Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Defense Operations Platform Command Center for Enterprise Content Management (DOP for ECM) delivers the capability to rapidly deploy missions, from high-echelon command centers to the battlefield and Front and Back office operations.

DOP for ECM is a truly unique mission platform. It provides an integrated deployment platform to host and synchronize mission capabilities. By providing a prefabricated mission deployment environment, IBM accelerates the delivery of mission capability to the war-fighter and Front and Back office personnel.

Using an open-standards basis, IBM Defense Operations Platform also eases interoperability concerns amongst war-fighting units and coalition partners. Many NATO and US Department of Defense Core Enterprise Services are enabled by DOP for ECM. DOP has interoperability standards that include chat, mission thread monitoring, mission-capability discovery, and synchronization of remote units.

In some cases these interoperability interfaces require APIs that are provided by the defense agency. DOP for ECM, is a preintegrated, pretested common mission-execution environment that is purposed for defense and government clients as well as system integrators. The DOP for ECM product can rapidly onboard mission capability and address emerging threats.

The original IBM Defense Operations Platform V1.0 product consists of four editions: Command Center Edition, Field Edition, Mobile Edition, and Workbench Edition. DOP for ECM consists of only the Command Center Edition.

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.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

User Value Unit (UVU)

UVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. UVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number and type of users for the given program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of UVUs required for licensee's environment as specified in the program specific table. The UVU entitlements are specific to the program and type of user and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another program or type of user. Refer to the program specific UVU table.

The programs in this announcement all have Value Unit-Based pricing.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
