What is CMP?

Country Multiplex Pricing (CMP) is way of measuring and pricing sub-capacity program MSUs. This sub-capacity offering allows z/OS and z/TPF clients to use their IBM Z capacity within a given country without the constraints of Sysplex aggregation rules and many of the limitations of previous reporting methodologies.
