Service Deprecation: IBM Cloud Product Insights

Share this post:

We’d like to inform you that we are deprecating the IBM Cloud Product Insights service on May 13, 2018.


As we have worked with our clients we have found a strong preference for keeping their usage data on premise as opposed to sending it to a cloud service. With that in mind are delivering the usage metering capabilities via our IBM Cloud Private platform. The same great views and reports are available as part of the metering service contained in IBM Cloud Private.

Here’s what you need to know:

End of Marketing Date: March 21, 2018

As of March 21, 2018 new IBM Cloud Product instances cannot be provisioned. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.

End of Support Date: May 13, 2018

  • For a period of 60 days after the End of Marketing Date, through May 13, 2018 all existing instances will continue to be available on the Services dashboard in the Bluemix console. All existing instances will also continue to be supported by IBM Cloud Product Insights
  • Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted.
  • Please delete your IBM Cloud Product Insights service instances before the End of Support Date.


We encourage you to continue taking advantage of software metering capabilities as well as a host of other features in IBM Cloud Private. Reference the IBM Cloud Private site for the latest information and to download IBM Cloud Private Community Edition

As always, we’re here to help! Reach out to us on developerWorks or Stack Overflow.
