          Connect:Enterprise


Effective on the dates in this announcement, IBM Sterling Connect:Enterprise® for UNIX™ is withdrawn from marketing. Part numbers for this program are withdrawn with no replacements.

For existing customers, support renewal part numbers remain active until April 30, 2015 to extend support contracts through April 30, 2016. This extension gives customers time to work with their IBM or partner representative to plan their migration to IBM's strategic replacement product: IBM Sterling File Gateway. Customers not contacted by their IBM or partner representative are encouraged to contact their representative. Representatives can help customers to review their current implementation and usage of IBM Connect:Enterprise for UNIX and to create a transition plan to IBM Sterling File Gateway.

End of support is also announced. In accordance with Support policies, support services continue for current IBM Sterling Connect:Enterprise for UNIX customers until the effective end of support date, April 30, 2016.

IBM Sterling File Gateway, introduced in 2007, is IBM's strategic replacement for IBM Sterling Connect:Enterprise for UNIX. Sterling File Gateway, IBM's solution for file-based B2B exchanges, provides innovative functionality in a scalable architecture with simplified onboarding, advanced automation, edge-based security, and easy extensibility. Learn how you can consolidate all your B2B integration use cases and message patterns on a single integration gateway and lower your total cost of ownership by contacting your IBM representative or visiting:

http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/file-gateway/

On or after that date, you can no longer obtain this program directly from IBM. You can obtain this program on an as-available basis through IBM Remarketers.
