IBM Cognos 11.1.4 is here – October 2019

IBM Cognos released Cognos 11.1.4 version today. I have listed the major items ( IMO that is) below. 

One of the significant items they are making available with this release is integration with D3, Highcharts, iCharts…etc. This is very cool stuff. The only drawback is that you would need know Javascript to make this integration work, but there are samples to get us started.
