IBM® Passport Advantage is the comprehensive software licensing and Software Subscription and Support program from IBM. It is the most flexible and cost-effective way for organizations to reap the benefits of volume pricing for new software, new releases of the latest technology, and technical support to keep businesses up and running.
The IBM Passport Advantage program consists of a general acquisition program for specific software products and their supporting Software Subscription and Support services. It also offers a Complete Enterprise Option (CEO) to acquire groups of products to be deployed across an enterprise on a per user basis.
With CEO bundles (called product categories), you pay a per user charge for the total number of employees in your company who have been assigned a computer capable of running the software. A minimum of 100 or 400 users applies, depending on the specific bundle, for the initial acquisition of licenses in each product category. As your organization grows, subsequent per user license acquisitions can be made in any quantity. With CEO pricing, you are entitled to use as many IBM Domino® Messaging or IBM Domino Enterprise servers within your enterprise as you want, and your organization's employees are licensed for any of the software products listed in the bundle.
The table below lists the included products and the minimum initial user requirement for each of the following bundles that include IBM Lotus Notes® and Lotus Domino software.
