Description
Bottom rule

IBM WebSphere Business Integration for Financial Networks for Multiplatforms Financial Transaction Manager V3.1 and IBM WebSphere Business Integration for Financial Networks for z/OS Financial Transaction Manager V3.1 contain the following industry software accelerators (specifications, standards, and physical code) that have been developed on top of the IBM industry leading WebSphere middleware software to enable a platform for payments processing.

Financial Transaction Manager is a service-oriented architecture (SOA) industry software package for the implementation of an integration layer on top of WebSphere Message Broker (an IBM Enterprise Service Bus) to manage, orchestrate, and monitor financial transactions. It provides the functionality to create and collect the state of transactions while providing integration capability as well as common data and message models based on an industry standard (ISO 20022).

Financial Transaction Manager includes the following core components:

  • A conceptual data model that supports the persistence of payment objects (files, batches, transactions, acknowledgements, and more), partner profile data, service, and channel definitions. It holds a rich repository of payment data stored from the ISO 20022 based Internal Standard Format (ISF), which provides rich views of payments from the Financial Transaction Manager user interface and for interrogation using the Transaction Processing Facility's MIS or other reporting products. This data model is delivered as a set of Entity Relationship Diagrams, Data Dictionary documents, and Data Definition Language (DDL) for DB2® on AIX® and DB2 on z/OS.
  • A standardized message model based on ISO 20022. This reduces the number of point-to-point interactions, which enables a more agile approach to introducing new services and promotes reuse of processes. It is delivered as XML schemas for use in WebSphere Message Broker.
  • An engine to manage transaction processing lifecycle in the form of a state machine for process flow execution. It is an event driven architecture and is driven by data derived from IBM Rational® Software Modeler. It is delivered as WebSphere Message Broker projects and also uses an Eclipse plug-in for IBM Rational Software Modeler to extract data to drive the state machine.
  • A configuration and administrative user interface to provide a view of the data model. It also supports appropriately authorized operations personnel interacting with the processing steps of a transaction (for example, resubmit a transaction). It is delivered as WebSphere Application Server Enterprise Archive (EAR) files.
  • Documentation for the development methodology, user interface, installation and setup, message model, data model, and sample application.
  • A sample application to demonstrate capability of the environment. It contains sample process to demonstrate the processing of individual payments (SWIFT MT 103) and batch payments (PAIN.001) in the Financial Transaction Manager environment. It shows how to go from functional requirements to high level design to implementation of these processes in Financial Transaction Manager. It is delivered as WebSphere Message Broker projects.

Benefits of Financial Transaction Manager:

  • Has real-time dashboards with necessary payments insights and proactive actions
  • Accelerates on-boarding new corporate customers
  • Provides the solution to processing large volumes of global disbursements and invoice presentments
  • Offers flexibility and control over volume of payments requests
  • Expands support for new payments schemes and types
  • Effectively manages cost associated with the modernization and adoption of updated payments schemes and types as they are introduced, such as SEPA Direct Debit, SEPA Credit Transfer, Same-day ACH, and more

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM System z® IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool website

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions for host products section.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

RVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) 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. Refer to the program specific Resource Value Unit table.

Note: Some programs may require licenses for the resources available to and the resources being managed by the program. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the resources used by the program directly, licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the resources managed by the program.

Note: Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the resources used by the program directly, licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the resources managed by the program.

This extension may be available for a fee.

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.
