Top rule

International Program License Agreement (IPLA) Product Family

An IPLA product may have one or more versions. The IPLA product versions have a single associated Subscription & Support (S&S). The IPLA product versions together with the associated S&S compose an IPLA product family.

IPLA Trade-up

IBM may offer a trade-up from a replaced IPLA product which provides a replacement IPLA product in a different IPLA product family for a reduced or no charge. The trade-up offering may also be described as a migration or transition offering. The replaced IPLA product license must have an active S&S to qualify for the trade-up.

S&S Terms

The International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (IAASM) (US Form Number Z125-6011, WW Form Number INTC-6011) contains S&S terms and conditions. Amongst S&S entitlements are the ability for the client to acquire new releases or new versions of an IPLA product in the same IPLA product family, if IBM makes them available. IBM's business practice may also grant clients who have active S&S the right to trade up and acquire a replacement IPLA product in a different IPLA product family. IBM will continue to charge clients S&S when any of the following conditions apply:

  • If support is available for the IPLA product
  • If new IPLA releases or versions are made available within the same IPLA product family
  • If IBM offers a trade-up to another IPLA product in a different IPLA product family

Clients may terminate or decline S&S at any time.

IBM's S&S Discontinuance of Support (DoS) Business Practice

IPLA product without a trade-up or migration: Upon announcement of DoS of the last IPLA release in an IPLA product family, the DoS of the S&S will be announced and have the same effective date of the IPLA DoS effective date.

IPLA product with a trade-up or migration: Upon announcement of DoS of the last IPLA release in an IPLA product family, the DoS of the S&S will be announced and have the same or later effective date as the IPLA DoS effective date.

Annual Support Charges (ASC) S&S Billing Practice

IBM will bill ASC S&S charges up to the DoS effective date.

The ASC S&S will normally be converted to a Decline No Charge S&S.
