    IBM - "Update - On April 21, 2023, we announced the discontinuance of this program for Cognos Analytics 11.0.X. We will no longer be providing Continuing Support for this product as of April 30, 2024." (Unless you purchase extended support)

    I've been reading the Cognos12 documentation and there are many references to Cognos11 e.g. Bottom of page
    Distributed server installation - IBM Documentation

    There isn't much time between now and the deadline and I would have thought the documentation would have been updated. I am hoping the Cognos 11 references in the Cognos12 documentation are still relevant and there won't be any surprises.

    Google doesn't find any helpful guides on Cognos12 installations. Probably because Cognos12 is a new product and all Cognos11 install documentation is relevant?

    I've just noticed that if taken to an incorrect IBM Cognos11 link I can switch the product top left and it will load the Cognos12 version. Hopefully that will work for all the incorrect links.
