Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Multi-Enterprise Integration Gateway V1.0 incorporates a new technology stack that isolates communication and protocol support from core message processing. This helps enable a high availability, high performance trading partner communications interface even during unplanned system outages or when IT is applying updates to core processing capabilities. It also allows IT to scale their communication requirements independent of the rest of the platform. Key capabilities include:

IBM Multi-Enterprise Integration Gateway V1.0 offering is part of the IBM Multi-Enterprise Process Collaboration bundle and extends the capabilities of IBM Sterling B2B Integrator.

Business-to-business (B2B) integration advanced communications with IBM Multi-Enterprise Integration Gateway V1.0 helps enable high availability and high performance trading partner networks. IBM recognizes that companies require a single platform as a foundation for all their (B2B) use cases and to support the growth plans of their business. At the same time, companies want the flexibility to selectively deploy the capabilities necessary to run their business.

Mergers, acquisitions, and globalization are driving companies to expand their value chains and the multi-enterprise process collaboration they have with their B2B community. For many organizations, this forces a recognition that their current approach to B2B integration does not address the requirements of a growing global trading partner network and the demands for a more responsive value chain. Traditional approaches, such as overnight batch processes, lengthy on-boarding times, and taking down your trading partner network for maintenance, no longer satisfy the demands of the modern enterprise for real-time processes, an always on 24 x 7 x 365 global trading partner network and simplified on-boarding. As a result, the role of B2B integration within the organization is changing from a traditional infrastructure platform to a strategic growth enabler.

Based on a history of silo-based projects and treating B2B file transfer activity separately from message-based transactions, companies find themselves struggling to interconnect a complex mix of internal and external business processes, platforms, and data. At the same time, advances in communication protocols, such as Applicability Statement 4 (AS4), or new releases of industry data standards make it difficult to keep their B2B integration capabilities up-to-date. Often, lines of business insist on the ability to exchange data with trading partners regardless of day or time, which requires a high availability global trading partner network.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

A PVU is a unit of measure used to differentiate licensing of software on distributed processor technologies (defined by processor vendor, brand, type, and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip (socket). Each software program has a unique price per PVU.

Notes : Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

Statement of good security practices

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.
