Category: Business Intelligence | Tags: Webinar

This webinar reviews and discusses v11.0.9 new features and functionality including:

  • Latitude/Longitude in Dashboard maps.  IBM introduced latitude/longitude in Report maps in R8, the R9 enhancement brings Dashboards on par with Reporting
  • A visibility control on the map allows a user to turn on/off layers in a multi-layer map to make it easier to read/use
  • Support for Planning Analytics subsets in Reports and Dashboards
  • A full screen mode has been added to Dashboards (one was added to Stories in R8)
  • New X-label Orientation properties in Dashboards allows you to manually control how labels are expressed (automatically, horizontally, vertically, 45 degree angle) on the x-axis
  • The function tab is back in the Expression Builder for Data Module sourced reports (in previous releases you could use all the functions, but the tabs were not displayed)
  • Updated polygons for new French regions in Report and Dashboard maps to reflect recent French Government changes to the regions in their country
  • You can now show 30,000 points in a maps (used to be 3,000)
  • In addition to R9 features, we will also review and discuss best practices for User Stories in Cognos Analytics, which leverage visualizations to share effective insights
