Y
 content.
Search results can optionally be displayed in a           Y       Y
 "document summary" format, which includes a brief text
 summary extracted from result documents.
Search results can be ranked by relevancy.                Y       Y
Searching makes use of multilingual features.             Y       Y
Bulk operations can be performed on search results in     Y       Y
 Enterprise Manager, where the operations can be
 scripted, or selected from a set of predefined
 operations such as delete, cancel checkout, file,
 unfile, and change security.
Searches can be created and stored for easy execution of  Y       Y
 common queries.
Search templates provide a simple user interface for      Y       Y
 entering search criteria.
Shortcuts to searches can be saved so it is easy to find  Y       Y
 them later.
Searches can be expanded to retrieve documents, folders,  Y       Y
 and custom objects in the same search specification.

  • CFS "move content":
    • CFS "move content" enhances P8 federation capabilities for Documentum, Open Text, Content Services, and IBM Content Manager to allow you to move federated content from the source repository to native P8 storage. Federated documents can be moved in small or large numbers depending on whether a customer's goal is individual application transition or repository consolidation.
    • Documents are federated to P8 first. This allows existing solutions on the source repository to continue undisrupted while allowing new applications and roles to leverage P8 capabilities.
    • When the business is ready and all users of the documents have transitioned to P8, the rules and scheduling capabilities of "move content" are used to permanently relocate them.
  • DB2 available as non-chargeable component:
    • DB2 Workgroup Server Edition V9.7 and DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V9.7 offer significantly increased data protection, scalability, and performance for all database intensive operations which, based on DB2 technology, are designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently. Greater availability is delivered through enhancements such as online, automated database reorganization. In addition, the increased scalability and the ability to leverage the latest in server technology help deliver increased performance of backup and recovery processes.
    • IBM FileNet Content Manager V5.0 now includes non-chargeable, bundled versions of:
      • DB2 Workgroup Edition V9.7 - For customers who want DB2 V9.7 on 32-bit Linux®.
      • DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V9.7 - For customers who want the latest DB2 release and whose application requirements exceed the 4 GB memory constraint associated with DB2 Workgroup Edition V9.5. Note: Does not support 32-bit Linux.
    • A side-by-side comparison (available at the website below) is designed to make it easier for you to determine which of the DB2 editions and packages is right for you. If a feature is not listed in the table, you can assume (for the most part) that the feature exists in all editions included in the table.
      http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/data/library/techarticle/0301zikopoulos/0301zikopoulos1.html#section1
  • WebSphere Application Server available as non-chargeable component:
    • WebSphere Application Server V7.0
  • Improved consumability:
    • Increased number of document properties possible for FileNet P8 when using DB2
    • Support for alternative LDAP attribute as the content engine security identifier
    • Componentized documentation that enables each section to be refreshed independently
  • Extended platform support:
    • This feature adds native support for the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) version 3.x as a Content Manager Fixed Content Device. This includes support for HCP WORM, retention, and data shredding features.
  • Bundling in IBM FileNet Image Manager Active Edition:
    • IBM FileNet Image Manager Active Edition is an offering which is comprised of IBM FileNet Image Services and IBM FileNet Content Manager. FileNet Image Manager Active Edition enables existing Image Services users to broaden the functionality of their solution to include additional content types and business processes supported by FileNet Content Manager. With FileNet Image Manager Active Edition, Image Services users can share content from an existing Image Services repository with content stored in Content Manager repositories. FileNet Image Manager Active Edition users can then take advantage of various user interface solutions for Content Manager, add Business Process Manager capabilities as needed, and leverage existing Content Manager content management solutions.

Feature deprecation and removal announcements:

  • Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) support is being removed because Microsoft has dropped support for it.
    • For APIs, your applications must be changed to Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM) web addresses. MTOM is a mechanism for transmitting large binary attachments with SOAP messages as raw bytes, allowing for smaller messages.
    • DIME and MTOM are mechanisms for transmitting large binary attachments with SOAP messages as raw bytes, allowing for smaller messages and more efficient transfer for ECM applications.
  • Content Engine Web Services (CEWS) removing support for DIME attachments.
    • CEWS API is an industry standards-conformant SOAP interface to the IBM FileNet P8 Content Engine. Customers with applications using the CEWS APIs, which have previously been leveraging DIME for the attachment encoding methodology, are affected by this change. Deprecated since V4.5.0, DIME is no longer supported in V5.0. Usage of DIME must be replaced by using MTOM as the attachment encoding format.
  • Deprecation of the 3.x Java™ Compatibility API
    • 4.x APIs can enable significant performance and functional benefits. Also, the 3.x Java Compatibility API is still in FileNet Content Manager V5.0.
  • Deprecation of the 3.x COM Compatibility API
    • 4.x APIs can enable significant performance and functional benefits. Also, the 3.x COM Compatibility API is still in FileNet Content Manager V5.0.
  • Deprecation of select unused exception codes
    • These exception codes are no longer valid.

IBM FileNet Rendition Engine V5.0:

  • FileNet Rendition Engine transforms documents into other formats, such as PDF and HTML. It integrates with Content Engine Publishing when rendering documents into other formats.
    • Reliability: FileNet Rendition Engine utilizes fourth generation rendering technology.
    • Scalability: FileNet Rendition Engine scales to handle enterprise-scale rendering requirements.
    • Performance: FileNet Rendition Engine is optimized for high throughput.
    • Integration: FileNet Rendition Engine is tightly integrated with FileNet Content Manager.
    • Administration: FileNet Rendition Engine is easy to administer.
    • Input formats: FileNet Rendition Engine supports leading input formats required by enterprises today, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Bentley View, and CambridgeSoft Chemdraw.
    • Output formats: FileNet Rendition Engine supports leading output formats required by enterprises today, including PDF and HTML.

Charge metrics definitions

User Value Unit (UVU)

UVU is the metric by which this program is licensed. UVU entitlements are based on the number of users for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of UVUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another software program. UVU licensing offers price benefits for customers by enabling a lower cost of incremental growth of resources. To understand these benefits of UVU licensing, and to determine how many UVUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users or resources which may include servers, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a value unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

At all times, the number of users accessing the program or any component of the program in any manner, directly or indirectly (for instance, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) or through any other means must not exceed your entitlement to use the program, as indicated on the applicable PoEs.

Authorized (AUVU): For selectively licensing internal users within your organization. The number of AUVUs you require is based on the number of authorized users within your organization that may access the program and/or whose user content may be analyzed using the program in any manner at set forth in the AUVU license conversion table.

External (XUVU): For licensing users who are external to your organization whose user content is analyzed using the program. The number of XUVUs you require is based on the number of external users whose user content may be analyzed using the program in any manner as set forth in the XUVU license conversion table.

Employee (EUVU): For collectively licensing all of your internal users. The number of EUVUs you require will be based on the number of employees in your Enterprise as set forth in the EUVU license conversion table.

Enterprise: An enterprise includes any legal entity that, by more than 50%, owns, is owned by, or is under common ownership with the licensee. The licensee is the legal entity that is authorized to execute and administer this agreement on behalf of an enterprise. The licensee need not be a company and may be the entire enterprise.

Licensing support for Infrequent Users: Infrequent User means an Authorized User who accesses the program not more than 120 times in any consecutive 12 month period. A single access is comprised of one or more interactions between the Authorized User and the program or actions performed on behalf of the Authorized User by the program, all within a consecutive 15 minute period.

On the condition that licensee creates a mechanism to track accesses by Authorized Users to verify that they meet the requirements of Infrequent Users, Infrequent Users need not be counted as full Authorized Users. A ratio of 10 Infrequent Users will equal 1 Authorized User for the purpose of calculating AUVUs. Programs eligible to use the Infrequent User ratio in calculating required Authorized UVUs are IBM FileNet Content Manager Authorized and IBM FileNet Content Manager Starter Pack Authorized.

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A PoE must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

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.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
