What is an IBM Unlimited License Agreement (IULA)? – An unlimited deployment of specific part numbers within the IBM Analytics Group software offerings.  This offering is for any current customers with update to date S&S that are looking to expand their Analytics footprint with benefits of flexibility and predictable costs.

Benefits of the IULA:

  1. Consolidated and SingleOne Contract for all IBM Analytics (Cognos/TM1) licenses and support

    One Point of Contact for all administration = eCapital Advisors

  2. Contract Term: Predictable spend for 1- 3 years

  4. Annual S&S:During Contract Term (years 1-3) = pre-fixed with no increases

    No Financial True-Up required at contract term end

    Maximum of 5% increase on S&S for years after contract term regardless of amount of software deployed (pending approval and negotiation)

  5. Deployment Flexibility:UNLIMITED License Growth and Support rolled into a single contract.
