RE: RSE - Remote System Explorer



fixed

Vern,

Thanks for info and update.
Our BP is not very familiar with RDI, info and pricing is confusing.
We currently have 40 5770WDS licenses.
We currently have 5 programmers, 1 operator, 1 application admin, and 1 i5 admin.
We had a one seat license for RDI back in 2012 when we migrated to P7, but it wasn't included in our maintenance renewal, didn't get renewed, BP slipup.
Below is the pricing I pulled from the site.
Not everyone would need a RDI seat, not sure which way to go at this point.

Detailed price list
Select Part description *IBM price excluding tax
IBM Rational Developer for i RPG & COBOL Tools Authorized User License + SW Subscription & Support 12 Months (D0C5FLL) 968.00

You don't have a choice for replacing SEU - RDi is it.

Having said that, there is an ADTS trade-in program that brought the per-seat cost down around 600 bucks - it is easiest to use this program by going through your BP. Ask them about it - product code 5733-RDG might be the thing.

If you look at WRKLICINF for ADTS, you will likely see a bunch of seats now, this was changed at 6.1. You'll still have lots of ADTS seats for those who need PDM, etc. We had 25 on our LPARs.

Prices vary for different editions of RDi - the price displayed on their site is for a single-year license - it will end up being more expensive in like 2 years.

You also PROBABLY don't want the floating license.

There ARE productivity gains with these tools, AND SEU is no longer being updated.

Good luck
Vern

1) What is RSE (Remote System Explorer)?
2) Is RSE a replacement for PDM?
3) Would RSE be another option to RDI?

As the programmers use more of the new features, the SEU syntax checking frozen at 6.1 is becoming a bigger issue.
Again, looking for SEU replacement options.
RDI was tabled due to cost justification.

Thank You
