What are Cognos Analytics Updates

Cognos Analytics Updates

Latest Cognos Analytics Updates

IBM releases Cognos Analytics updates 3 to 4 times a year.  In the last year,  IBM released 11.05 (Nov 2016), 11.06 (March 2017) and 11.07 (Aug 2017).  I would anticipate another release towards the end of 2017 or early 2018 with Cognos Analytics 11.08.

Each release comes with a number of enhancements, additions and fixes. I highly recommend installing each new update as it is released. You do not need to uninstall the current version to move to the new version. It is an over the top installation.  Also important to note, releases are cumulative, you do not need to install the prior release(s) to update to the new release.  For example, if you are currently on Cognos Analytics 11.04, you can go right to 11.07 without having to install 11.05 and 11.06. 

Next, you are thinking, how do I get these updates?  It is easy to download updates for Cognos Analytics. Simply login to your Passport Advantage account and search for the latest release. Download each component and install. You are ready to go!
