Why You Need to Upgrade to Cognos Analytics Version 11.1.3

Resource constraints require Enterprise software customers to pick appropriate upgrade candidates from the stream of new versions that software vendors generate.  We advise our clients to select upgrade candidates carefully, and only when a version contains either significant new features with business impact or a substantial body of fixes that improves user productivity and rationalizes the cost of the update cycle.  From time to time, a version stands out and warrants our strongest recommendation for consideration as an immediate upgrade candidate.  Cognos 11.1.3 is such a version.
