Upgrading to Cognos Analytics 11.1.1
« on: 15 Apr 2019 08:13:25 am »
Hi all,

Has anyone actually taken the leap to upgrading to 11.1.1 on-premise yet? We're currently using 10.2.2 and are looking to upgrade to Analytics this year. The new functionality in 11.1.x is extremely appealing (Watson\predictive analytics, AI, pattern recognition) so we really want to adopt this sooner rather than later, especially as this will be a big piece of work to upgrade from 10.2.2, so really we just want to do it once rather than go to 11.0.13 and then 11.1.x later, but I want to understand how big a risk it really is to go straight to 11.1.1 and has anyone done this?

11.1.1 is a very different experience. While I absolutely recommend upgrading, I also urge caution. The portal system is very different. Cognos connection is gone by default, along with portal tabs. By default new reports use interactive mode, which completely changes the way reports are consumed.

What are you looking for in the upgrade? Are there new features you want to use? Do you have a plan for replacing the portal tabs?
