IBM price adjustments for software effective January 1, 2023


On September 8, IBM published the annual announcement for the adjustment of prices. We will keep it short: Informix and Db2 customers have to be prepared for a solid increase of +8% at the turn of the year.

Price Change(s): 2023 Global Price Harmonization
Announcement Number: 323-455
Announcement Date: 2022-09-08
Effective Date: Jan 01 2023


Effective January 1, 2023, IBM® is making modest price changes which will improve worldwide price harmonization across the software product portfolio. Passport Advantage® Express Suggested Retail Prices (SRP) and Passport Advantage Suggested Volume Prices (SVP), as applicable, for the following categories of products, are included in this announcement:

  • Passport Advantage Eligible Products from the IBM Automation, IBM Data and AI, Transaction Processing Software, IBM Security, IBM Sustainability Software and IBM Customer Care.
  • Media and documentation packs associated with the Passport Advantage Eligible Products.
  • Selected other non-Passport Advantage Products.

For most products, the following price harmonization changes will apply: 8% increase Worldwide.

Exceptions include:

  • 3% increase in Switzerland
  • 15% increase in India, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Sweden.

For a small number of products, price harmonization adjustments will deviate slightly from the assumptions above. In some cases there will be a higher price increase or a price reduction, but overall most of the price changes will not exceed plus or minus 5%. (Remark, our verification gives an average change of +8%, as described above).

For affected eligible products and their associated media and documentation packs, price harmonization changes are applicable for all eligible product offerings, including Software License and 12-months Software Subscription & Support (S&S), Software S&S Renewal, Software S&S Reinstatement, and Trade up License and 12-months Software S&S, and Subscription Licenses.

Price changes are applicable for Software S&S Renewals pertaining to coverage period beginning on or after January 1, 2023 regardless of when payment is received.

Announced pricing will be available on September 8, 2022 from IBM or from your IBM Business Partner.
