Product lifecycle


Abstract

IBM has made available an alternative software program for use by the Metrics feature within IBM Connections V6.

Content


The Metrics feature within IBM Connections V6 currently utilizes IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2 which is supplied as a supporting program with IBM Connections V6.

IBM has made available an alternative software program for use by the Metrics feature within IBM Connections V6. The alternative to IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2 is provided by down-loading and installing the following program updates for IBM Connections V6 which are now available on IBM fix central.

    • Component Pack for IBM Connections V6.0.0.4
    • IBM Connections V6 Cumulative Refresh 1

IBM support for the IBM Connections v6 Metrics feature is currently provided for both of these alternatives:
    • IBM Connections V6 supporting program IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2
    • Component Pack for IBM Connections V6.0.0.4 used in conjunction with IBM Connections 6.0 Cumulative Refresh 1

Use of the alternative capability requires the installation of both Component Pack for IBM
Connections V6.0.0.4 and IBM Connections V6.0 Cumulative Refresh 1.

On April 30, 2018 the following will occur:
    • Support for IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2 as a supporting program for IBM Connections V6.0 will end.
    • IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2 will no longer be available for download as a supporting program in IBM Connections V6.0.

To continue to receive IBM support for the IBM Connections V6 Metrics feature after April 30, 2018, customers are required to install Component Pack for IBM Connections V6.0.0.4 and IBM Connections V6 Cumulative Refresh 1.

In addition, Component Pack for IBM Connections V6.0.0.4 includes new capabilities for customizing the IBM Connections user experience, the IBM Connections App Registry for storing specifications from IBM Connections Customizer and other sources, and the latest release of the IBM Connections Orient Me home page feature.
