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 Samples_for_Install.zip deployment file. After you import the deployment, you will see the following new Base Samples:
