Overview

With the 2009 acquisition of ILOG, ILOG technology adds significant capability across the IBM® software portfolio.

ILOG solutions deliver tools and technologies for business managers, analysts, architects, and developers to use as they analyze, plan, track, and improve business processes. Today, hundreds of large enterprises use ILOG technologies to automate the allocation of scarce resources and to build smart interfaces into their business processes. Additionally, scientists and mathematicians from hundreds of universities use ILOG products for advanced research, design, and analysis.

The IBM WebSphere® ILOG JRules offering delivers a business rule management system (BRMS). This system is used to define, deploy, execute, monitor, and maintain the variety and complexity of business logic that are used by operational systems within an organization or enterprise. A BRMS manages the lifecycle of business rules and allows business logic to be externalized from core application code and processes, thus allowing both technical developers and line of business experts to define and manage business logic.

The IBM WebSphere ILOG BRMS products help businesses increase the agility of their decision making by letting them adapt and respond dynamically. The standalone BRMS product will continue to work with WebSphere, and will interoperate with and complement popular IBM System z® subsystems such as CICS®, IMS™, and DB2®. Further, the IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules product complements the WebSphere Business Process Management Suite, attaching to both WebSphere Dynamic Process Edition and FileNet® Active Content Edition. The addition of a BRMS provides another dimension of leadership for the IBM business process management (BPM) portfolio.

IBM ILOG Optimization Decision Manager Enterprise Edition can help deliver measurable return on investment (ROI) and rapid payback through powerful analytical decision support capabilities, helping companies across all industries determine how to defer or avoid capital expenses, reduce operating expenses, and improve total revenue, revenue mix, and margins, by making the best use of limited resources, while managing risk and ultimately driving both customer and employee satisfaction.

New IBM software products acquired from ILOG are now available through Passport Advantage® under a new, streamlined licensing and pricing model. Passport Advantage (PPA) is a simple, comprehensive loyalty program that provides software-license acquisition and renewable Software Subscription and Support (product updates and technical support) using a common set of processes and tools.

Description
Bottom rule

Business rule management systems (BRMS) define, deploy, execute, and maintain decision logic used to determine tactical actions that take place in processes and applications. A BRMS provides the means to represent domain knowledge with attention to detail, depth, and variability of business decisions in a manner that can be used by operational systems. Leveraging a BRMS offers a number of advantages over keeping it inside procedural code.

BRMS can help you to:

The corresponding business values where BMRS can have an impact are:

IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules is the industry-leading solution for managing business rules, designed to easily couple BRMS and business process management (BPM) in SOA environments through the creation of intelligent, automated decision services by using, reusing, and deploying those business rules across processes -- and dealing with specialized rule definitions, versioning, security, governance, auditability, and transparency requirements.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the Program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server"s activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program"s License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/

Then select Licensing. From there, select Processor Value Unit (PVU) licensing for Distributed SW.

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Then select Licensing. From there, select Processor Value Unit calculator.

The programs in this announcement have Value Unit-based pricing.

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.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

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. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

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 programs. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the programs 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 programs as long as support is in effect.

License information form number

The programs' License Informations will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program; and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
