Cognos Analytics Upgrade Available Through December 31st

Plan your upgrade to Cognos Analytics with TechD today!

You might be aware that IBM recently announced end of support for Cognos BI 10.2.x on April 30, 2018.  That means that IBM will no longer provide technical support for this version of Cognos BI without purchasing extended coverage, at a premium.  What does that mean for you?  It means that now is the time to put a plan in place to ensure you can continue to deliver critical data to your business users without interruption.  Additionally, there are many more benefits to upgrade to Cognos Analytics today:

  • Smarter Self-Service through a faster, intuitive user portal with new functionality for business users to upload data, join sources, and author reports in a unified authoring interface
