IBM Application Manager for Smart Business

IBM Application Manager for Smart Business V1.2.1 provides a competitively priced, highly consumable, rapid deployment entry into the Tivoli software family of application performance management solutions, which includes IBM Tivoli Monitoring, Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Applications, Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Applications for Microsoft Applications, and OMEGAMON® solutions. Built on the same DNA as those offerings, and featuring many of their application agents, the appliance's turnkey delivery shelters users from the complexity that can result from a traditional deployment of these powerful, highly customizable tools. Right sized for most mid-market IT operations, the appliance offers the rapid time-to-value proposition of lighter management solutions, combined with the depth and breadth of an enterprise-class management solution featuring an industry-leading pedigree.

IBM Service Manager for Smart Business

Small-sized and medium-sized organizations are focused on running the business and do not have abundant resources to manage requests from both internal employees and external customers. As technology becomes increasingly more complex, problem resolution becomes more time consuming, skill requirements increase, and costs to maintain quality services escalate. In the face of tighter budgets and fewer resources, prioritization, responsiveness, and standardized well-defined processes are the keys to maximizing the availability of business-critical IT services.

Many smaller and growing medium-sized organizations do not currently own an effective service desk solution. Spreadsheets and open source alternatives are used to allocate and record incident numbers. Automation is precarious and centralized record keeping is not common. These organizations suffer from tedious and error prone processes that jeopardize the provisioning of effective service support to their clients.

IBM Service Manager for Smart Business is the service desk solution designed and priced specifically for smaller and medium sized organizations. It provides focused service desk capabilities through Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) V3.0 aligned service request, incident, problem, and change management processes. It encompasses a broad variety of features that enable a single point of contact to automate service request, incident, problem, and change management. The offering includes predefined features that have been found key to growing needs of small and medium sized organizations. Equally important, it is easy to install, configure and, deploy.

IBM Application Manager for Smart Business is designed for the following:

  • Monitoring the performance and availability of a mid-sized (up to 150 servers) IT infrastructure
  • Monitoring the health and availability of mission-critical applications running on the IT infrastructure
  • Automatically responding to service interruptions to restore application availability quickly, and sometimes without an IT administrator in attendance
  • Minimizing application downtime, enhance application performance, and prevent outages from occurring
  • Producing intuitive reports on IT performance for a wide range of stakeholders
  • Tracking historical trends in IT performance, for capacity planning and other disciplines
  • Deploying an IT management solution that can be working, by a single operator, in hours, instead of days or weeks
  • Including an extensible framework that can be enhanced with complementary tools when higher levels of IT maturity are reached

Licensing metric definitions
Bottom rule

Authorized user

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Concurrent User is a person who is accessing the program at any particular point in time. Regardless of whether the person is simultaneously accessing the program multiple times, the person counts only as a single Concurrent User. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but licensee must obtain entitlements for the maximum number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each simultaneous Concurrent User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Server

Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. For the purpose of server-based licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements for each server which is made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores and/or partitions in the server or the number of copies of the program on the server.

Limited Use Managed Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Limited Use Managed Server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device, for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device that has the required components is considered itself a separate Limited Use Managed Server. Licensee must obtain entitlements for each Limited Use Managed Server managed by the program and meet the maximum authorized use terms and conditions below.

The Limited Use Managed Server maximum authorized use terms and conditions are managing servers with a maximum of two sockets per managed server. A socket is an electronic circuitry that accepts a processor chip which is an electronic circuitry containing one or more processor cores that plugs into a socket.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other licenses or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.

As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes:

Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge. Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data, or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.

In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource,), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

Pricing examples

IBM Application Manager for Smart Business

Limited Use Managed Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Limited Use Managed Server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input and output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device, for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device that has the required components is considered itself a separate Limited Use Managed Server. Licensee must obtain entitlements for each Limited Use Managed Server managed by the program and meet the maximum authorized use terms and conditions below.

The Limited Use Managed Server maximum authorized use terms and conditions are managed servers with a maximum of two sockets per managed server. A socket is an electronic circuitry that accepts a processor chip which is an electronic circuitry containing one or more processor cores that plugs into a socket.

The pricing example below should be used to determine required license entitlements for the following distributed products

Pricing example for IBM Tivoli Foundations Application Manager

Pricing example for IBM Service Manager for Smart Business

IBM Service Manager for Smart Business is licensed by a base Concurrent User and by client Concurrent and Authorized Users. A base Concurrent User is a prerequisite for all IBM Service Manager for Smart Business purchases. This base Concurrent User provides the necessary IBM software for installation along with one Concurrent User. If the customer requires additional Concurrent or Authorized Users, the customer must purchase client Concurrent or Authorized Users licenses. For example, if a customer only requires one Concurrent User, the following license scheme applies:

                                     Quantity in         License
                                     customer            entitlements

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.

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

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.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program 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. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

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 Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support (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

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.

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.
