Cognos 11.1.4 includes improvements in many areas of the tool, such as the report authoring interface, dashboards, data exploration, and file upload features. For a quick overview of what has changed, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwnCqCKiYQ4. More in-depth information can be accessed at https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEP7J_11.1.0/com.ibm.swg.ba.cognos.ca_new.doc/c_ca_nf_11_1_container.html.

For report writers, the most apparent change will be the new report authoring interface that intends to simplify and streamline the process. We’ve updated our training documents to reflect these changes to help you through this transition, which can be accessed in the knowledgebase at https://service.uoregon.edu/TDClient/2030/Portal/KB/ArticleDet?ID=65125.
