Description
Bottom rule

IBM Cognos Express continues to provide midsize companies and workgroups with consistent, reliable information to answer critical business questions. With insights drawn from answering these questions, managers can make better, faster decisions to drive greater efficiencies, reduce costs, and identify new growth opportunities while minimizing the impact on IT. Both novice and advanced users can easily leverage the powerful, yet easy-to-use capabilities to encourage broad adoption throughout their organization. Cognos Express provides everything needed for organizations that are starting to expand their business intelligence and planning capabilities.

To meet the increasing demands of midmarket organizations, Cognos Express V10.2.2 is delivered with limited license versions of IBM Cognos TM1 V10.2.2 and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2. Along with the new capabilities and components listed below, organization that have Cognos Express also have immediate access to the latest product enhancements, product corrections, fix packs, and future versions of Cognos TM1 and Cognos Business Intelligence. Additionally, organizations now have the ability to install Cognos TM1 and Cognos BI on separate machines, if desired.

Cognos Express has moved away from a single product install with this release and, as a result, the preset configuration, predefined namespaces, user groups, Cognos Express manager page, integrated backup and restore, and remote client installation will no longer be available. These capabilities are replaced with the Cognos TM1 and Cognos Business Intelligence administrator functionality, providing more flexibility and robust capabilities to midmarket organizations. Detailed documentation is provided to help organizations install Cognos Express V10.2.2 and migrate existing Cognos Express deployments.

Cognos Express V10.2.2 provides the following enhancements.

Business intelligence

  • Simplified end-user functionality for greater user self-service:
    • End-to-end analysis with personal data import for business users
    • Support for customization of Rapidly Adaptive Visualization Engine visualizations in IBM Cognos Report Studio and IBM Cognos Workspace Advanced
    • Create reusable style templates for a consistent corporate identity, including styles, fonts, and colors
    • Interactive maps in IBM Cognos Workspace
  • Simplified deployment with quick setup, allowing users to easily install and configure all Cognos Business Intelligence components.
  • Conformance updates to content store, portal servers, security libraries, web servers, data sources, drivers, and mobile support.

Performance management

  • New Microsoft Excel Client, IBM Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel (CAFE), allows for more advanced report building.
  • 64-bit versions of Micorsoft Excel Client for IBM Cognos TM1 and IBM Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel provide compatibility for organizations using 64-bit Microsoft Excel.
  • IBM Cognos TM1 Web API incorporates Cognos TM1 web objects into custom web applications, portals, and dashboards.
  • SSL support delivers the ability to configure products so they are able to use SSL for data transmission security.
  • Cognos TM1 Package connector can import data to Cognos TM1 from Relational and Open Database Connectivity of Cognos Business Intelligence packages.
  • New conformance with Linux support for IBM Cognos TM1.

    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.


 
Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information number

L-LCOE-9VFRA3: IBM Cognos Express V10.2.2

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf

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).

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 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.

Volume orders (IVO)

No

Passport Advantage applies

No

Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and Technical Support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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 comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
