Cognos Analytics 11.1.1 Now Generally Available!

By CHRIS MCPHERSON posted Mon November 26, 2018 10:11 PM


We are very pleased to announce the general availability of Cognos Analytics 11.1.1 on-premise as of November 23, 2018.  It is now available for download from Passport Advantage.  This long anticipated on-premise release follows the SaaS version that was made available in the US Data Center at the end of September (other Geos to follow).


This 11.1.1 release of Cognos Analytics is truly a game changer for IBM Business Analytics.  We have made significant investments in the areas of data exploration, modelling, reporting, dashboards as well as delivered more than 75 of the most voted-on RFEs (request for enhancement).  Most exciting though, are the new AI capabilities…natural language data discovery, related insights, predictive capabilities and advanced pattern detection.  As exciting as these new capabilities are, this is just the first step in our journey of building AI and machine learning into every aspect of the Cognos Analytics product to help our users gain insights and value from their data and to be the best decision makers in the world.


A release of this scale doesn’t come together without a tremendous team effort.  In addition to the Offering Management, Development, QC, Documentation and Release Management teams, we had a huge amount of help from the Technical Sellers who collectively spent countless hours testing early builds of the product and providing feedback.  A special thank you also goes to our EAP (Early Access Program) customers and partners.


So, please… join us on this journey to AI and download Cognos Analytics 11.1.1 today!
