Price change(s): Selected IBM software products

Announcement Letter Number 314-090

August 12, 2014

Overview

Today, IBM® announces increases in monthly license charges (MLC) on select middleware software programs and their features. For the affected programs, the price changes will only apply to the following monthly license charge (MLC) software pricing metrics:  VWLC, AWLC, EWLC, AEWLC and PSLC.  The price increase for a given program will be approximately 4% depending on the features selected. Select CICS for VSE products will receive an approximate 7% price increase on all software billing metrics.

In addition, IBM announces an increase in the monthly license charges (MLC) for z/OS Version 1 and its features which will apply to all software billing metrics available for z/OS. This increase will align the price of z/OS Version 1 with the price of z/OS Version 2 and will represent an approximate 5% increase on z/OS Version 1 depending on the features selected.  Select IBM print software will also receive an approximate 4% price increase on all software billing metrics.

The timing of this announcement allows most clients to understand these changes before budgeting for the following year. Please note that in this instance IBM is giving more than the contractually required ninety days notice of an increase in charges.

IBM intends to continue to provide extended support for each specific generally available version of DB2® for z/OS®, IMS™, WebSphere® MQ for z/OS, Enterprise COBOL for z/OS® and CICS Transaction Server for z/OS software products for at least three years past the date on which the given version is withdrawn from service.  In addition, in accordance with the statement of direction made in announcement letter 313-070 in the third quarter of 2013, IBM has since generally announced the following new versions of MLC programs with prices set equal to the price of the prior versions:

DB2® for z/OS® V11
IMS™ V13
WebSphere® MQ for z/OS V8

Effective January 1, 2015 monthly charges will increase for the following programs
