This announcement supersedes Announcement Letter 309-563, dated September 8, 2009.

Value proposition

This offer can be used as an incentive to purchase a POWER™ server to run the selected ISV Software or add net NEW ISV software module.

The offer

You can receive a rebate if you acquire a solution that consists of:

  • one or more selected eligible new* IBM Power Systems server minimum configurations; and

  • one or more eligible new Independent Software Vendor (ISV) software applications, and/or software modules, from the same ISV.

The ISV software application(s) and/or software modules must represent a first-in-location acquisition of the eligible new software application and/or software module from the ISV, and be planned for installation and execution on the eligible new IBM Power Systems server(s) acquired as part of the solution.

In order to qualify as first-in-location, no other licenses for the eligible new software application and/or software module sold by the ISV may have been installed, at any time, in your customer location (single building with a single mailing address).

The amount of the rebate will be equal to the total invoice price of the eligible new ISV software license(s) acquired, up to a maximum rebate that is dependent upon the eligible new server minimum configuration(s) acquired.

There is a limit of one rebate per solution, which includes all components: the eligible new machine serial number(s) acquired, and the eligible new ISV software license(s) acquired. Once included in a solution, components cannot be included in another solution.

In order to qualify for a rebate, a principal of your company, such as the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Information Officer, Chief Financial Officer, or equivalent senior-level executive must complete and sign a certification statement affirming that no other licenses for the eligible software application(s) and/or software module(s) sold by the ISV have been installed, at any time, in your customer location, and the ISV software application(s) and/or software modules acquired under the terms of this offering are planned for installation and execution on the eligible new IBM Power Systems Server(s) also acquired under the terms of this offering.

The acquisition of the server(s) and ISV software application(s)/module(s) must take place within certain specified dates (refer to the Start and/or end dates section).

For a list of eligible products and maximum rebate amounts, refer to the Qualifying/Eligible products section.

* IBM defines new servers as those resulting in the placement of a new machine type serial number. Conversions and upgrades to existing serial number machines do not qualify as new.

Start and/or end dates

There must be no more than six months between the invoice date and/or lease commencement date of the first and last components acquired as a part of a solution.

Eligible ISV software must appear on the list of eligible new ISV software applications/modules in effect on the date of the invoice for the eligible ISV software.

For hardware purchase transactions:

  • eligible minimum configurations must appear on the list of eligible new minimum configurations in effect on the date of the IBM invoice for the eligible minimum configuration, and
  • IBM invoices for eligible minimum configurations must have a date that is on or after the date of the invoice for the first eligible new ISV software license acquired as part of the solution.

For hardware lease transactions:

  • eligible minimum configurations must appear on the list of eligible new minimum configurations in effect on the date of the signed and accepted Leasing Certificate of Acceptance, or lease contract with "Deemed Acceptance", for the eligible minimum configuration, and
  • the signed and accepted Leasing Certificate of Acceptance, or lease contract with "Deemed Acceptance", for the eligible minimum configuration must have a commencement date that is on or after the date of the invoice for the first eligible new ISV software license acquired as part of the solution.

Rebate request forms must be received by IBM no later than two (2) months after the invoice date or lease commencement date of the last new component acquired as part of a solution.

Software Solutions for IBM Power Systems First-in-Location rebate offering

The offer

To receive a rebate, you must have acquired a solution that consists of:

  • one or more selected eligible new* IBM Power Systems server minimum configurations; and

  • one or more eligible new Independent Software Vendor (ISV) software applications, and/or software modules, from the same ISV.

The ISV software application(s) and/or software modules must represent a first-in-location acquisition of the eligible new software application and/or software module from the ISV, and be planned for installation and execution on the eligible new IBM Power Systems server(s) acquired as part of the solution.

In order to qualify as first-in-location, no other licenses for the eligible new software application and/or software module sold by the ISV may have been installed, at any time, in your customer location (single building with a single mailing address).

The amount of the rebate will be equal to the total invoice price of the eligible new ISV software license(s) acquired, up to a maximum rebate that is dependent upon the eligible new server minimum configuration(s) acquired.

There is a limit of one rebate per solution, which includes all components: the eligible new machine serial number(s) acquired, and the eligible new ISV software license(s) acquired. Once included in a solution, components cannot be included in another solution.

The acquisition of the server(s) and ISV software application(s)/module(s) must take place within certain specified dates (refer to the Terms and conditions section).

* IBM defines new servers as those resulting in the placement of a new machine type serial number. Conversions and upgrades to existing serial number machines do not qualify as new.
