How to Mitigate Five IBM Licensing Risks CLE*

in News

Because IBM products like WebSphere, DB2, Tivoli, Informix, and Lotus Notes are expensive, and companies cannot always easily or quickly verify compliance, companies are facing substantial unbudgeted financial risks associated with IBM licensing. For example, if a company is trying to license under IBM’s Sub-Capacity license rules and fails to adhere to all of the requirements, IBM often demands enough licenses to cover the full capacity of the computers on which the software is installed.

In some instances, the costs associated with non-compliance can be tens of millions of dollars. Proper licensing is critical to avoid unexpected liabilities.

The following topics will be covered in the webinar:

  • Licensing obligations for IBM software
  • Determining what agreements govern the relationship
  • Sub-Capacity Licensing
    • ILMT
    • Virtualization and Load Balancing
  • How IBM acquisitions affect licensing
  • Audits
