Migrate to the new IBM DataWorks

Share this post:

Today we will introduce a new IBM DataWorks service with an improved environment and priced plans.

We will be deprecating the existing free service at the time of the new IBM DataWorks service launch. The free service will remain available to you for 90 days from the time of this communication, to facilitate migration if you want to retain assets created prior to the launch of the new DataWorks.

To migrate to the new version of DataWorks, please complete the following steps:

  • Subscribe to the new DataWorks service and open a ticket with Bluemix support.
  • In your support ticket, set the problem summary to “DataWorks Migration.”
  • Set the Problem Type field to “Technical Questions/Problem.”
  • Specify your existing service’s organization in the Bluemix organization field.
  • Specify your existing service’s space in the Bluemix space field.
  • Open your existing service tile, copy the URL from your browser’s toolbar, and paste it into the problem description. Your service URL will look like the following example:

This will be a one-time activity that will move all assets in your service.

The new DataWorks service includes a “Starter” plan priced at $2 per activity run. Activity runs that move 1,000 rows of data or less to a target will be free. On December 8th, the “Starter” plan will launch as a beta that is expected to run until end of January 2016. For the duration of the new service’s beta program you will be able to use it free of charge.

The new version of the service will feature an easier to use and improved UI that replaces what we call DataWorks Forge in the existing service. On December 11th, Forge will become the new IBM DataWorks dashboard and UI.

The new service will continue to support the data load API. The address cleansing and data profiling APIs will no longer be available in the new service going live on December 11th.
