IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence has recently moved to a more simplified license model with fewer license roles to address customer feedback. This migration took place on July 29th, 2014 for all currently supported Passport Advantage IBM Cognos BI customers, allowing users to be able to access increased functionality at no additional license cost (see Figure 1 below). For example, capabilities such as Cognos Workspace Advanced, which provides more user self-sufficiency, are now available to all roles. Some customers may see these changes reflected in their upcoming software subscription and support renewals.
Find out how this new licensing model offers users additional capabilities as they transfer to their new roles for a lower overall cost of ownership by reading guest post by Andrew Belo, IBM Product Manager, IBM Cognos BI on the AnalyticsZone Blog. See IBM’s software withdrawal notice for more details.
