IBM Cognos Announcement Letters

The IBM Announcements Letters are binding messages of the IBM for positioning, licensing and the product's distribution.

Software withdrawal:
IBM Cognos Business Intelligence component features
(IBM Announcement ENUSZP14-0407 - 29.07.2014)
Some replacements availableAchtung-80x80

Effective on the dates listed below, IBM® will withdraw from marketing, part numbers from the following product release(s) licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.

IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence has moved to a more simplified license model with fewer license roles to address customer feedback. This withdrawal moves customers to this new license model where all users will be able to access increased functionality. For example, capabilities such as Cognos Workspace Advanced, which provides more user self sufficiency, will now be available to all roles. Some customers may see changes in their software subscription and support renewals. The software subscription and support team is prepared to help our clients navigate through these changes on their annual renewal anniversary date.

As announced last year, IBM Cognos Business Intelligence will no longer ship IBM Connections. We recognize the ability to collaborate is critical to an organization's success. This migration will provide a full entitlement as outlined below which customers can optionally choose to renew their subscription and support. For more information about IBM Connections, refer to
