The integration team can collaborate on actionable information blueprints that connect the business vision with the corresponding technical metadata. Blueprint Director directs the team to apply best practices based on reference architectures and methodology

IBM InfoSphere Foundation Tools

IBM InfoSphere Business Glossary V8.5

IBM InfoSphere Business Glossary is an interactive, web-based tool that helps users create, manage, and share an enterprise vocabulary and classification system. The alignment of business terms with technical information assets facilitates business and IT communities to collaborate and govern their data more effectively. Also, the data stewardship capabilities of this tool can promote responsibility and accountability in support of data governance policies.

New features include:

  • Enhanced display of data analysis summaries from InfoSphere Information Analyzer and InfoSphere Discovery. This enables users to understand key data quality metrics for the information that is associated with a business term.
  • Ability to view valid value types and references for associated data sources.
  • Improved consumability of glossary content for business users through a new user role: Business Glossary Basic User. Users with this role view only Terms and Category information. No technical metadata information, such as Assigned Assets and Data Source Tree, is displayed.
  • Accelerated population of glossary content through a mechanism that transforms content from imported business intelligence reports into Business Glossary Categories and Terms.
  • Ability for data modelers to leverage up-to-date Business Glossary content in their modeling environment through enhanced integration with InfoSphere Data Architect, including the ability to interchange assigned relationships between the modeling client and the metadata repository.

IBM InfoSphere FastTrack V8.5

IBM InfoSphere FastTrack streamlines collaboration between business analysts, data modelers, and developers by capturing and defining business requirements in a common, familiar format and then transforming that business logic directly into DataStage ETL (extract, transform, and load) jobs.

New features include:

  • Shared data rules within mapping specifications to accelerate communication of and consistently apply information across projects.
  • An audit history for specification updates, tracking various InfoSphere FastTrack events (such as who made a change and what change was made). This capability is critical for governance programs that require an audit trail as part of historical documentation.
  • Capture of existing source-to-target relationships from DataStage jobs, which provides the ability to leverage existing job information to jump-start specification work. By utilizing knowledge already gained, this feature establishes a view into the lineage between those data sources and enables better consistency in collaborative work.
  • Support for interchange of mapping specifications across Information Server environments allows users to move information to the environment where it is needed.

IBM InfoSphere Information Analyzer V8.5

IBM InfoSphere Information Analyzer can help clients quickly and easily understand their data by offering data quality assessment, flexible data rules design and analysis, and quality monitoring capabilities. These insights can help clients derive more information from enterprise data to accelerate information-centric projects.

New features include:

  • Expanded collaboration between business and IT. Users now have an improved ability to link data sources directly to business terms in InfoSphere Information Analyzer and deliver broader understanding of data to business users through context-sensitive menu options, enhanced term browsers, and presentation of terms with standard data classifications.
  • Sharing of InfoSphere Information Analyzer's source analysis results through the InfoSphere Business Glossary. In addition to the existing summary results, users can now gain better understanding and insight into the valid values of source columns that are represented by business terms.
  • Export of InfoSphere Information Analyzer project information to other InfoSphere Information Server environments to optimize distribution of data analysis insights.
  • Invocation and update of InfoSphere Information Analyzer's data quality assessment and monitoring tasks via REST APIs.
  • Publication of InfoSphere Information Analyzer's data quality assessment and monitoring results to a standard file format for downstream utilization via command line (CLI) or REST APIs.
  • Support for Native Oracle connectivity in addition to existing ODBC and native DB2® and Teradata connectivity.
  • Methodology and best practice guide for designing data quality rules.
  • Information Analyzer Exception Manager, a bundled offering available on Microsoft® Windows® platforms. It integrates directly with InfoSphere Discovery so that discovered transformation rules across sources can be validated, reconciled, and monitored on an ongoing basis. It also incorporates a browser-based user interface for the data steward to review and report exception conditions.
  • Information Analyzer Exception Manager can analyze data in only the Latin 1 character sets, including the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, and Italian. While the software is available for sale in some countries that operate with double-byte character sets, the software does not currently work in double-byte languages. The software can still be purchased in these countries, but must only be used to analyze data in the languages noted above.
  • Availability of Information Analyzer Exception Manager on Linux® for System z® for production environments.

IBM InfoSphere Metadata Workbench V8.5

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.

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 (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 webpage 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.

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.
