As a Business Analytics Coach, I’m asked about errors or issue with Cognos software. Sometimes it is user error and other times it is a defect in the software code. Look… we all wish software came out of the box perfect, but the reality is that updates are necessary and important to keep up with. IBM typically releases a Cognos fix pack every 90 -120 days on most products. I thought I would save you all time and provide the latest updates and links to each fix pack. If you are seeing errors or issues, you should make sure you have installed the latest fix pack. Typically, the latest one would contain all of the fixes from the previous fix packs.
