Notes:
- The IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 Enterprise Software bundle now includes entitlements for the following products and features:
IBM InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager Extended Edition for DB2, Linux, and Windows 5.1.1.1; IBM Mashup Center 2.0; and WebSphere MQSeries 7.0.1.

Attention: Optim Performance Manager software conflicts with the DB2 Performance Expert software that is installed and configured on the IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 offering.

These products are not part of the installed, preconfigured, and validated IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 stack. If you choose to install one or more entitled products, refer to the following technote when planning your implementation and validation project: "Can I install additional software on an IBM Smart Analytics System (formerly known as BCU)?".

- All software is 64-bit unless otherwise indicated. All DB2 features must be at the same level as the ESE software.

Footnotes:
