Cognos Analytics samples
There are four categories of Cognos Analytics samples.
Base samples are included with the Cognos Analytics server installation. These samples include all data required to use the samples.
For instructions on using these samples, see Using the base samples.
Extended samples are available when you install Cognos Analytics Samples. This is an extensive set of samples that requires the use of an IBM DB2®, Microsoft SQL Server, or Oracle database to host the sample databases.
For instructions on installing and configuring these samples, see Installing and configuring the extended samples.
The IBM Cognos Analytics web site contains additional samples. These include supplementary samples from previous releases of Cognos Analytics.
The supplementary samples are available from Legacy Samples (https://community.ibm.com/community/user/businessanalytics/blogs/steven-macko/2016/07/15/supplementary-legacy-ibm-cognos-analytics-11-samples).
For instructions on installing and configuring these samples, see Installing and configuring the supplementary samples.
