Overview

Top rule

IBM Cloud™ Pak for Data is a data and analytics platform with built-in governance. It simplifies and unifies how you collect, organize, and analyze data to accelerate the value of data science and artificial intelligence (AI). This multicloud platform delivers a broad range of core data microservices, with the option to add more from a growing services catalog. IBM Cloud Pak for Data offers greater flexibility, security, and control, along with the benefits of the cloud without having to move your data.

IBM Cloud Pak for Data V2.5 introduces several new features and product enhancements, including:

  • Red Hat OpenShift certification across IBM Cloud Pak for Data services
  • Open source governance capabilities for managing risks and accelerating open source project delivery
  • AutoAI to automate the development of AI models, powered by AI that builds AI
  • IBM® Streams feature expansion that introduces visual application building, near real-time visual debugging, and support for Red Hat AMQ Streams
  • New industry accelerators that include Offer Affinity, Streaming Analytics for Life Event Prediction, and Intelligence Maintenance for Telco
  • Several enhancements to IBM Watson® Studio, IBM Watson Machine Learning, data virtualization, multitenancy, and metering

Version 2.5 of IBM Cloud Pak for Data introduces new offerings called packages. A package includes the IBM Cloud Pak for Data entitlements that are required to run the service. The following packages are made available in this release:

  • IBM Cloud Pak for Data DataStage®
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Data Watson™ Studio Premium
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Data Db2®

Cloud Pak for Data V2.5 includes changes to the license requirements for Streams resources. Streams Console, Management, Repository, Security, Build, and Builder resources now require Cloud Pak for Data licenses. Previous versions provided an exclusion for these resources.

This release also introduces a new licensing model for IBM Cloud Pak for Data called Committed Term License.

Committed term licenses are a new license type for IBM clients. Like monthly licenses, committed term licenses enable clients to purchase licenses to IBM software in a cloud-centric model. This new licensing method aligns to cloud-centered consumption models and is currently available for:

  • IBM Cloud Pak for Applications
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Integration
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Automation
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Data

As organizations adopt multicloud architectures for their most critical applications, an alignment of pricing and consumption models becomes of utmost importance.

Committed term licenses provide a new model to procure IBM software, designed and priced to:

  • Make it easier for organizations to acquire IBM software
  • Align consumption models and spend to those clients accustomed to cloud-based solutions
  • Align with the Red Hat subscription model to deliver a consistent buying experience across both product portfolios

Committed term licenses will be available for new license sales and as an upgrade from existing investments in IBM software, referred to as committed term license upgrades. For new license sales or expansion of existing IBM software licenses, committed term licenses can be procured for a minimum of 12-months. Both offerings can be billed upfront, annually, quarterly, or monthly, depending upon client preferences.

For committed term upgrades, clients can leverage their qualifying active Subscription and Support to convert to a committed term license upgrade. Clients will be required to suspend the prior license during the term of the committed term license upgrade. Clients can cancel at the end of the term or renew the committed term license upgrade. If clients choose to cancel at the end of the committed term, they have the option to reinstate the applicable suspended licenses and resume IBM Software Subscription and Support at then current prices.

IBM Cloud Pak for Data now includes the following add-ons:

  • Figure Eight. Transform text, images, audio, and videos into annotated training data to fuel your machine learning initiatives.

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 about known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, see the IBM Support Guide.

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 one year 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 (by 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 versions, releases, and updates (CD releases, Long Term Support Releases or fixes) of the program. You will be notified, through an announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with six 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.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
