IBM Case Foundation V184.108.40.206 provides the integrated content capabilities for IBM Case Manager as well as for the IBM FileNet® P8 family of offerings. Case Foundation delivers a solid foundation for world class content management and automation solutions, and provides an on ramp for organizations that choose to move from document-centric workflow solutions to the advanced capabilities of Case Manager.
Case Foundation users may now take advantage of the Case Manager Case Builder and Run-time components, which provide the rapid application development environment and sophisticated standard user interfaces. This empowers Case Foundation users to more easily develop content centric workflows. There are license restrictions prohibiting the full set of Case Manager functionality.

If you are an existing customer, you may build new solutions in the Case Manager environment while being able to run your existing workflows without any changes as well.
The use of Case Manager Case Builder and Run-time components also extends to organizations that purchase IBM Production Imaging Edition V220.127.116.11.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through 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 comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
