ITD is planning to update IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (BI) applications from version 10.1.1 FP1 to version 10.2.0 FP1 in August 2013. This upgrade is to keep Cognos software up-to-date and no major changes are expected to effect existing functionality. Improvements include a number of bug fixes, interface changes, and a new optional in-memory-cube technology.

Changes Include

  • Enhancement to Workspace, currently known as IBM Cognos Business Insight.
  • Expanded browser support now includes Google Chrome and Apple Safari. Supported features include report viewing and Workspace.

Tentative Schedule

  • DEV: Sunday, July 14, 2013
  • TEST: Sunday, July 21, 2013
  • PROD: Sunday, August 18, 2013

Additional Information

  • To ensure a successful upgrade, there will be limited testing of core Cognos functions, and features that we know are critical to the Cognos community within state government.
  • We welcome and encourage those using Cognos with access to test or development to review their applications as the updates are applied.
  • Please contact ITD's Service Desk if you have any questions or problems.
