Passport Advantage is IBM's comprehensive software licensing and Software Subscription and Support (product upgrades and technical support) offering. It is designed for larger enterprises that may have multiple sites. Passport Advantage gives you more opportunities to obtain better pricing. Passport Advantage offers better pricing for your volume purchases over time and is based on your Relationship Suggested Volume Price (RSVP) level.
Passport advantage express
Passport Advantage Express is designed for single-site, smaller enterprise businesses. It combines the full Passport Advantage product list with the simplicity of transaction-based acquisition. Passport Advantage Express does not require a relationship agreement— each transaction is subject to the terms and conditions effective at the time. There are no points and no aggregating— just a single price level. And with each new license acquisition, you get renewable Software Subscription and Support.
