Thank you, everybody.
Thanks for taking the time to attend this session, which hopefully will be off.
Value to all of you.
And as the name says that moving from 11.0 to 11.1 then having changes and that is what I intend to highlight during this
Before that, I would
Like to pass on the mantle back to Jimmy, to give you an introduction to exit certified as a cleaning organization. So Jimmy Would you like to take over for this slide please.
user avatar Jimmy Yount
Share. Sure. Just wanted to present to you that access verified can cover all of your it training needs that we are an IBM global training provider excellence and we just received that this year for 2018
The platform that you're currently using is very similar to our I MVP platform that will teach all of our remote classes through. So if this is something that
Is acceptable you we please feel free to sign up in the future for more courses with us.

Okay, thank you. Thank you, Jimmy. So everybody I know there are quite a few people attending this webinar and some of you might have already had trainings with us. And as the world just kept coming IBM
Released courses on various versions and those courses did not address all the versions, but there were changes which are done during
The words of lease and previously Templeton 10 IBM used to give a new release, maybe once every year, year and a half.
Based on when enough changes. Are they are they want to upgrade the product, then they will release a new words but from Watson 11. They shoved into quarterly releases.
And the quarterly releases were basically based on the feedback of the people, the water lilies will input that but from 10 point 2.2 which are the latest version before 11 to 11 basically what Cognos did was but IBM did was they
Change the user interface, not so much the working of the software, but the user interface was changed.
And as the point is is kept coming every two months.
Customers are in 11.0 somebody for someone at seven. So I would just like to have a spectrum of the people attending what version you're on. So I'm just going to open a ball for everybody to just
Let me know what kind what version are currently on so just if you can just keep this ball on for about 30 seconds if you can just follow it.
Okay, I see that approximately 67% of the people have already bought in so
Here are the results. So we see that about 16% are on other words, in which, which would I won't say it is even before 10, it could be possible. Some people are still using more than eight
Of course, the recommendation would be to come to the later version, but they are always their own reasons why they are there, but our 10% are on 11.1 and that's everybody's on various versions of 11.0. So, this I think that this webinar would be false value to majority of you.
And 11 point 0.0 is pulling at 20% so that I would say 11 point zero is our release from where you do want to upgrade the reason for that is I would explain that in a minute. Now, before that, I would also like to have a little bit more insight into
Would be considered as an improvement is definitely required. So you might find the floating toolbar distracting analytics 11.0
Wow, that is almost even how you say it is distracting half of you say it is not distracting. And the reason why I put this question out is
This is one of the things which during the classes I did get a feel that people said, well, how we can drill these tool bars that fortunately has been fixed in merchant lab.
Now I just one more question, I would like to put to you before I move ahead with the
So, that is also one thing which I don't know whether
Most of you noticed, or you did not notice it has the properties was IBM rearrange the room. The property is removed at different places.
To find those properties. Do you find it difficult to find previously commonly used properties but moved to a place where it was difficult to find it.
That is also almost even by
Majority of you 58% find that it was difficult to find the properties. Wow. Okay. So let me give you a background of what has happened from 10 point 2.22 11.0 to
10 1212 was a version, which was coming from version one towards an age and as IBM was losing their we're sticking to a user interface which did not change much.
But after 10 42.2 when IBM moved to 11.0 they decided to completely rearranged the room. That's what I say user interface. So, that is what it essentially was of course there were some new capabilities coming in, but mostly it was the user interface design.
When 11.0 was released on with the training was also released IBM data clean up the user interface.
And when it came up the user interface is moved things to different places. And it was a quantum jump for the people from 10 point 2.2 to 11
And those of you who are still on 10 point 2.2 or before. Be prepared that we're coming towards 11 whether you go to 11.0 or you go to 11.1 will be a
Place where the room has been completely rearranged and when the remaining was done. There were interface changes.
So the sidebar team so 10 point 2.2 to 11 was a big change, but from 11.0 to 11.1 also, there have been changes and that is what the main
Reason of this webinar is but fortunately in version 11.1 what IBM has done, they have almost brought back the grouping of the properties and the grouping of the fee look and feel of the user interface which was in 10 point 2.2, of course, with the new
Arrangement of the user interface so sidebar changes in order to 11.0 what we had was in the sidebar, we had different icons for
The package, the source toolbox pages and quit. It's not that was taken from 10 point 2.2 and 10 point 2.2 also we used to have a bar in the middle where we had a
toolbox. We had the paid Explorer, we have the query explore to was a force was at a different place. So the sidebar had all those icons in version 11.0
Over the course of changing from 11 point 0.0 to 11.0 point 13 which is the latest release for 11.0 IBM data chain. Some icons and learn point zero. They used to be only one icon for navigate, but in 11 point 0.7 that chain so 11.0 point 13 or 11.0 point x that is how the sidebar was
But 11.1 there are no icon separate icons for package toolbox pages and queries, everything has come in insurmountable objects and that dynamically changes based on what you're trying to do.
If you are in the queries being you would see the insert devil logic for queries. If you are in the variable, Spain, you will see that sort of objects for variables. And if you are working with a report in a sort of an object, you will see the
Package and the toolbox. So that dynamically changes based on
context where you are then searchable object will show you what is available. So that is a good thing, it will automatically change for you and 11.0, you would still be required to click on some extra clicks to get to where you want it to.
So the other interface changes one bigger one is the navigation menu which is new in version 11 so that's icon in the sidebar.
Which we have a DNS query etc have been moved into one navigation menu.
So that navigation menu is always available and then you can navigate to the pages from here, go to prom pages queries classes were able to everything I've been made into this one navigation many which is new and 11.1 it was non existent and 11.0
So tools are creating an underpinning for which I did put our poll also all that is now available in origin 11.1 1.0 what used to happen was you click on an object, a tool bar to bar would appear, but that toolbar would appear on place of its own choosing.
You cannot control the size you could not control the place where it is. And sometimes, because even difficult to find out where it is, it might hang right at the bottom of the page.
It was like a large object to learn my board the bottom. Sometimes it might go at the top. And not only that, based on your monitor resolution.
The toolbar for the same object might appear at different places to find a place where it is optimal to show, per se. As for the software and that
To my mind, they become distracting or annoying for some people say, Well, where does the toolbar. Go and you're looking for the toolbar.
And that is what my point says it led to a common complaint, of course, it's very good to know that about half of you feel that that's okay, wherever it is, I will
Find it, but it was a common complaint, which has been resolved in Virginia 1111
Whenever the word the toolbar is by default pinned on the top of the page. Now that again as I said emulates what was there emergent 10 point 2.2
Now in depth want to point to the toolbar used to be always there at the top and no matter where you are, the tool bars always wore the same. The only difference was the icons were enabled or disabled based on what was available.
So that also was a little bit confusing to some people. Sometimes they say why. Can I click on that icon. It is not available.
But what IBM has done in this is the toolbar explain like 10 point 2.2 but only the icons, which are available or applicable would show in the toolbox. So toolbar size would keep changing
And icons will be appearing or disappearing from the toolbar based on the object which is selected, but there is one icon which is new to the left most icon is for the pinning
My default, it is playing, but if you click on there, the toolbar will get out of pain and if you unveil it would start floating like 11.0
But one more thing even notice if you're unveiling the toolbar, then some of the icons from the toolbar. For example, cut, copy and delete.
They will be moved to the more icon, they would no longer be in the floating toolbar and that also sometimes can lead to confusion. So
Be aware that if the toolbar is playing it will always be at the top of the page, the icons could be different if it is underpinned than some of the icons might be found in the More button and more button is always the last
And one more thing and 11 you might 11.1 you might find is when the toolbar goes expanded and contracted based on the icons, it might sometimes go behind
The properties window. So you might need to close the Properties window to see the toolbar and I'm not sure that as the new words keep coming up 11.1
The point is, is that also might be dissolved by IBM. So it is just 11 point 1.1 the very first one I say that the toolbar does go behind the Properties window, some time and you need to close that
Application model redesign so that also has been changed. So in the application bomb to the blue bar on the top there had been some changes. So there used to be a page views icon which was new for version 11.0
And 11.0 that I don't like it. I was there are two separate views. Now that hadn't been moved into a many in 11.1 we're discussing the seabed design. It's a drop down menu where you can change the
And the reason why that was done is in the 11.0 if you click on the paid us icon and you change the view, you would never have any indication on the page, what
Page views are working in audio and paid design mode. Are you in page.
Preview mode or if you are in bed structure, more so you will not know what more do you are working in, but in 11.1 wants to select a moral that would keep showing ever talk to your big so you know that the one more you are working in
And also in the More button there were some properties which were available. The three doors is leaning the More button it's there at various places. In verse 11.0 and 11.1
So that more icon had some properties which has now moved to a new icon called the Settings icon. So I will introduce that to you a couple of slides down
And one more thing turned in chain in the More button in 11.0 there was an option for locking unlocking
And if you unlock your report. There was no indication on the page that you're now working in the unlock more which was visible of emergent 10.2 so in 11.0
There is a lot new lock icon which has been added. So you unlock your report, you will keep seeing if you're working in a lot more or unlawful.
Navigational differences that the differences are. When you are in 11.0, as I said, the navigation was a little more, you can say
I won't use the word clumsy, but it was a little more involved. So when you were navigating. So for example, if you go to the queries.
Option. You go to the query explorer and you're on a particular query to add objects, you had to, again, click on the tool.
Box icon to see what object can be added that in 11.1 is automatically selected, the moment you go to queries from the navigation menu.
Only toolbox is available and you see what objects are able to be added, but that again emulates what was in 10 point 2.2
So what I've done is properties why they've gone back to the way things weren't any point to point to because people are used to that.
And that was right that like that in version eight also the previous versions. So in 11.1 they have gone to a place where people with prior knowledge.
Will become comfortable again 11.0 the apple cloud was this term and now it is again being set so that people can draw from their previous experiences.
Similarly, when you're going to variables pain point zero once you go to variables you again need to click on the tool box icon to see what objects can be added in 11.1
The moment you go to variables automatically toolbox is selected and the objects which are available to be added or automatically selected for you.
Now rearrangement of properties and 11 point 1.1 some properties have been reading. And again, as I said,
from Denver to point to the properties which are scattered at different places. And that's one of the questions I had also
Do you find it difficult to find the properties have, have you said yes. I hope you said no, but properties were arranged and pleased at different places.
For example of tabular data option in 11.0 you right click the query you go to the tab tablet option there, whereas in 10 point 2.0 you had many drop down menu could say you tabular data in 11.1 now they've added a toolbar for the query is also where you can look up data is available.
And expand references in level point zero right click the query you see expanded references. If you are doing any joins or unions and the queries.
To see what queries joined to frame the final query what queries or union to make the final query that expand references was available in the right kick my butt 11 point 1.1 now it is available from the queries menu which is just like the page views, there is a quiz manuals also
So here is
That even matter properties and 11.0 you right click the query, you will see various options like you tabulate Isaiah and expand References
Looking at all queries projected query. So that is available in the right click menu for the queries. Now in 11.1 you have got a menu on the right side.
You're seeing all queries predicted queries data sources expand references and those have been moved from the right click menu pops the query.
Data data is available, right click menu also like 11.0 but there is an icon also available.
In the toolbar, which is for the quiz. So with 11.1 IBM is dying to become more intuitive so that users.
For authors don't have to struggle to find where do I go to find that. So they are trying to go back to arrangement of 10 point 2.2 so people working with 10 point 2.2 are able to relate to 11.1 and also making it more intuitive visually in 11.1
That is that the white calm, which has been added in 11.1
I mean, there's no name given to it, but it could be called setting that could be called manage. So that is an icon just added
And most of the properties like opening report from Clipboard not 11.0 that was available a right click menu for the report. So if you right click the report.
Then you see open report from Clipboard copy report from Clipboard. So that was place at a different place, and also on the more modern you see options locked menu.
Conditional styles clearing parameters. So that was all in the more money. So these to have in the mind and added at one place where the settings menu options have gone there and
Validate options open for from clipboards all the admin rearrange the properties are there for their employees at one place instead of multiple places.
new capabilities have also been added to 11.1
Good morning, just to repeat a table.
That was not available 11.0. It was not even available in 10 point 2.2 so if you select an entire list, then from the More button.
For the toolbar, you will have an option can work list to repeat a table, we did have an option of converting a lead to a cross tab, which was pivotal list look roster be an icon for that also that option is available since version eight
But this is a new capability added convert list to repeat a table so much you can order to repeat a table, you can then manage the repeater table to add more columns or more rose to it to
Make sure that you are able to quickly create a repeater table. But of course, when you go to convert leads to a repeater table every column will have its own
Heading also which again, you may or may not want. So you can start with a new repeater table yourself or the list is already there. You can convert and then tweak the repeater table to your requirements.
That is another new capability that is something which
Is a guided, Report Layout, that is switched on by default. And sometimes people working from 11.0 11.1 that comes almost like a shock.
And the reason why that was added was to make the environment more user friendly for business partners. Now in 11.0 what was
There was you could add objects to the left of an object or the right of the object and certain objects like blogs or tables if you add them to the left.
They will automatically go to the top. If you add them to the right, they will go to the border and initially that was also confusing to people say, well, I'm adding it to the left wise and going to the top. When adding to the right pricing, go to the bottom.
Technical people are comfortable with that. But the business users were trying to create reports were getting baffled by this
So by using guided, Report Layout, which is switched on by default, you can add objects to left, right, top or bottom
So in the screenshot here I've added a block to the left of US list to the right of a list bottom of the list and top of the list. You can add objects, where you want
So that is an advantage of guided to port layout, but it can sometimes become confusing because as you're dragging and dropping objects, it starts dynamically changing your screen.
And I don't know how many of you have sounded confusing, but
I haven't gotten the feedback and the classing why I'm not able to place the object exactly where I want it, but that feedback mostly has come from TECHNICAL PEOPLE WHAT YOU WILL STILL ADDING objects in 11.0 or in 10 point 2.2 so
Thankfully, that's a setting in the options of reporting application and you can six that off. So if you sit there all then they can emulate the 11.0 or 10 point to point to behave
So that is I will reserve my Q AMP a
Little bit later, I would like to show you before that.
Two videos which are done. What I've done is to give you a look and feel of the environment. I haven't recorded two
Videos one on 11.0 and one on 11.1 and I've taken an activity from the class. So those of you who have attended the classes with us would recognize immediately that the activity is taken from the class.
So that is one simple activity that will be about five minutes video where we are just creating a report, and when I create a report.
The creation of the report is exactly the same in both 11.0 and 11.1 but once you are in the interface.
You would see the difference is, like, on the left side you see the navigation icons. There are four icons are there, and also the application bar on the top right hand side you see the
Application bar icons.
React new package.
Report that might be a little bit monotonous for you just adding those columns to it just getting to the report once you're on the report and this activity is from conditional formatting.
Now you notice the toolbar. It is coming up as a add the columns for a select a column, the toolbar expands and contracts and it's floating. So once I select another column you see floats over the screen, it goes to different places. You don't have any control over that. As we work
With the options. Now notice, if I click on the queries and I go to the variables.
Even when you click on variables. I don't have a way to add up.
So that for that I need to click on the toolbox.
just creating a simple string variable.
To create two values for this variable.
And those of you who have attended any training with us would create, whether it's 11.0 or 11.1. This is an activity in both the trainings.
And the Properties window 11.1 is open by default in 11.0 disclosed by default.
So now the toolbar has come over the objects that is also not only floating on the tee it comes sometimes covered the object. So that also
Results in some unnecessary clicking to just move the toolbar out with a baby.
So now that I'm in a conditional formatting mode, only a box comes in and then disappears after that I got no indication on the page that I'm in the conditional formatting mode.
So that it's easy to forget in 11.0 that I'm working in conditional formatting mode because nothing on the screen tells me that that has been handled in 11.1
Simple conditional formatting activity.
She's a paid us icon. That is, it was an 11.0 and if you change the page view, you will not know what page you're working in, and you see the lock icon is done to the more so if you're unlucky report, you would not know whether the report is working a lot more or unlock more
And when I click the query you see the view tabular data is under the right click menu for the query.
So that was the activity for awards and 11.0. Now let's do the same thing in 11.1
I did exactly the same thing and we'll be able to notice the differences between 11.0 and 11.1 icon navigation icon. There's only one Insert Table objects those four are missing.
And then the top right hand corner. Also, you see that I don't have paid us icon and under the More button. There are not that many options. So that is the new icon for global options.
And also under record you see there is a enabling guided, Report Layout, I will talk about that in the video a little bit later also
Notice the toolbar. It is there at the top of the screen and is pinned right now.
And icons will only change based on the object is currently selected, there is a navigation menu.
Which is always there at the top of the page and you click on there, you will be able to navigate through the objects of the report.
So if I go to variables you see that the toolbar boxes automatically selected. I don't need to click on the tool box icon to know what objects can be added to the variable state.
The conditional formatting. There is a new icon for conditional state. So they have when you select a value the color of the icon would change from green to blue.
So once it's activating the icon changes to blue. So I keep knowing that I am in the conditional formatting mode until I clear the condition state the icon would stay blue
When you say here conditional states the icon will go gray and I moved out of the conditional formatting.
There is no difference. The result is exactly the same as 11.0
You see the page design that's a drop down now. And also, you notice the icon for lock on the left off page design.
And the more. There are no properties there the properties have been moved and the printing of the toolbar. So if I click on that pin and pin icon and once I until the toolbar starts floating
And if I pin it goes back and you'll notice the icons coming into the toolbar.
That is a new option convert list to repeat your table.
Once I can click on that list is converted to a repeater table and I can change the rows and columns. After the Peter tape.
Wow, that was 11.1 activity. Hopefully the differences were clear in the two. And before I go to the Q AMP a session. That is one last fall, which I want to open up, which I'm just going to do right now.
Okay. Good thing it is gone. Exactly 5050 that's really great.
So I would then open to question and answer. If you have any questions you can put that question in the
Q AMP a window.
user avatar Jimmy Yount
It does look like we do have some questions in there so
default user avatar Unknown Speaker
default user avatar Vinay Gupta
Okay, some of the questions will be addressed by you. Also, Jimmy. So the first one is, what about cross tabs in this new version. The cross tabs are I mean there's no change in the cross tab behavior in this new version so
I don't say that.
There's no change in the cross tab behavior here.
And next question is when the two values pin by default. Yes. When you start on a new report the tool bars which are coming. They are painted by default, you can unfriend them if you want. And when you want when them they would start uploading
The print option for the report option and depends upon if you have configured printers in your environment, then only will be able to see the print option of the
Normally what is done is, and that's what I've seen every consultant and various places.
If you want to bring the report, you will not print the next CML report you will print it in Excel or PDF. So once you run the report in Excel or PDF. You can save it on your own machine and can use your operating system printer to print the report.
Well, that question is again the same the toolbar has been by default.
Exploration teacher, that's a new feature to there. That's not yet in the training the exploration Peter is
More statistical in nature. When you want to explore your data and find out how your data items related to each other.
What data items have an effect on what measure icon that you have that is more statistical and prediction in nature. So, that is what the exploration pizza days. So you create a new exploration and you're
Just like analysis to do used to let you do analysis to get insights, your data exploration, does the same thing, but it also tries to let you predict and also can let you give
English level question thing. Well, how does this measure effectiveness. Another measure so Cognos and that is an integration of Watson into IBM analytics.
Hopefully we'll find that in the future trainings.
Okay. One other question to me was, where can they find the link to this video presentation. So, that is, I believe, is more for you to answer.
user avatar Jimmy Yount
Yes, I did answer that in the Q AMP. A just give everyone a heads up on that one. We will be sending out a communication all the registrations with a link for the video recording for today's presentation.
default user avatar Vinay Gupta
Okay, there are there are more questions coming in. So one is to select the language to run the report without changes to your profile settings. Now,
Run the report in a language is more involved than just changing the language, your baggage has to handle the multilingual data once that is done, then yes, you can run a report in
Language, of course, the profile settings, based on if your, if your administrators stick you from changing the language of course then you will not be able to. By default, yes, you can run a report in any language.
And be mindful there in 11.1 11.0 the administrator capability has gone way too granular they can even control what menu items you can see what
options. You can see. So all that can be controlled. So if you're an administrator controls your ability to change the language, then you will not be by default, you can
So attention to the dashboard. So there would be some changes to the dashboards that you will be able to get that changes and
Stories and dashboards are new features coming in 11.0 they are doing certain changes but specific changes. I will not address here if you want. There is a
Half the selfies getting available for the dashboards. But that is available for 11.0 only I didn't see your training for that for for 11.1 but I can double check for you.
Any other questions. Okay.
Also, I mean I were to your question. You are you going to run options there. You can change the
Language in that you want to run the report. Yes, it is very similar to version 10.2 when you click on the run button and the drop down there is the last option for sure. Run options when you go there you will see languages drop down. You can change the language.
So you can do that, but that would only give you results. If your packages multilingual
Does IBM. How many documents showing changes if that was, I would just
Well, they, I want to say that there is no the changes. If you go to IBM side you will find any particular version, there is always a list of the changes in that version.
But they don't have a one consolidated document. It says that these are the changes. So there is no one place to go after this webinar will be moved.
Any changes in the way Gemma is implemented, while
Well, Brandon. I do see your question is that I can see submit any questions here. Can you see this. Yes, I can see this easiest question wanted
Okay, we are almost at the top of the hour. Five more minutes left. And there are no more questions. Hopefully everybody
Gains to some extent from this webinar and I would pass on the mental back to Jimmy
user avatar Jimmy Yount
Thank you, as you said, we are at the end of the prison presentation. So thank you everyone for attending and I see we have one more question just popped in there for you. But if you're
default user avatar Vinay Gupta
Only using 11 point 0.7 dashboard don't seem to allow joint and educational multiple tables do any subsequent release allow this in the dashboards right now live. I won't be able to answer this, I would keep this question with me and
If the question is from Brandon green Jimmy, I don't know whether you have the email address or if you can tell them to email us, then we can try to find the answer to this and get back to make sure
user avatar Jimmy Yount
That I spoke with him.
So thank you everyone for attending. Please know that today's presentation or the recording of today's presentation will be sent all registrants by the end of the week.
Winner of the free IBM SP VC course will be contacted directly tomorrow, along with any information with an information page to include all the quick links and additional content for it. So again, thank you everyone for attending and hope you enjoyed the session.
