Last year, IBM announced (in somewhat non-committal terms) the end of life for Cognos 10. And while the actual timeline for when IBM will cease support of C10 is not fully clear, the clock is certainly ticking. So rather than viewing your Cognos upgrade as a “lift and shift” to meet an impending hard deadline, you have an opportunity today to re-imagine and re-launch your enterprise analytics on a schedule that works for you to unlock the remarkable new features and functionality of Cognos 11, or Cognos Analytics as it’s known.

IBM Cognos TM1 ships with a digital certificate called an SSL (“secure Socket Layer”) certificate that is used to securely encrypt communication between the TM1 server and its web and non-web (TM1 Perspectives and TM1 Architect) clients. It’s basically a set of files that sit on the TM1 server. These certificates have expiration dates and it was recently realized that the one that ships with TM1 will expire on November 24, 2016 causing any TM1 server using the certificate to stop communicating with its clients. In other words: TM1 will STOP WORKING unless the certificate files are replaced.
