Description
Bottom rule

IBM DB2 QMF Classic Edition VUE, V11 and IBM DB2 QMF Enterprise Edition VUE, V11 are priced optional features added to DB2 10 for z/OS VUE (5697-P31).

DB2 QMF 11 consists of a family of products in two editions that run on a variety of platforms depending on which option is selected.

DB2 QMF Classic Edition contains QMF for TSO and CICS, supporting business users and technical staff from a traditional mainframe terminal. It gives you fast, efficient access to DB2 for z/OS. QMF for TSO and CICS is delivered as an easy-to-use, menu-driven query, reporting, and graphics (requires GDDM/PGF) interface with extensive help facilities. It can run interactively or in batch. QMF objects are stored in a catalog for reuse and shared usage. QMF objects can be combined into a procedure for repetitive use as well. QMF is an enterprise business analytics solution. It can take advantage of other host functions and features such as REXX or DB2 Stored Procedures.

DB2 QMF Enterprise Edition feature contains the QMF for TSO and CICS component as well as four other features that greatly expand its usage and deployment throughout an enterprise:

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A US Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) containing details on accessibility compliance can be requested at

http://www.ibm.com/able/product_accessibility/index.html

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their general availability, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

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 wish 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:

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.

   Tier B       46-175     .35
   Tier C      176-315     .26
   Tier D      316+        .20

Note: For the actual translation from MSUs to Value Units for this product, refer to the table that follows.

Ordering example

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

If the customer has installed 1,000 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:

      Translation from MSUs to Value Units (VUE001)
 
              MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU  = Value Units
 
  Base          3     *  5.25             =  15.75
  Tier A       42     *   .83             =  34.86
  Tier B      130     *   .35             =  45.50
  Tier C      140     *   .26             =  36.40
  Tier D      685     *   .20             = 137.00
  
  Total     1,000                           270

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

Value Units for non-MSU-based S/390® processors using VUE001:

  MP3000 models
  H30         =  21.00 Value Units per machine
  H50         =  22.00 Value Units per machine
  H70         =  26.00 Value Units per machine
  ESL models  =   9.00 Value Units per machine

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance. This offering:

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless cancelled by you.

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390 and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

Customized Offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via CBPDO and ServerPac. These customized offerings are offered for Internet delivery in countries where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery reduces software delivery time and allows you to install software without the need to handle tapes. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the Shopz help information at

http://www.software.ibm.com/ShopzSeries

You choose the delivery method when you order the software. IBM recommends Internet delivery. In addition to Internet and DVD, the supported tape delivery options include:

Most products can be ordered in ServerPac the month following their availability in CBPDO. z/OS can be ordered via CBPDO and ServerPac at general availability. Many products will also be orderable in a Product ServerPac without also having to order the z/OS operating system or subsystem.

Shopz and CFSW will determine the eligibility based on product requisite checking. For more details on the product ServerPac, visit the Help section on the Shopz website at

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/ShopzSeries/ShopzSeries.jsp

For additional information on the Product ServerPac option, refer to Software Announcement 212-272, dated July 31, 2012.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned general availability date.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage® Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The following agreement applies for Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures:

DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition Qualified Sysplex means a Parallel Sysplex® in which z/OS is eligible for aggregated zNALC charges as described in the Charges section of the Attachment for zNALC License Charges on IBM System z.

Your license authorizes use of the DB2 for z/OS VUE only in validly licensed System z New Application License Charge (zNALC) LPARs for Eligible Workloads, which are defined as workloads that meet the following criteria:

Notwithstanding anything else in the IPLA, you are authorized to have copies of DB2 for z/OS VUE in support of your authorized use only:

In addition, you may make a backup copy. If you wish to deploy a copy of DB2 for z/OS VUE in any other separate zNALC environment, you must acquire another license to DB2 for z/OS VUE with its own separate entitlements.

Charges for this program are based on Value Unit entitlements.

Calculation of Value Unit entitlements for this program

For programs that will be deployed for use on a single machine not part of a Qualified Sysplex, the Value Unit entitlement will be determined as follows:

  1. There will be a calculation of the number of Value Units which would equate to the total sum of the MSUs for any copies of DB2 for z/OS VUE on the machine, and the MSUs for all instances of the version of DB2 for z/OS that matches the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE (for instance, only where the version of DB2 for z/OS of such instances is the same as the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE on that machine.
  2. There will be a calculation of the number of Value Units which would equate to the MSUs for all instances of the version of DB2 for z/OS that matches the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE (for instance, only where the version of DB2 for z/OS of such instances is the same as the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE) on the machine.
  3. The number of required Program Value Unit entitlements will be the Value Units calculated in (1) minus the Value Units calculated in (2).

For programs that will be deployed for use in a Qualified Sysplex, the Value Unit entitlement will be determined as follows:

  1. There will be a calculation of the number of Value Units which would equate to the total sum of the MSUs for any copies of DB2 for z/OS VUE in the Qualified Sysplex, and the MSUs for all instances of the version of DB2 for z/OS that matches the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE (for instance, only where the version of DB2 for z/OS of such instances is the same as the version of the program) in the Qualified Sysplex.
  2. There will be a calculation of the number of Value Units which would equate to the MSUs for all instances of the version of DB2 for z/OS that matches the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE (for instance, only where the version of DB2 for z/OS of such instances is the same as the version of the program) in the Qualified Sysplex.
  3. The number of program Value Unit entitlements will be the Value Units calculated in (1) minus the Value Units calculated in (2).

No MSUs associated with any other instances of DB2 for z/OS shall be included with the program MSUs in the calculation to determine required Value Unit entitlements.

Example:

For the purpose of illustration only, assuming that the MSUs for the existing version of DB2 for z/OS which matches the version of DB2 for z/OS VUE which would be included in the calculations = 100, and the MSUs for the program itself = 30 (where the calculated Value Units for the copies of the program based on program MSUs alone would = 39):

Recalculation of Value Unit entitlements

There may be circumstances in which your Value Unit entitlements must be recalculated based upon changes to the environment and configuration, and additional Value Units will need to be purchased if your existing Value Unit entitlement is not sufficient. For example:

The program will be treated as a Parent Program for purposes of calculating charges for System z IPLA programs with Referenced-Based Terms, just as if the program were a monthly license charge DB2 program. Additional charges for IBM programs with Referenced-Based Terms licensed by you may apply, just as when adding MSU capacity to other DB2 Parent Programs. This program is a System z IPLA program with Execution-Based Terms for purposes of Sub-Capacity pricing.

Maintenance/support fixes provided for DB2 for z/OS may not be applied to the program. Subscription and Support for the program may be separately acquired.

The program requires you to indicate acceptance of the terms of this license at installation time.

IBM has the right to audit all machines and Qualified Sysplexes on which the program is installed to ensure compliance with all the terms of this license and the zNALC terms and conditions.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

Sub-capacity charges for the programs in this announcement

To be eligible for sub-capacity charges, the machine on which the program is running must be eligible for zNALC sub-capacity charges terms and conditions. The customer must sign the zNALC Attachment and the IPLA Sub-Capacity Amendment and have implemented Sub-Capacity by submitting a SCRT report.

With sub-capacity charges, the charge is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for each machine, the customer should determine the MSUs needed for the machine on which the program will run. Use the product-defined capacity (MSUs) for z/OS (as specified on the Sub-Capacity Reports submitted to IBM for sub-capacity zNALC) as the sub-capacity (MSUs).

If the use of sub-capacity pricing terms for the program results in a reduced requirement for Value Units, thus freeing up entitlements, customers can reserve them for future growth. There will be no refunds for these freed up Value Units. Subscription and Support volumes and entitlements for existing contracts will continue to be at the same levels as the acquired licenses.

Management of the Value Unit entitlements continues to be a customer responsibility. For example, in addition to the need for Recalculation of Value Unit Entitlements as specified above, if one of the following occur on a machine to which the program is licensed for deployment, the customer must determine if additional Value Units and Subscription and Support need to be ordered for those tools to cover the increase:

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. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

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/
Sub-capacity mainframes

The following terms apply for DB2 QMF 11 Classic Edition VUE and DB2 QMF 11 Enterprise Edition VUE, priced optional features of DB2 10 for z/OS VUE:

Execution based: The required capacity of DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition with these terms equals the capacity of the zNALC LPAR(s) where the DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The System/370, System/390®, and System z Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901), or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits website

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

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184, dated August 10, 2004.

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms add 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 might 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 the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  1. That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001, dated January 13, 1998.
  2. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition will be treated as a "Parent Program" for purposes of calculating charges for System z IPLA programs with Referenced-Based Terms, just as if DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition were a monthly license charge DB2 program. Additional charges for IBM programs with Referenced-Based Terms licensed by you may apply, just as when adding MSU capacity to other DB2 Parent Programs. DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition is a System z IPLA program with Execution-Based Terms for purposes of Sub-Capacity pricing.

In the event a machine has both zNALC LPARs running DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition and non-zNALC LPARs running DB2 (MLC), the MSUs applicable to those DB2 products for the purpose of establishing charges for Reference-Based z IPLA Programs will be the lesser of a) the sum of the DB2 (MLC) and DB2 for z/OS Value Unit Edition MSUs or b) the peak z/OS MSUs as indicated on the SCRT report.

Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging for DB2 QMF 11 Classic Edition VUE and DB2 QMF 11 Enterprise Edition VUE, priced optional features of DB2 10 for z/OS VUE, you must first implement and comply with all terms of the zNALC Attachment.

To implement sub-capacity, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

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 Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the zNALC offering, whichever is applicable:

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

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 eServer zSeries 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 product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

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.

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.
