Require IBM DataPower Gateway X3 Appliance to support v10.0.1.5

E.SUN Bank adopts a lot of IBM DataPower Gateway as key integration backbond among all of the internal application systems. According to the the enterprise IT standard and policy, the adopted solution and the software is not able to apply newest version and fixpack. Now, IBM DataPower Gateway X3 can only support the newest version - v10.5, it already violate the ground rule and can not be go on production. E.SUN Bank already consider "return the goods" process, because the recent purchased applicances are useless. Also, it impacts the image of IBM products in E.SUN Bank and might not consider to the DataPower Applance further in the future.

    This is a technical impossibility and 10.0.1 cannot be be supported on X3 platform. Given firmware support lifecycle, at this point planning and executing a move generally to 10.5 would be important to start at this time.
