Download Rational Insight

Review the release notes before installing to understand the system requirements and any known issues.

There are two packages in the offering: Rational Insight Data Service and Rational Insight. You need to install Rational Insight Data Service only if you want to read product data from product sources that do not have a built-in XML data service or a REST interface. Read the installation overview for information about the installation package, installation tasks, and installation scenarios.

  1. From the All Downloads tab, download the required packages. At a minimum, you will need Rational Insight disks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the Rational Insight 1.1 Hot Fixes.
  2. From the Optional Programs tab, download any required packages. At a minimum, you will need a database server if you do not already have a supported database server installed.

Follow the Installation Guide

You might want to use the helpful road maps to determine the path best for you.

  1. Extract the contents of all the downloaded .zip files into the same temporary location.
  2. Launch IBM Installation Manager from the disk 1 folder:
    • On Windows: Run the launchpad.exe file.
    • On Linux: Run the file.

The Rational Insight installation guide contains information and tips to step you through the entire process. Read the guide that corresponds to your deployment environment.

Configure the installation

After installing Rational Insight, configure it. This is essential, regardless of the method you chose for installation - whether automatic or manual - although the actual configuration steps are different for the two methods. See the Configuration Guide that corresponds to your deployment platform: Windows (Rational Insight Data Service and Rational Insight) and Linux (Rational Insight Data Service and Rational Insight).

You might also want to configure your security settings and set up your reports for localization.

After you have set up Rational Insight, take a minute to explore the getting started hints and tips based on your role (administrator, data modeler, metrics engineer, report author, or report viewer,) or based on the component you want to use (data warehouse, ETL, XML Data Configuration, or Configuration Manager).
