Discontinuance of program services/licensed program support

Top rule

IBM will be discontinuing program service for selected licensed programs specified in this announcement. For programs licensed between the date of this announcement and the effective date of discontinuance of program services (DoS), the effective DoS date must be included in the applicable ALP supplement in addition to the current program service type. APARs will be accepted up to the effective date of discontinuance. At the discretion of IBM, a final release may be sent to users on record, incorporating corrections for all valid APARs received up to that time. APARs that addressed problems resulting from PTFs or fixes in the last release may be submitted within the 30-day SDF-Europe production window, or by the deadline specified in the final release distributed by SDF-Europe. All users on record who may be affected by this announcement must receive written notification of these changes from IBM. The written notification must be immediate in order to meet the time limit requirement of the contract. Outstanding and further proposals regarding any of the licensed programs included in this announcement must reflect its contents accordingly.

International Program License Agreement (IPLA), Subscription and Support (S&S) Discontinuance of Service (DoS) Process

This section contains IBM's S&S DoS process. IPLA Product Family, IPLA Trade-up and S&S Terms descriptions are provided along with establishment of the S&S DoS effective date and S&S DoS billing business practices.

IPLA Product Family

An IPLA product may have one or more versions. The IPLA product versions have a single associated S&S. The IPLA product versions together with the associated S&S compose an IPLA product family.

IPLA Trade-up

IBM may offer a trade-up from a replaced IPLA product which provides a replacement IPLA product in a different IPLA product family for a reduced or no charge. The trade-up offering may also be described as a migration or transition offering. The replaced IPLA product license must have an active S&S to qualify for the trade-up.

S&S Terms

The International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (IAASM) (US Form number Z125-6011, WW Form number INTC-6011) contains S&S terms and conditions. Amongst S&S entitlements are the ability for the customer to acquire new releases or new versions of an IPLA product in the same IPLA product family, if IBM makes them available. IBM's business practice may also grant customers who have active S&S the right to trade up and acquire a replacement IPLA product in a different IPLA product family. IBM will continue to charge customers S&S when any of the following conditions apply:

  • If support is available for the IPLA product
  • If new IPLA releases or versions are made available within the same IPLA product family
  • If IBM offers a trade-up to another IPLA product in a different IPLA product family.

Customers may terminate or decline S&S at any time.

Setting of S&S DoS Effective Date Business Practice

IPLA product without a trade-up or migration: Upon announcement of DoS of the last IPLA release in an IPLA product family, the DoS of the S&S will be announced and have the same effective date of the IPLA DoS effective date.

IPLA product with a trade-up or migration: Upon announcement of DoS of the last IPLA release in an IPLA product family, the DoS of the S&S will be announced and have the same or later effective date as the IPLA DoS effective date.

Annual Support Charges (ASC) S&S DOS Billing Practice

IBM will bill or prorate ASC S&S charges up to the DoS effective date.

When IBM does bill ASC S&S charges up front for annual period extending beyond the S&S DoS effective date, IBM will issue a credit for the ASC S&S prorated period after the S&S DoS effective date through the end of the current S&S Anniversary Period.

The ASC S&S will normally be converted to a Decline No Charge S&S.

Monthly Support Charges (MSC) S&S DoS Billing Practice

IBM will bill MSC S&S charges up to the DoS effective date.

The MSC S&S will normally be converted to a Decline No Charge S&S.

Note 1: 5655-M23: Updated tools OpenSSH, IBM HTTP Server powered by Apache and Xvfb are or will be part of z/OS V2.2 and higher. Newer releases of remaining tools, namely bzip2, cURL, PHP, Perl, and sudo are provided by our ecosystem partner, Rocket Software.

Note 2: 5655-FT8 and 5655-FT9: Although this product has no formal replacement, IBM Financial Transaction Manager for SWIFT Services is a follow-on product that includes significantly greater SWIFT processing capabilities than IBM Financial Transaction Manager for SWIFT Business Services. Financial Transaction Manager for SWIFT Business Services clients should contact your IBM sales representative to discuss moving to Financial Transaction Manager for SWIFT Services.

Note 3: 5655-DMS: Clients should consider upgrading to IBM Application Delivery Foundation for z Systems, 5655-AC6, which contains all base capabilities, plus additional z/OS application development capabilities.

Note 4: 5696-703: Clients should consider licensing IBM Data Virtualization Manager (5698-DVM) as a follow-on solution to DataRefresher.
