Overview
Bottom rule

Leading organizations are breaking down their information silos to gain control of their most important and commonly shared enterprise information assets. They are looking for smarter, easier, and more adaptive solutions to drive better business decisions. These initiatives are based on master data management (MDM), a practice designed to achieve and maintain a single version of truth across the enterprise. Managing product master data plays an important role in any company's measure of business performance.

Establishing a single view of product master data and associated domains such as suppliers, vendors, customers, and locations enables companies to address key strategic business initiatives throughout an organization. Typical use cases include workflow collaboration scenarios built around various business initiatives such as multi-channel commerce, supplier on-boarding, enterprise product catalog, new product introduction, and Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) compliance. A complicated set of workflows and approval processes follows that involves numerous users and approvers. Depending on the use case, an implementation for product master data may require features such as a flexible data model, granular data access and security, real-time access, workflow, rich user interfaces, quick user interface generation, business logic, GDSN data model, and messaging choreography.

  • Manage items and various relationships among items (packaging, substitution, cross-sell, up-sell, bundles, or prepacks)
  • Manage locations, location hierarchies, and various attributes related to locations
  • Deliver superior category hierarchy support
  • Support specific attributes and attribute values
    • Category
    • Location
    • Organization
    • Relationship

Organizational modeling with role and attribute-level security administration

Product information is often owned and modified by users from multiple departments within a company. With InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM, companies can segment various attributes of product data per business responsibility (such as logistics, finance, pricing, marketing, and supplier) and control user actions (such as view only, edit, and approve) based on their roles.

Pricing analysts can enter and update pricing while marketing users can work on product description, features, and benefits. Each user sees the relevant product information based on his or her role for a security-rich and productive user interface. Organization modeling and security for InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM includes the following functions:

  • Access control groups and selections for segment data per business responsibility through access control groups and selections
  • Granular security for permitted user actions by user role

Resource Value Unit

Resource Value Unit (RVU) is a unit of measure by which this program is licensed. The RVU entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement must be obtained for the appropriate number of RVUs required for your environment as determined in accordance with the program terms. The RVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with the RVU entitlements of another program. To determine how many RVUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative or consult the IBM License Information document for IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management Server for Product Information Management V9.1 by typing "Master Data Management Server for Product Information Management" in the Search Criteria box at

http://www-03.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf/search

The RVU entitlements for this program are based on the number and type of entities managed in the program.

An entity is defined as each product, item, good, service, asset, location, or party, whether active or inactive, that is represented in or tracked, maintained, or managed using the program. The entity includes each individual variation as well as each bundle of more than one of the same or different entities.

For example, an entity may represent:

  • Physical goods (for example, an apparel item, or material, or a part for a product)
  • Products delivered digitally, such as an app or a song
  • Services-based offerings such as a bank product or a telecommunications service provider offering
  • Product kits, bundles, and configurations (for example, shampoo and conditioner combined into a single salable item; a cell phone product)
  • An Internet connection service made available as a single offering

As further examples, the following are treated as individual products:

  • Products that have unique characteristics: A shirt sold in blue, green, and yellow in sizes small, medium, and large for each color count as nine products.
  • Different configurations of a product: A pallet, a case, and a pack count as three separate products.
  • Identical products that are sold in different locations with location-specific attributes: A cell phone sold in the United States with packaging in English is a separate product from one sold in Spain with packaging in Spanish.

Predefined entity types are included with the program and are grouped into the following categories:

  • Soft Goods and Services
  • Manufactured Goods
  • Assets and Commodities
  • Locations
  • Trading Partners and Parties (Licensee may only use the entity or entities for which Licensee is entitled)

Soft Goods and Services means any class of offering, good, or service, manifesting as an agreement between the Licensee and an external party that is enumerated in the program's Entity Count Tool under the Soft Goods and Services classification. Examples include, but are not limited to financial accounts, consumer credit agreements and contracts, mortgage loans, insurance policies, telephone and data rate plans, service agreements, software licenses, grants to copyrighted material, groupings and bundles of accounts and value packages combined into a single salable item.

Manufactured Goods means a good or service, or a component of a good or a service, that is of interest to the Licensee and that is enumerated in the program's Entity Count Tool under the Manufactured Goods classification. Examples include, but are not limited to physical goods, such as an item of apparel or can of soup; and product groupings, bundles, and configurations, such as shampoo and conditioner combined into a single salable item.

Assets and Commodities means any asset, tangible or intangible, owned by the Licensee, or for which the Licensee has a material financial interest, and that is enumerated in the program's Entity Count Tool under the Assets and Commodities classification. Examples include, but are not limited to hardware, such as tools, manufacturing equipment, and computer hardware; software licenses owned by the Licensee, vehicles and rolling stock; real estate and intellectual property, such as digital media and content.

Locations means a location (identified via a physical address or geospatial attribute); a geography; a territory or region; a collection of geographies, territories, or regions that is of interest to the Licensee and that is enumerated in the program's Entity Count Tool under the Locations classification. Examples include physical addresses for retail outlets, distribution locations, drop-ship points, independent distributors, and agent offices.

Trading Partner and Parties means an individual or organization with which the Licensee has a contractual relationship for the purpose of obtaining goods and services from that individual or organization, or for distribution of goods and services to that individual or organization for the purpose of resale. Examples include distributors, suppliers, franchisees, and employees.

Workgroup Edition - RVU and license restrictions

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).

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.

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

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.
