Description
Bottom rule

The enhancements delivered in IBM Integration Bus, previously known as WebSphere Message Broker, are as follows:

Apply business insight to make near-real-time decisions to influence processing flow

Many organizations exploit business rules to improve the quality of transaction- and process-related decisions that are made repeatedly, determining the appropriate course of action for each customer, partner, and internal interaction. When business rules are combined with an integration solution, such decisions are able to influence data as it is being processed in near-real-time, helping to achieve an optimal business outcome.

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 provides built-in capabilities to invoke rules during processing in order to make intelligent routing, validation, and transformation decisions:

Existing clients transitioning to the built-in rules support from the "IAM9: WebSphere Decision Service Node" SupportPac will benefit from improvements in usability, installability, and deployment. For more information about licensing requirements, refer to the IBM Decision Server topic in the Terms and conditions section.

Rapidly create integration services to meet the needs of process designers

Business process management (BPM) enables organizations to automate, manage, measure, and continuously improve the processes that drive their business. For a given process, this involves choreographing a series of steps that may include human tasks, business rules, and integration services that trigger requests to underlying applications and systems.

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 simplifies and accelerates the creation of integration services in support of a BPM solution:

Manage integration workload to prioritize resources and prevent outages

The scope of integration solutions is broadening to extend beyond enterprise boundaries, enabling an explosion of new endpoints (such as mobile applications, cloud applications, and sensors) to have access to enterprise applications and services. This enables a broad spectrum of new opportunities from increasing productivity and responsiveness to deeper customer engagement and loyalty. With these opportunities come the challenges of maintaining availability of business-critical systems in the face of increasing demand or spikes in activity, and effectively managing resources to reflect workload priorities.

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 provides new capabilities that allow operational awareness and control over processing traffic:

Include application-to-application integration in centralized business activities

Application developers are increasingly required to connect applications they create with existing applications to deliver a new composite solution. To assist with this, they need a lightweight integration framework that allows them to quickly and easily enable applications for connectivity and configure common tasks without the need for deep integration skills.

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 and IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 deliver new capabilities and productivity aids that provide a simple way for an application developer to compose applications. Once in place, integration between applications can be instrumented, and events flowed to IBM Integration Bus for inclusion in centralized monitoring, audit, or analytics activities:

Improve elasticity and response times by exploiting flexible caching capabilities

Caching is a fundamental technology that facilitates the building of scalable infrastructure to support growth in the demand for services. For an integration solution, a distributed cache provides a repository for data reuse and sharing across the network. This creates an elastic processing network able to respond to a request from any available node, and minimizes the amount of data retrieved from back-end systems.

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 includes an embedded IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale global cache, along with new options to connect securely to an external cache:

Monitor and visualize performance statistics in real time

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 provides powerful new tools to graphically view operational performance statistics. This provides operational personnel with access to:

Exploit new patterns to rapidly integrate Microsoft applications

IBM Integration Bus V9.0 delivers additional productivity aids enabling Microsoft applications to be rapidly integrated as part of a heterogeneous integration solution. Prebuilt patterns for Microsoft Dynamics CRM allow transformation and synchronization of client data with another CRM application. This facilitates sharing of the state of business relationships and transactions consistently across an organization, while preserving data quality:

Flexibly provision solutions across a range of physical and cloud environments

IBM Integration Bus Hypervisor Edition offers flexible integration solution provisioning across a range of physical and cloud-based deployment options. Stable and tested configurations are available for use with IBM Workload Deployer and IBM PureApplication™ System. These offer particular benefits in deploying and managing an integration solution:

Should your integration requirements develop or change, you have the freedom to nondisruptively transition between these options irrespective of the initial selection.

IBM Integration Bus Hypervisor Edition can serve as a basis for the provisioning of IBM Integration Bus on public cloud environments using bring-your-own licensing.

Import and convert existing integration assets from WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus

IBM Integration Bus represents IBM's strategic Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) offering and is the successor product for existing clients of both WebSphere Message Broker and WebSphere ESB.

IBM Integration Bus provides tooling that facilitates the conversion of existing WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus assets so they can run on IBM Integration Bus. The tooling enables:

The conversion tooling is built upon an extensible framework, enabling further enhancements that reduce the number of manual tasks required.

WebSphere MQ V7.5 is provided with IBM Integration Bus. For more information, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

WebSphere Adapters

WebSphere Adapters V7.5 for SAP, Siebel, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards are provided with IBM Integration Bus. The adapters enable connectivity to these commonly used package applications. These adapters are available for both development and production usage.

Modes of operation

IBM Integration Bus offers a number of modes of operation to licensed clients. The mode of operation may be selected at any time, subject to the purchase of license entitlement. Existing clients may select any mode of operation at deployment time and are not required to reinstall their existing IBM Integration Bus media.

Hypervisor Editions for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and IBM AIX

The Hypervisor Editions offer a combination of IBM Integration Bus, WebSphere MQ, and the operating system compatible with the supported hypervisor, optimized to run in server virtualization environments.

Remote Adapter Deployment (RAD) Edition

The RAD Edition enables deployment of adapters for connecting to applications and other data sources, including databases.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

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

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the Program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

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 IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is available only 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 International 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. 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 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.

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

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 version or release 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 (modifications or fixes), 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.

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage
Usage restriction

Yes

IBM Integration Bus includes some components from other programs. Some of these have usage limitations, such as being used only for development and functional test purposes. Refer to the Program license for further details and usage definitions.

Development and functional test use

Under development and functional test use, the Program or components can be deployed only as part of Licensee's internal development, unit, and functional testing environments. Functional Test is limited to activities that ensure that the Program can be used to connect to local or remote endpoints, and that a sample of data sent between those endpoints is processed correctly. Licensee is not authorized to use the Program or components for system-level integration testing, processing production workloads, simulating production workloads, or testing the scalability of any code, application, or system.

IBM Decision Server

IBM Integration Bus, the Program, includes a Decision Service node. This node allows the Program to invoke business rules that run on a component of IBM Decision Server that is provided with the Program. Use of this component is supported only via Decision Service nodes. The Program license provides entitlement for the Licensee to make use of Decision Service nodes for development and functional test uses. Refer to the IBM Integration Bus License Information text for details about the program-unique terms.

For usage beyond development and functional test, you must purchase a separate license entitlement for either IBM Decision Server or IBM Decision Server Rules Edition for Integration Bus. For more details about these products, including ordering information, refer to Software Announcement 213-125, dated April 23, 2013 .

IBM WebSphere MQ

The Program includes a copy of IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5. Licensee is authorized to install and use IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5 on a limited basis in association with Licensee's use of the Program components, as follows:

IBM WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition

The Program includes nodes called FTEInput and FTEOutput. These allow the Program to fully participate in the transfer of files using WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition. Using the nodes in this way, the Program operates as the equivalent of a WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Client Device. A separate license for a WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Client Device is not required in this instance. However, a license for a WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Server is needed elsewhere in the infrastructure.

Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express . Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short-duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the applicable agreements.

Top rule
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.
