IBM software licensing agreements put the burden of determining the number of paid licenses required on the customer. As time passes and usage requirements change, the customer must track these changes, reuse paid licenses, or buy additional ones. IBM also changes terms and conditions, and the changes may impact you.
The method of calculating the number of license units is complex. Organizations that underpay face IBM audits and fines. Organizations that overpay are unnecessarily overspending.
