Replacement information

As part of this evolution of our portfolio, IBM is removing IBM Workplace Services Express offerings from market in 2008, and will entitle existing customers to equivalent offerings from the IBM Lotus portfolio. Replacement offerings are dependent on the current licenses held by the customer.

Customers who are current on Software Maintenance for IBM Workplace Services Express will receive their next Software Maintenance renewal quotes for the following replacement products.

Each current Software Maintenance entitlement for IBM Workplace Services Express 20 User Pack Licenses will be replaced by 20 IBM Lotus Quickr Authorized User Software Maintenance renewal and one IBM WebSphere® Portal Express 20 User Pack Software Maintenance renewal.

Each current Software Maintenance entitlement for IBM Workplace Services Express Processor Value Unit Licenses will be replaced by one IBM Lotus Quickr Extranet Value Unit Maintenance renewal and one IBM WebSphere Portal Express Processor Value Unit Software Maintenance renewal.
