  • 1. IBM TXSeries v.s BEA Tuxedo Guide to competitive distributed Transaction Processing Monitor selling
  • 2. <ul><li>CICS transaction servers (Transaction Management System or Monitor) </li></ul><ul><li>are IBM’s premier Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) systems that: </li></ul><ul><li>- Shield complexity of platforms / terminals : runs applications written in COBOL, C, C++, PL/I and JAVA </li></ul><ul><li>- Provide a rich set of resources and management services: accesses customer data and optimizes the operating system usage, e.g., 2 phase commit </li></ul>Transaction = a Unit of Work What we do every day… e.g. ATM, buy a train ticket, short conversation, hand over money, take ticket CICS family of products includes transaction servers, tools and connectors - heavily investing in SOA <ul><li>TXSeries for Multiplatforms is a CICS transaction server </li></ul><ul><li>on AIX, Windows, HP and Solaris: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In 2006 it achieved 30% Year on Year growth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A number of c ompetitive wins from BEA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A number of million $ deals in key markets and industries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(AP, Gov’ment, Banking etc) &amp; many mid market wins </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Influenced million $ of cross-sell, up-sell to WAS, MQ, DB2, development tools etc in 2006 </li></ul></ul>IBM’s Transaction Processing Middleware C ustomer I nformation C ontrol S ystem
  • 3. Competitive Successes Against Tuxedo Many example successes in <ul><li>Banking, Public Sector , Telecom…. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the client worries and complaints include: </li></ul><ul><li>Tuxedo can charge too much (initially and increases even more later on in the cycle) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IBM has a competitive solution in the same space and can be much cheaper </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Instead of buying more and more Tuxedo – is it worth going onto the CICS mainframe? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>With better tools / complementary options TCO of IBM’s solution can be much cheaper </li></ul></ul>Leverage relationships with sales and key Business Partners, Successful workshops / PoCs – expertise and support from local and Lab assigned SME Better product pricing model, and total cost of ownership of overall solution based on TXSeries CICS
  • 4. Basic Features Comparison with Tuxedo Profile: two 4-way pSeries boxes with Power 5 as the chip Tier 4 server price = $350,000 standard Profile: two 4-way pSeries boxes with Power 5 as the chip 16 Cores x 100 value unit x $191 per value unit = $305,600 standard Basic Pricing Much less sophisticated app dev and mgt tooling WebSphere Developer for zSeries (TXSeries is packaged as Testing Component for it), Rational Tools, JCA tools, COBOL, EGL tools all support CICS API Application Development BEA offers one distributed transaction processing monitor for all business sizes and transactional needs, on distributed platforms. <ul><li>IBM has a portfolio of mainframe and distributed CICS servers for different business requirements: </li></ul><ul><li>TXSeries (distributed CICS) is a leader in the distributed transaction monitor marketplace and intergrates seamlessly with:- </li></ul><ul><li>CICS Transaction Server for z/OS is the worlds most sophisticated transaction server, consistently innovating for over 35 years. </li></ul>Selling messages AIX, Windows NT, Windows 2003, Solaris, HP-UX, Itanium AIX, Windows 2003, Solaris, HP-UX (Linux on iPRPQ, Itanium mid 2007) Server platforms Tuxedo API CICS API Programming API COBOL, C, C++, PL/I COBOL, C, C++, PL/I and Java Programming Languages Version 9.1 Version 6.1 Latest product versions BEA TUXEDO TXSeries (CICS)
  • 5. IBM Silver Bullets <ul><li>IBM offers a portfolio of transaction servers and a superior and complete solution: family integration of CICS on distributed and mainframe, and WebSphere (WAS, MQ), cross platform common API; superior connectors and tooling (CTG, RAD, WDz, DB2) </li></ul><ul><li>Lower prices throughout the cycle: lower licence charges, flexible pricing structure, better application development (Rational, WDz, EGL, IBM COBOL support) </li></ul><ul><li>High double digit growth for TXSeries (TXSeries CICS 35% WR growth in 2006 ) and Tuxedo seeing 23% decline in 2005 and “adverse effect” decline trend in 2006. (Back up evidence – see annual report and various news items on recent stock market warning.) </li></ul>Key Messages: <ul><li>Total Cost of Ownership : lower licence &amp; maintenance charges, lower memory usage cost, solution cost </li></ul><ul><li>Cross platform API : subset of superior CICS API, and cross platform </li></ul><ul><li>SOA Integration and solution: with CICS on the mainframe, WebSphere, and superior tooling </li></ul><ul><li>Simplified usage : DCE/Encina removal, WUI admin console; fewer TCP ports for server, no need to restart running applications when install/upgrade </li></ul><ul><li>Powerful development tools : Rational, WDz, EGL, IBM COBOL </li></ul><ul><li>XA Capabilities: 2 phase commit for multiple XA resource managers </li></ul><ul><li>Larger system development : multiple app process/servers, scaling up to mainframe deployment </li></ul><ul><li>Additional PL/I and Java language support </li></ul>Areas to Focus on when selling against Tuxedo:
