Business data All acquired rights (licenses, maintenance, trade-ups, etc.) and customer agreements. Claims give customers the right to use software products of a certain output, version, quantity and either permanently or for a limited period with certain restrictions. Customer agreements may grant rights or impose restrictions, but generally do not include user fees (exceptions apply to customer contracts signed after verification and containing exposure with billing licenses). Secure data space The infrastructure on the client`s site consists of a private space with independent computers without a network connection, used exclusively by accountants to work on confidential customer data. This data will never leave the Secure Data Chamber and the client`s premises. Typically, auditors sign a special confidentiality agreement – with very strong obligations and contractual penalties – before being allowed access to the data in the secure data area. OMTCO recommends constant monitoring of auditors in the secure data area during working hours. OMTCO offers secure mobile data chambers for all businesses. (International) Enterprise Software – Service Option (ESSO/iESSO) Agreement on the customer. (i) ESSO agreements are contractual forms that do not contain user rights, only maintenance and options. Exception: if the ESSO agreement (i) is negotiated following a compliance audit, a settlement plan with settlement, maintenance and recovery licenses may end. The counting plan is then signed with the iESSO contract.
(i) ESSO agreements offer IBM customers advantages, but also disadvantages, including mandatory maintenance. We recommend a thorough analysis to determine whether a particular customer should enter into an ESSO agreement.
