Overview
Bottom rule

Cognos Analytics V11 enhances the efficiency and capabilities of business users, report authors, and administrators alike through a simplification of and the graduated nature of its user experience. The solution offers more capabilities by allowing users to reduce or eliminate IT intervention for many previous tasks. This gives users more self-service options and ultimately advances the analytic expertise of the enterprise. In the past, users might have utilized a range of different tools to accomplish similar goals. They can now capture insights more efficiently through a guided experience that interprets their intent and supports them with a suggested path, leading where they want to go.

Cognos Analytics V11 helps you do the following:

  • Improve the spectrum and confidence of reporting while using trusted and curated data from existing sources.
  • Reuse content from others and share personal insights at the scale-of-the-business without time-consuming migration.
  • Use hybrid cloud capabilities by working from on-premises and cloud deployments while accessing dozens of data sources (on-premises and cloud-based).

IBM DB2® technology significantly offers increased data protection, scalability, and performance for all its database intensive operations. It is designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently. Greater availability is delivered through enhancements such as online, automated database reorganization. In addition, the increased scalability and the ability to leverage the latest in server technology helps deliver increased performance of backup and recovery processes.

Description
Bottom rule

Organizations require a scalable and governed analytics solution that delivers on simplicity for users without sacrificing confidence in their data. Cognos Analytics is built upon a proven platform that is capable of satisfying enterprise needs for scalability, governance, security, and performance that IT demands while improving user design for self-service and decision making. One environment that connects teams, departments, and large enterprises means no time-consuming and costly migrations or shuffling files between disparate desktop tools. More importantly, Cognos Analytics gives organizations the ability to easily share knowledge across hundreds or thousands of users and their ecosystems as well as power the decisions and actions that drive business results.

The Cognos Analytics solution offers the following features:

Consumption of analytics

  • Customizable user interface that provides a consistent experience on the desktop, tablet, and smartphone
  • Comprehensive search capabilities to help you navigate and quickly access known content and discover new content
  • Automatic selection of the best default visualization based on the types of data
  • Easy access to reference templates and styles to create consistent and professional reports
  • The ability to personalize your analytic environment with guided menus and easier navigation of content, including favorites, notifications, and my content
  • Shared reports and data models that provide a foundation for the creation of new, expanded reports and data models

Authoring of analytics and content

  • More quickly format and style with options right where required.
  • More quickly build interactive reports and preview content (drill, sort, or filter). The solution also enables users to start on the web or go mobile and vice versa.
  • More easily drag and drop data into an environment where the data can be automatically displayed.

Modeling

  • Enable entirely web-based and intent-based modeling using search.
  • Support the ability to quickly create new models or modify existing models, change model attributes, and commit back for everyone to use, and report off of multiple models.
  • Offer the ability to test and validate your models within the same environment.

IBM Cognos Analytics V11 5724-W12 Per Processor Value Unit
IBM Cognos Analytics V11 5724-W12 Per Authorized User


Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.


Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip (socket). A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html
1
An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook
IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Support lifecycle policy updates for Cognos Analytics V11.0

A Maintenance Support Release is a recommended product level for which support, including defect and security updates, will be provided over a specified period of time. A Maintenance Support Release is intended for customers that may need a longer term deployment for their environment. Details of the Maintenance Support Release, including the minimum period of time for which support will be provided, will be made available in advance of its release date.

New functionality, security updates, and defect fixes will be made available through modification releases. Additional support will be made available, as necessary, through fixes on only the most recent modification release and on Maintenance Support Releases. IBM's expectation is that customers will upgrade to either the latest modification release or Maintenance Support Release in order to receive ongoing security updates and defect fixes.

IBM Cognos Analytics V11.0 will optionally support Maintenance Support Releases to provide predictable support through regular, cumulative, in-place fixes for a minimum period of two years from the general availability date.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
