IBM ASL Licensing with the CURSOR Software AG
Do you fly OEM?
When was the last time you flew?
Remember the start, the moment in which the jet engine unfolds its full thrust – you are pressed into your seat, the plane vibrates and the wheels leave the ground. Can you imagine that you rely completely on OEM products in this moment?
Did you know that the market leaders for airliners Boeing and Airbus do not manufacture jet engines?
The thrust comes from Rolls-Royce or General Electric, the wheels are labeled with Continental, Michelin or Goodyear – these are some of the many OEMs - Original Equipment Manufacturer - who provide airplane components - Companies which care with their products for you to start and land safely.
You fly OEM!
OEM is already a common code of practice in the industrial production. Specialization, partnership and trust are the base which makes OEM a concept of corporate success. Not only in an airplane we rely on the performances of our partners, connect building blocks, produce more conveniently and create new things in shortest time.
This principle can also be applied on good software.
If you produce software and technological as well as economic advantages are essential, check the use of IBM components.
With the Application-Specific-Licensing (ASL) IBM opens its software portfolio for the OEM principle.
IBM ASL is IBM Software, especially for the integration into the software of partners.
Unfold the full thrust of the IBM for your software, your customers and your business.

Address quickly recent themes like security or social-media. The IBM Security Portfolio provides comprehensive solutions for the data security. Offer your customers the possibility to use BigData analyzes or IBM Social-Media Analytics, to detect recent trends directly.
One solution from one hand
Your customers stay your customers
Your service stays your service
You distribute the IBM components as a part of your solution and with your license contract. Additional agreements with your customers concerning the IBM components will not be necessary. You are the only licenser.
With this you offer your customer a solution from one hand – your software.
Decide on your own how much IBM you want to reveal. You do not have to hint to the use of IBM components, but you can, if you want to make a statement for your performance profile.
The ASL concept protects you and your market. The respect for you as a key partner for the distribution is a firm part of the ASL concept. The IBM expects no information about your customers. Your customers stay anonym. You are and remain the only contact person for your customers, for your software and also for the IBM products.
The separation between your business and the IBM is ensured by independent ASL Distributors like us. We, the CURSOR Software AG, are your contact person for the acquisition of the IBM Software in all operative concerns.
The principle of integration and protection of your market applies also to the product maintenance. In the course of your solution you provide maintenance and service performances for your customers.
You close maintenance contracts for the IBM components and you acquire updates and support directly from your ASL Distributor.
In contrary to IBM Passport-Advantage or models of other manufacturers the product maintenance will remain up to you and will not be transferred to the manufacturer of the components after a year.
Assure your customer connection with long term support contracts. Participate in the advancement of the IBM products and increase your profit with support- and update maintenance.
