Description

Tivoli's Product End-of-Life Policy

The primary goal of the Tivoli® End-of-Life (EOL) policy is to provide a predictable, orderly transition from previous to current Tivoli software products.

The Tivoli EOL policy is based on the overall IBM policy for withdrawal of hardware, software, and services from marketing and support. There are two aspects to Tivoli product End of Life:

Withdrawal from Marketing (WDfM): During the life of a product, initial versions and releases may be replaced by subsequent versions and releases that will be delivered to customers placing new orders, as well as existing customers who are covered by first-year support, or have acquired subsequent-year support for the product.

When all of the functions of a product have become obsolete, or have been absorbed by one or more other products, the product will be withdrawn. This means the deletion of the product's Program Identification Number and its associated Feature Numbers from sales manuals and price lists, so the product can no longer be ordered. Typically, an announcement of product withdrawal will precede the effective date, or last-order date, by 90 days.

End of Service (EOS): Defect support for Tivoli products will generally be provided only for the current release and the most recent prior release. A prior release will be eligible for service for 12 months following general availability of the current release. These releases will be supported at the latest maintenance ("point release") level.

Usually, there will be 12 months' notice of EOS for a specific release. At the time of product withdrawal, notice of the EOS date for the final release will be given. At the time a release reaches EOS, it will no longer be supported, updated, patched, or maintained.

After the effective EOS date, Tivoli may elect, at its sole discretion, to provide custom support beyond the EOS date for a fee.
