Overview
Bottom rule

With IBM InfoSphere Optim Data Masking Solution, you can take steps to protect privacy while still providing realistic data for use in development, testing, or training. When you use Optim to mask confidential data, you help protect privacy and better safeguard shareholder value.

Optim's masking techniques include using arithmetic expressions, substrings, random or sequential number generation, date aging, and more.

The Optim components function as follows:

  • The Optim Designer, based on the Eclipse platform, builds models and services needed by the management server and its proxies to execute data management operations. Optim services are published to a central registry and then assigned to a management server and proxy where they can be executed from the web-based manager. Optionally, Optim services can be executed locally from the Optim Designer in a test mode without the need to publish.
  • The Optim Management Server, based on the Java™ Enterprise Edition (Java EE 6) platform, delegates the operations in an Optim service, set up in the Optim Designer, to one or more proxies and hosts the centralized repository for models and other information needed to orchestrate the workload.
  • The Optim Proxy, based on web services, acts as a trusted extension of the management server, executing one or more Optim services.
  • The Optim Manager is a web-based tool hosted by the management server.
  • A database contains replacement data as well as predefined source and target data sources.

Features of Optim Data Masking Solution V2.2 include:

  • Support for creating global data masking policies
  • Rules-based data masking for dates, character and numeric values, email addresses, credit card numbers of the major credit card associations, and the national IDs of Canada, Spain, France, Italy, UK, and US
  • Data Privacy Models for masking dates, characters and numbers, and personal identities
  • Out-of-the-box replacement data for common attributes such as address, first name, last name, and company name
  • Task-oriented UIs for consistent service execution
  • Enhanced Scheduling interface
  • Enhanced Database Driver upload interface
  • Solution launchpad for ease of installation
  • Improved diagnostics and messages
  • Native database access for DB2 z/OS
  • Manager running from within the Designer can perform the following tasks:
    • Execute services
    • Publish services to registries
    • Export services to files

Description
Bottom rule

IBM InfoSphere Optim Data Masking solution provides extensive capabilities for masking sensitive data more effectively across nonproduction environments, while still providing realistic data for use in development, testing, or training. With InfoSphere Optim Data Masking solution, users can apply a variety of proven data transformation techniques to replace sensitive real data with contextually accurate and realistic fictitious data. Users can mask data in a single database or across multiple related systems. Simple examples of the masking techniques in InfoSphere Optim include substrings, arithmetic expressions, random or sequential number generation, date aging, and concatenation. And the solution's context-aware masking capabilities help ensure that masked data retain the look and feel of the original information. Key capabilities include:

  • Apply a range of masking techniques to transform personally identifying information and other confidential corporate data
  • Leverage prepackaged data masking routines to transform complex data elements such as credit card numbers, email addresses, and national identifiers, while retaining their contextual meaning
  • Substitute test environments with realistic, fictionalized data, creating a sandbox for application testing
  • Consolidate and mask data from multiple interrelated applications to create a production-like test environment that accurately reflects end-to-end business processes
  • Support efforts to comply with privacy regulations such as HIPAA, GLBA, DDP, PIPEDA, Safe Harbour, PCI DSS, and others
  • Apply a single, scalable enterprise data management solution across applications, databases (DB2, IMS™, VSAM/SEQ, Adabas, Informix®, Oracle, Sybase, SQL Server, and XML), and platforms (Microsoft® Windows®, UNIX/Linux, and z/OS)
  • Apply a single, scalable solution across applications (Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, Siebel, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, SAP, and AmdocsCRM), databases (DB2, Informix, Oracle, Sybase, SQL Server, and XML) and platforms (Windows, UNIX/Linux, and z/OS)

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 want 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 section.

Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  1.00            =    3.00
Tier A       42   *   .45            =   18.90
Tier B      130   *   .36            =   46.80
Tier C      140   *   .27            =   37.80
Tier D    1,185   *   .20            =  237.00

Total     1,500                         343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Full-capacity mainframes

In cases where full capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based, z/OS based, full machine based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, visit

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Sub-capacity mainframes

In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

z/OS based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS on the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

Reference based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Full machine based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with full machine based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBM System z Machines Exhibit, Z125-3901, or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits website

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of the System z IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  • Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the sysplex
Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select System z IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390® operating system must be migrated to the z/OS operating systems.
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating systems must be running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode.

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the System z Software Pricing website

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for IBM System z 890 and 800 License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - Amendment for IBM System z9® and System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of a sub-capacity eligible reference product and machine.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for IBM System z On/Off Capacity on Demand (Z125-7883) must be signed prior to use.
