New Base Samples for IBM #Cognos Analytics 11.0.10

By Samples Team posted Thu March 22, 2018 01:19 PM


There are two types of samples that have been created exclusively for IBM Cognos Analytics.

The Extended Samples require the use of a database and database connections to host the sample Great Outdoors data. They must be installed and configured. Here are the instructions for installing the Extended samples.

We have also created a set of Base Samples in a deployment that can be easily imported in one step. These samples exclusively use Data Modules as their underlying data sources (no cubes, databases, or packages). Here is a video that explains how to find and import the deployment file.

After you import the deployment, you will see the following new Base Samples:

California website visits
This sample showcases the new latitude/longitude mapping functionality in dashboarding. Multiple maps use regions, points, and latitude/longitude to display California website visits data for the fictional Samples Outdoors Company website.

Policy analysis
This sample dashboard has been updated to include a drill-through definition to the "Customer lifetime value analysis" report.

Audit Samples

We have added one new sample audit report in 11.0.10:

Deleted user account report
This sample audit report lists user accounts that have been deleted during a specified time period. It provides information about the deleted user ID, the time deleted, the account type, and the status of the request.

JavaScript Samples

All of the JavaScript samples now use data modules as their data source, rather than the Sample Outdoors Company database. Please visit this Blog post for more details.
