We’d like to inform you that we will be retiring the Tradeoff Analytics service on Bluemix.

Here’s what you need to know:

End of Marketing Date: May 11, 2017

As of May 11, 2017, the Tradeoff Analytics tile will be removed from the Bluemix catalog and you will no longer be able to provision new Tradeoff Analytics instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.

End of Support Date: April 11, 2018

  • For a period of 334 days after the End of Marketing Date, through April 11, 2018, all existing instances will continue to be available on the services dashboard in the Bluemix console. All existing instances will continue to be supported by Tradeoff Analytics.
  • Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted.
  • Please note the US South, Sydney and United Kingdom regions will be affected by this service update.

Hi Sophia,

will the functionality that was provided by the Tradeoff Analytics service be available some other way?
