All versions stated of an environment presume the initial release of a 3rd party product without any need for patches/service packs or equivalent terms unless stated. Equally, unless stated, IBM Cognos presumes that the 3rd party product has not been configured to disable new features (compatibility modes) and that all patches/service packs are upward compatible for our products from the versions stated.
Software environments for IBM Cognos 8.4.1 on z/OS are listed as Active, Compatible or Not Supported. Environments denoted as active are environments currently tested by IBM Cognos. Although environments denoted as compatible may also be tested, testing may be limited or support may be based on compatibility statements from IBM Cognos partners and third-party vendors. Older releases of environments may transition from active to compatible over time as significant testing would have occurred in previous IBM Cognos releases.
