ExitCertified: Right? So I don't see anyone else joining. So I said, Hello and welcome today. Everyone to today's webinar titled what's new. And I've seen cognos version 11.2 user interface, a comparison with version 11.1. I will be your Mc. For this session. Thank you all for joining the conversation
00:02:22.910 --> 00:02:43.950
ExitCertified: before we get started. I'd like to review some of the webinar functionalities. So during the webinar everyone's microphones will be muted. But we really want this to be an open discussion. So if you have any questions throughout the presentation, please feel free to use the Q. A. Box at the bottom of your screen there will be a dedicated Q. A. After the presentation as well.
00:02:44.050 --> 00:02:53.330
ExitCertified: Today's webinar is being recorded, and a copy will be sent to all registrants by the end of the week. Today, as our speaker, we have our very own
00:02:53.500 --> 00:03:07.040
ExitCertified: today has been training it professionals since 1,990, and has been a trainer with, is certified since 2,016. He is a specialist in Ibm products and hold to numerous Ibm certifications and exam. Development and analytics.
00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:09.310
ExitCertified: For this, said the May, please take it away.
00:03:09.820 --> 00:03:26.490
Vinay Gupta: Thank you so much, and we thank you for very much so welcome, everybody. So I have. I've got enough standards a little bit smaller one, but that's that's good that you may be able to have more questions, and but before I go ahead I would like to get an idea of
00:03:26.490 --> 00:03:48.660
Vinay Gupta: we had everybody in the webinar, because this is a very directed webinar towards just a comparison of the interface, to see how it has changed from 11.1 to 11.2, so I would request Hillary to conduct a couple of polls to know the the the makeup of the audience. So it'll be, if you can, please. bring up the polls and the
00:03:48.660 --> 00:03:50.430
Vinay Gupta: to see where everybody is.
00:03:50.880 --> 00:03:52.629
ExitCertified: I'll just launch it right now.
00:03:52.980 --> 00:03:59.520
ExitCertified: if everyone can go ahead and just answer those 2 questions so that we can get a sense of where everyone is
00:03:59.680 --> 00:04:00.340
00:04:43.720 --> 00:04:51.199
ExitCertified: Okay? So I can see, like 13, one. I think one more person needs to fill it up, so we'll give them a little bit more time.
00:04:58.600 --> 00:05:00.779
ExitCertified: Right? And I go ahead. And before now.
00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:12.300
Vinay Gupta: okay, so half of you are 11.1 1 3 are on 11.2,
00:05:12.300 --> 00:05:36.850
Vinay Gupta: and about the 23% are using and not on the above means. Either you are on version 12, or you are on words in 10. So if you're in working 12, that is good news, because we're in 12 interfaces very near to 11.2 but if you're on virtual 10, then it would be a little bit different for you, because from 10 to 11 Ibm did do a big interface change.
00:05:36.880 --> 00:05:53.219
Vinay Gupta: So if you are more than 10, then it this might be a little bit a more for you to graph, because the the things that change completely from 10, and I see that about how of you again are beginners comfortable? And again both
00:05:53.460 --> 00:06:18.299
Vinay Gupta: 4 of you are export. So those of you are at the export level and are on 11.2 I would say that this webinar may not be able to give you too much new, because by now you would have already figured out that things which have changed if you are already on 11.2, and you are export. But if you're on 11.1 and you are at the export level, you'll be very quickly able to see when the slides come in what has changed
00:06:18.310 --> 00:06:40.020
Vinay Gupta: so without for the delay, let me move ahead with this webinar. So what we are going to do here is we will talk about what has changed in 11.2. No, and mainly concentrating on interface changes. But we will talk about a little bit about the feature changes, or the new functionality which have been added.
00:06:40.070 --> 00:07:04.840
Vinay Gupta: Now on this slide, I would like to say, whatever I'm going to talk about has changed in 11.2. But that's not all which has changed. So whatever I'm discussing is a new feature. But we are not discussing all the new features. There are many other new features also. So it's a subset of the new features. But the interface changes. I will definitely like to go through and show you what has changed in 11.2.
00:07:06.090 --> 00:07:29.529
Vinay Gupta: So 11.2 one x is the long term support release in version 11. After this Ibm has gone to version 12. So if you are going to be on Version 11 for quite some time to go, then 11.2 point X, I mean to be precise 11.2 point 4 is the last version which has been released, which will be the long term support, release for version.
00:07:29.810 --> 00:07:35.559
Vinay Gupta: So the parts of this webinar will talk about
00:07:35.870 --> 00:07:44.209
Vinay Gupta: organizational changes the way things have been arranged. Then. visual changes in the tools toolbar toolbox.
00:07:44.210 --> 00:08:06.069
Vinay Gupta: There's not too much ton of change, but the look and feel has changed a little bit. So we talk about that. And then we talk about certain new capabilities, such as subset of new capabilities we'll talk about, what has changed for visualizations, some new visualizations available, some properties, new properties have been available. Then reporting, we'll talk about certain feature changes in reporting.
00:08:06.180 --> 00:08:23.540
Vinay Gupta: So in reporting, we'll see some filter capabilities have changed some with the administrative control that has changed, and then we can get a module. we'll talk about certain changes in data modules. Also, that is what we will talk about in this webinar.
00:08:24.640 --> 00:08:30.169
Vinay Gupta: So first, the welcome panel changes. So here is what 11.1 it looked like.
00:08:30.430 --> 00:08:39.010
Vinay Gupta: and I would show you in a minute what 11.2 looks like. So main thing is on the left side. What you see here was the sidebar.
00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:46.989
Vinay Gupta: Now these things which are in the side, but they don't look the same. so we see that there was a
00:08:47.260 --> 00:09:05.109
Vinay Gupta: such a menu in the middle that is also changed on the right side. But you see there are 3 dots that has changed. and in the middle bottom you saw what you say quick launch box. So where you, when you drag the file, the quick launch Toolbar appear
00:09:05.350 --> 00:09:12.899
Vinay Gupta: in 11.1 and 11.2. When they bring that up you will see the look and feel has changed. Why they picked
00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:25.310
Vinay Gupta: so in 11.2. Now we don't have the side panel. Instead, we have got a small Hamburger mail. and one thing just change is on the.
00:09:27.350 --> 00:09:44.970
Vinay Gupta: We have got such capability available. Now, this such capability remains available throughout. When you're working in different tools, this blue bar remains on the top and would show you the the search capability. So you can do search anytime when you're working in the tool in the 11.1.
00:09:46.770 --> 00:10:02.200
Vinay Gupta: That capability did go away. So if you are in reporting the search, capability was not available on the left side the sideboard, it changed at the bottom. The quick launch, which is having different options available, uploading the data
00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:30.550
Vinay Gupta: make the explorations and presenting the data preparing the data data modules presenting the data could be a report or a dashboard making You can see explorations and uploading. The data also is available in the quick launch. Now this, that from panel, which you see with watch, video, etc., is there? This is the welcome panel which you can set for yourself if you want to see that welcome panel, or you don't. Everything else still remains.
00:10:30.960 --> 00:10:42.719
Vinay Gupta: In 11.1 you could only said, I don't want to see the welcome page, so you were taken directly to the the content page. So that is, what? 11.1 to 11.2. Well, campaign has changed.
00:10:44.440 --> 00:10:50.570
Vinay Gupta: Then the quoting interface changes in 11.1. This was the reporting interface.
00:10:51.340 --> 00:10:59.220
Vinay Gupta: It looks very similar. But main thing. What you will see is in the recording interface. We've got 2 bars on the top.
00:10:59.880 --> 00:11:08.879
Vinay Gupta: So we got the navigation bar, and we have got the undo added, etc. And in the blue, but on the top
00:11:09.060 --> 00:11:28.110
Vinay Gupta: pay attention to what we see here the 3 horizontal dots. They have changed to vertical dots in the 11.2, and also pay attention to this small icon on the right hand side, which was manage icon. That's still there, but it has changed, and it has become quite you may say
00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:46.319
Vinay Gupta: in. So it. It's sometimes height. So you what you're looking for this you may not be able to figure out why it is there. But and, as I said, many of you are experts, so they would have figured out by now where it has gone. And another thing just change in the interface is everywhere where you see
00:11:46.320 --> 00:11:54.219
Vinay Gupta: the properties or questions with yes or no, they have changed from yes or no to a the Slider Button time.
00:11:54.240 --> 00:12:07.989
Vinay Gupta: and also the icons have changed. You will notice the change in the toolbar, which I will explain on a slide also a little bit later, and icons on the top of this insertable objects also have changed.
00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:11.750
Vinay Gupta: So this is what 11.2 looks like. Now.
00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:25.740
Vinay Gupta: you see, the such capability is available in the tool also, which was not there in 11.1, and the switcher menu from the middle has been shifted to the left side. And you see here the icon has changed.
00:12:25.850 --> 00:12:37.780
Vinay Gupta: and also the properties. Yes, have no properties have changed from yes or no to a radio, but easier to one with, and the icons
00:12:37.900 --> 00:12:40.400
Vinay Gupta: well above the inside of a logic. They have changed
00:12:40.450 --> 00:12:55.939
Vinay Gupta: the The sources has got a different icon. The tool box has a different icon, and you see, the toolbar looks quite different now. Apart from the the the icon with the gear kind of shape has now become this.
00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:58.610
Vinay Gupta: It has become 3 dots.
00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:02.720
Vinay Gupta: and you will see that the lock icon has also changed.
00:13:03.460 --> 00:13:16.689
Vinay Gupta: So these things have changed in the user interface. It looks pretty similar, but small small things here and there, when you're trying to look for certain properties, and you're going to look for certain icons that is different. In 11.2
00:13:18.550 --> 00:13:28.780
Vinay Gupta: next, the tool box changes. Now, there are not too many changes in toolbox, but definitely. you will see that the icons have changed
00:13:29.610 --> 00:13:36.480
Vinay Gupta: same thing. If you how about your icons, you would see the same thing, but it has changed in 11.2. That default
00:13:36.580 --> 00:13:48.220
Vinay Gupta: view of the tool box has seen to icons from list. Now, in the 11.1. Also, there was an icon available from where you could switch to the You can say
00:13:48.820 --> 00:13:57.480
Vinay Gupta: I calls for the tool box, which will give you a very similar, but the default has changed in 11.2 and 11.2. Also you can call the list view. If you want it.
00:13:57.700 --> 00:14:09.960
Vinay Gupta: all, the phone is the same. But you will notice that there is a new hold that added at the bottom, which is for developers. Now, through the developer folder, you are able to present it
00:14:09.980 --> 00:14:13.889
Vinay Gupta: and test certain visualization you're trying to create.
00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:30.839
Vinay Gupta: And you want to make some you can say a sparkle visualizations. You can do that to the developer folder. So there are 2 placeholders available where you can plug in the development which you do and work with. reporting tool
00:14:31.000 --> 00:14:33.529
Vinay Gupta: using this developer.
00:14:34.790 --> 00:15:04.480
Vinay Gupta: then on demand toolbar changes. Now, of course, on the icons are there, but some icons have changed more than others. For example, in 11.1 this spin and ping icon, the arrow is pointing upwards, and when you click on this, it unpins your toolb in 11.2, it points downwards. So in 11.1, if you click on that unpin icon, then the arrow would point in a different direction. But that is what has changed in 11.2. Look at the past, Icon
00:15:04.840 --> 00:15:06.350
Vinay Gupta: same quite a bit.
00:15:06.860 --> 00:15:19.689
Vinay Gupta: Fortunately, the place of the icons is very similar or same, so it is easy to to figure out what is there, but it would take you some time. So the purpose of this webinar is to just
00:15:19.690 --> 00:15:39.480
Vinay Gupta: make the things a little bit more easier, I'm I'm sure. if you were given 11.2 right away. After 11.1 you will be able to figure it out. What is there? But we are trying to present here the changes where we see the most significant changes. So the changes are in the calculation, I thought, and the group icon, which we use very, very often
00:15:39.480 --> 00:15:42.030
Vinay Gupta: as change in shape quite a bit
00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:47.570
Vinay Gupta: to recognize what the a group icon is going to be. The for icon has changed
00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:57.790
Vinay Gupta: significantly. So if you are used to looking at the big A for the font that has changed in shape. Another thing, the format icon is
00:15:58.040 --> 00:16:00.519
Vinay Gupta: quite a bit for that
00:16:00.800 --> 00:16:12.369
Vinay Gupta: now. I think the endeavor of Ibm is to make the Icon more in line with other software like world. Excel Powerpoint. This icon you will be familiar with, which is formatting.
00:16:12.370 --> 00:16:30.899
Vinay Gupta: So in previous version it was called like that. It's also a brush, but it doesn't look too much like a brush. So I think they have changed those things, and all the horizontal 3 dots have changed to vertical 3 dots in the previous version. Some places we used to use vertical, some places horizontal, so I think they have tried to handle that
00:16:30.900 --> 00:16:37.820
Vinay Gupta: functionality and keep it more consistent. So the all the 3 dots are now what they call instead of horizontal.
00:16:38.490 --> 00:16:42.180
Vinay Gupta: So what I will do I will bring up
00:16:42.460 --> 00:16:54.629
Vinay Gupta: live environment in 11.2 point 2, because that is where the forces have been released by Ibm and show you these changes so we can look at those our set. So what you see here is
00:16:55.760 --> 00:17:09.260
Vinay Gupta: the menu on the top left hand side the open menu. From there you can go to new, upload new files, and you can. When you click on content, you will see a new tab opens up with let me log in.
00:17:17.790 --> 00:17:28.730
Vinay Gupta: That was actually so here, if I click on here, and if I go to content, it opens up the content in a new tab. and from here you are able to see
00:17:28.790 --> 00:17:39.869
Vinay Gupta: the my content team content, sample, etc. This work folder. This has been configured by me to show as a folder for Frank Brett, for authors.
00:17:39.870 --> 00:18:05.229
Vinay Gupta: so you can create a folder for yourself, and then, as an administrator, set it show as a tab for certain roles. So that is what is a new functionality added. In 11.1 you were able to set specific folders, but they didn't did not show as tabs when you log in to your environment. So you can set that in 11.2, the search functionality is available on the top
00:18:05.310 --> 00:18:08.429
Vinay Gupta: right inside. And one more thing that you will see
00:18:09.560 --> 00:18:34.280
Vinay Gupta: platform the new menu where I want to upload files. I also have that available on the screen. On the top, right hand side you will see upload files. Icon is available, and that icon remains available to you, no matter what fold that you are in. So let us say I will navigate to let us say samples folder. You see the upload file icon still remains available. That means the new functionality 11.2 is
00:18:36.520 --> 00:19:03.350
Vinay Gupta: that you can upload the file to any folder up to 11.1. Once you uploaded 5 by default. It was only loaded to your my content. and then, if you wanted to make it available to other users, you had to copy or move that file to a different team contact for. So now you have an ability to upload any folder directly if you want. So this upload facility remains available to you, no matter where you are in navigating.
00:19:04.440 --> 00:19:19.119
Vinay Gupta: So closing that if I do that I'll come back to my welcome page. Now, I said the welcome panel. So the personal menu has also changed. In 11.1 you had this provider setting, and the
00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:43.770
Vinay Gupta: settings, mind, boss, etc. Has 2 tabs. Now here you will need to go to profile and settings, and that brings up the setting for you. So in the settings you will see welcome banner is on. If you don't want to see the welcome banner, it's the top black portion. You can switch it off from here. Everything else is pretty much the same. The only thing is, the organization has changed from 11.1 to 11.2,
00:19:44.130 --> 00:19:55.889
Vinay Gupta: so you are able to change your profile and setting. So I will just bring up 11.1 also, and just for the comparison's sake, show you so if I am logged in.
00:19:56.580 --> 00:19:59.380
Vinay Gupta: and if I click on the personal menu here.
00:19:59.830 --> 00:20:03.509
Vinay Gupta: Oh, I need to log in again. Here, let me do that.
00:20:05.500 --> 00:20:09.370
Vinay Gupta: I kept this in mind. We're running for quite some time or log me off.
00:20:14.400 --> 00:20:31.820
Vinay Gupta: So here, if I click on this. So I see my preferences. So that was available. If I go to my preferences, that is where I saw a general personal arrangement has changed a little bit, but things are pretty much the same, so you can set whatever setting you could do. It is the organization which has changed.
00:20:33.070 --> 00:20:45.369
Vinay Gupta: So that is what is changed from and the the quick launch toolbar, as they said, that was available to you, and you could track a file here that the quick launch Toolbar will show up.
00:20:48.960 --> 00:20:57.709
Vinay Gupta: So that was about the interface changes. But let me bring 11.2 again and show you The reporting interface changes.
00:20:57.950 --> 00:21:03.820
Vinay Gupta: So if I click on new and I click on the report
00:21:06.310 --> 00:21:29.420
Vinay Gupta: so that one thing to change is when you select a template instead of okay, being at the bottom, they have made it create on the top. That is a small subtle changes in the interface. But these are changes cover to us, and also one thing is different in reporting interfaces. When you start with a blank template, it does not give you the plus sign in the middle. Instead, it has got defined
00:21:29.420 --> 00:21:43.960
Vinay Gupta: the various widgets which you can have select a widget type instead of calling it either container or just showing you those 6 things around the plus sign. They have changed the. And this only shows up in the what you see a blank page template when you start with that.
00:21:44.340 --> 00:21:46.879
Vinay Gupta: So I'm going to select a package.
00:21:55.000 --> 00:22:06.730
Vinay Gupta: So everything else looks very similar. But when they click on toolbox, you see, by default it comes in the icons. but I can change it to other view if I wanted to.
00:22:07.930 --> 00:22:14.510
Vinay Gupta: and on the top. The added or non edit mode also is through a a small.
00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:19.090
Vinay Gupta: but so when they add a list here.
00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:22.479
Vinay Gupta: and did you see
00:22:22.590 --> 00:22:27.179
Vinay Gupta: the various properties. So yes or no have been shown as the
00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:32.580
Vinay Gupta: you know, the Slider. But so that is, the interface changes. And
00:22:39.490 --> 00:22:48.389
Vinay Gupta: so when I try to add object. The tool box, of course, is dynamic. It will show you different options based on what you have opened up.
00:22:52.450 --> 00:22:55.419
Vinay Gupta: So that was about the interface changes.
00:22:57.430 --> 00:23:04.660
Vinay Gupta: Now, we're talking about some feature changes in 11.2, and it's a subset. As I said so, first.
00:23:04.880 --> 00:23:31.209
Vinay Gupta: new visualization. So we've got 2 new real engines available. Box plot is available and radar visualization is available. It's a 2. We'll actually add it in 11.2. The box plot can show you our clients. So once you have your data, you'll be able to see the outline data very clearly in a box plot. The data is for the screen performance, and whether at our visualization, you're able to see how different categories are doing business with others.
00:23:32.150 --> 00:23:38.110
Vinay Gupta: Now, this one showing labels in local languages, in map visualization is a new
00:23:38.110 --> 00:24:04.070
Vinay Gupta: features added. So when you use a map visualization and you say, show labels in local languages, what does that mean? It does not mean the complete content would change. It would show in the Russian region. It will show the names in Russian language in a Us. Region to show in English. In France it will show in French, so the labels will show in the local languages, in map, visualization.
00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:11.349
Vinay Gupta: dashboard footer, a default photo will automatically appear without you doing anything which says
00:24:11.390 --> 00:24:23.029
Vinay Gupta: that the data is provided by I am, Ibm, dv. 2. That only happens if at least one visualization on the dashboard uses. Dv 2 data source.
00:24:23.270 --> 00:24:37.779
Vinay Gupta: So if you are using files, if you're using some other databases, this suitor would not show up. But in case any one visualization, all your dashboard is using Dv. 2, then you will see that default foot that would show up at the bottom
00:24:37.990 --> 00:25:06.110
Vinay Gupta: in map visualization. You can also change the type 2 threed accident which will show you your data in you can say hacks being bars. And if I want to just explain what it looks like, it looks like those you could say Laura bars, or something which is like second in shape, and the height represents the value of the measure. So I will quickly go, and we'll show you. These, of course, will not be going into the
00:25:07.920 --> 00:25:13.949
Vinay Gupta: you can say reporting, for, say, I will close this report, and we open a dashboard.
00:25:27.460 --> 00:25:30.780
Vinay Gupta: and if I wanted to go for a visualizations.
00:25:33.240 --> 00:25:37.189
Vinay Gupta: you will see here that the visualizations are available to us.
00:25:37.210 --> 00:25:42.509
Vinay Gupta: There is a box plot and a visualization available.
00:25:45.630 --> 00:25:54.199
Vinay Gupta: there is a visualization available, and there is a boss for a visualization. But I am going to add a map to utilization to this.
00:25:54.400 --> 00:25:56.850
Vinay Gupta: And what's the added map? Visualization
00:26:01.850 --> 00:26:03.839
Vinay Gupta: and I click on properties
00:26:05.280 --> 00:26:08.030
Vinay Gupta: the visualization
00:26:09.750 --> 00:26:30.019
Vinay Gupta: points later. So here is the type when I click on type, it gives me hex bit. So that type will change your a data to be shown in hacks, but that functionality is available from 11.2 point 2 onwards only before that it was not available. So the the property to discuss. Some of them are available in different point releases.
00:26:30.290 --> 00:26:37.600
Vinay Gupta: So that is what you can add in your chart utilization. But let me just go ahead and add for you. Now look at one more thing.
00:26:38.910 --> 00:26:43.759
Vinay Gupta: the toolp on the top. The 2 code ones have been combined into one.
00:26:44.440 --> 00:26:55.590
Vinay Gupta: so that you always have the search functionality available even when you are in the tool that you're working in the tool. So here is your such a menu has gone from the middle to the top bar.
00:26:55.610 --> 00:26:59.439
Vinay Gupta: but you will have here undo redo, etc.
00:27:00.150 --> 00:27:05.979
Vinay Gupta: And the properties you are able to work with in a single. we blood on the top.
00:27:07.860 --> 00:27:13.300
Vinay Gupta: So let me show you the other visualization also in report.
00:27:29.340 --> 00:27:43.820
Vinay Gupta: So when I select visualization here, you will see box plot visualization is available and is available. So these are the 2 new visualization which I talked about are available to you to add it into a report or a visualization
00:27:47.040 --> 00:27:50.890
Vinay Gupta: which I wanted to show you. I will just add
00:27:51.920 --> 00:27:54.389
Vinay Gupta: a widget to a dashboard.
00:28:02.950 --> 00:28:05.790
Vinay Gupta: and let me add,
00:28:08.320 --> 00:28:09.720
Vinay Gupta: list, magic.
00:28:12.390 --> 00:28:13.850
Vinay Gupta: and this.
00:28:29.860 --> 00:28:31.939
Vinay Gupta: or instead of doing that.
00:28:35.880 --> 00:28:39.080
Vinay Gupta: yeah, we select some from here.
00:29:09.110 --> 00:29:26.850
Vinay Gupta: See here. So once I add the visualization. So no matter what resolution comes in, the Pooter appears at the bottom. It says, the data on this dashboard is provided by Ibm, dB, 2. So that will appear only if the data source which you're using is using. Ibm Dv 2 database.
00:29:35.780 --> 00:29:40.720
Vinay Gupta: So that is what the changes about the visualization of
00:29:42.320 --> 00:29:53.040
Vinay Gupta: now in reporting there are 2 new teams available carbon act slide carbon x.so these are Ibm teams which you can add, and these are not templates. These are teams.
00:29:53.300 --> 00:30:15.030
Vinay Gupta: Now, one more thing which is available is select inside. Prompt is now available for reports made with data modules. Now let me give you a background here now, since I don't know if you've noticed it or not. So, since a version 10.2 10.1 Ibm has been adding features which have lower business, author friendly. So any
00:30:15.030 --> 00:30:24.890
Vinay Gupta: also it wants to create their reports. and does not have technical background. Ibm has been adding features, so they are able to add and create reports for themselves.
00:30:25.080 --> 00:30:33.110
Vinay Gupta: So they added a feature for creating a filter which was custom based on data item filter which was introduced in Version 10,
00:30:33.300 --> 00:30:42.349
Vinay Gupta: and using that the business office could just drag and drop and select the data items and make the report, using filters without actually writing sequel.
00:30:42.610 --> 00:31:03.869
Vinay Gupta: But that filter was not available. Certain selecting search filter not was not available for Any report which uses data, modules and data modules is also a online modeling functionality. So now, when you make a report, using it in a module which you might have. Model yourself as a business author, you can use a second set round for those reports also.
00:31:03.920 --> 00:31:12.029
Vinay Gupta: Now, new custom, greater capability available, not the customer based on data I can. With the previously you could only select
00:31:12.470 --> 00:31:21.180
Vinay Gupta: individual items to filter on. But now you are able to do this custom better, based on a condition
00:31:21.220 --> 00:31:25.080
Vinay Gupta: which he adds more functionality for business authors.
00:31:25.220 --> 00:31:30.139
Vinay Gupta: So custom, business based on data item and combined printers can now use condition based expressions.
00:31:30.750 --> 00:31:49.910
Vinay Gupta: Now, donor visualization created from a file. So if you use a pi visualization, you can control the size of the whole in between to make a donut visualization from their excel. So let me show quickly those functionalities to you in a demo in 11.2.
00:32:02.340 --> 00:32:06.530
Vinay Gupta: So okay, the to show you the teams, let me go back again.
00:32:11.340 --> 00:32:29.009
Vinay Gupta: So on this phase itself, we'll see the teams. You have got carbon X light and carbon X dot 2 more teams available. So once you use the team, it does some auto coloring. If you're used to those teams. So these these 2 new teams have been added. Templates are pretty much the same. You can make your own tampled if you want to.
00:32:42.970 --> 00:32:46.329
Vinay Gupta: and I would add a list to this report.
00:33:01.550 --> 00:33:07.970
Vinay Gupta: So when I try to create a filter from there. and I create a new filter.
00:33:08.140 --> 00:33:28.430
Vinay Gupta: custom-based, read item, or even combine filter. So when they say, combined filter, can I first choose product line? So here is an option available. This was available in the previous version. I could only select individual values. But now I'm able to add a condition also. So when I click on condition it allows me contains
00:33:28.770 --> 00:33:36.679
Vinay Gupta: starts with ends, with matches sequel pattern. So if I say contains. And I put here, let's say, accesses.
00:33:43.510 --> 00:33:52.809
Vinay Gupta: And here also I can say, exclude, or I can keep. So this from study is still available. So when I click, okay, it will say, product line contains accessories.
00:33:53.010 --> 00:33:59.279
Vinay Gupta: And I want to add another condition up to this. And I want to do it on product type, maybe.
00:34:02.020 --> 00:34:07.990
Vinay Gupta: and a product type. I see also accessories like say.
00:34:18.810 --> 00:34:22.599
Vinay Gupta: and by default they have added with. And I can say, or
00:34:24.760 --> 00:34:29.899
Vinay Gupta: and hopefully, I will get data from this report. So when they run this report.
00:34:33.389 --> 00:34:54.520
Vinay Gupta: I get everything in product line which contains accessories. But you will see, golf equipment does not contain excesses, but product type contains access. So I am able to do it, based on conditions. Of course, with advanced printers, we could always do that. So that is available. But now even the business authors are able to do this
00:34:54.520 --> 00:35:05.349
Vinay Gupta: for themselves. So that is a functionality added. So business authors are able to take more advantage of the the fourth. So let me add a visualization to this.
00:35:10.810 --> 00:35:13.280
Vinay Gupta: and when they select
00:35:16.480 --> 00:35:26.310
Vinay Gupta: 5 visualization. So I've got 2 available. Don't identify. But if I start with a by visualization, I'm able to change the do not hold radius.
00:35:26.430 --> 00:35:42.000
Vinay Gupta: So if it is 0, this means it's a full pi. I can give it in points point 2 based on the 5 Ids point 2 times you'll be the doughnut whole point 3.4. I can do that, and if I start with doughnut it is by default point 5
00:35:42.000 --> 00:36:00.190
Vinay Gupta: I but I can control. So this functionality, if you are having a file in visualization, you can change it to a doughnut if you want it. So those are the functionalities which I wanted to show you in the reporting applications. There are some others which I may not be able to show you, because they are in the later versions
00:36:00.190 --> 00:36:01.590
Vinay Gupta: for point releases.
00:36:02.950 --> 00:36:18.969
Vinay Gupta: So it is in 11.2 point 3. You are able to get more general report control. As admin, you are able to say who can? Added a bursts definition? Who can, added HTML. Items, use a defined sequel or generate, burst out for the
00:36:19.780 --> 00:36:40.940
Vinay Gupta: run. The report. So you are either able to run or even make. So it gives you more control. Ps version 11.1. You could only say, some user can use HTML, or bursting or user defined sequel. So once you say that they can add it, they can get the output from there. So it gives you more gradual control in 11.2
00:36:43.670 --> 00:36:52.270
Vinay Gupta: maps, and other visualization will be now rendered in Pdf. And Excel formats also to the new image subjects added in the 11.2
00:36:52.570 --> 00:37:02.040
Vinay Gupta: which lets you have those visualization landed in Pdf. And Excel formats. Also there is also a the motion of when the student reports to analysis
00:37:02.520 --> 00:37:20.820
Vinay Gupta: and analysis to reporting. So you are able to do mass migration. So it gives you help to migrate your older content. If you are using pretty studio because quality studio has been sunset. So if you are using queries studio, you are able to convert multiple reports together to a reporting for
00:37:22.580 --> 00:37:35.590
Vinay Gupta: data modules. Now in data modules it, it has become easier to create and maintain navigation path. This is a portal available in data modules where you can add multiple navigation paths.
00:37:36.780 --> 00:38:00.719
Vinay Gupta: Now, this is a functionality added for for some standalone calculations, you are able to do data grouping so previously for calculations. Data grouping was not available. It was only available for data which are in your package. So now you can do a calculation in your data module, and then can also specify grouping. For that the only caveats are, if the data type of that calculation sector, numeric or spring.
00:38:00.800 --> 00:38:02.710
Vinay Gupta: you are able to show
00:38:03.160 --> 00:38:14.469
Vinay Gupta: to get data groupings done for that. But the aggregate property must be set to none, and you are able to do both textile grouping as well as numeric style grouping.
00:38:15.030 --> 00:38:28.319
Vinay Gupta: Now this as of date parameter, it was available 11.1. Also, you could do that as a date parameter which could be a global parameter. And your authors could use those global parameters to. what you say.
00:38:29.070 --> 00:38:47.739
Vinay Gupta: have your analysis done? And even the relative data analysis could be done based on the as of the parameter. But now you are able to set up a demand from since I'm been teaching 10.2 or something. People used to say, when I use a parameter, can I use a dynamic data there, for example, current date
00:38:47.900 --> 00:38:50.140
Vinay Gupta: for a calculation, for a date
00:38:50.260 --> 00:39:15.690
Vinay Gupta: that is now available with as update, you are able to specify dynamic dates so as update can automatically change to current date or last year of a month. So you are able to do that in 11.2. So this is what the new features are. But you must have. Ibm has a leisure. Why is it going in calendar which you need to download and install in your environment? Only then you'll be able to specify the dynamic date, for, as of date parameter.
00:39:17.350 --> 00:39:38.300
Vinay Gupta: Now that's what that I'm like. What I want to do is show you all. And I the next slide I would like I should be to take over so that she can talk about certain courses which are available to us. There are instruct to learn courses as well as set up this courses for 11.2 point x
00:39:39.960 --> 00:39:51.720
ExitCertified: I can go ahead and put some of those links in the chat to you guys can kind of take a look at what we have for our Ibm cropnos and structure like courses as well as the cell phase.
00:39:51.740 --> 00:39:54.090
ExitCertified: So I'll go ahead and post those in the chat.
00:40:06.550 --> 00:40:19.160
Vinay Gupta: Okay, this is the latest 11.2 courses available to you if you are interested in joining. But good news is that we have got promotions available. I like, you'll get to speak to that also.
00:40:19.200 --> 00:40:30.430

Vinay Gupta: If you are a fairly new you might have, but if you are export you might have just enjoy your time.
00:42:28.600 --> 00:42:35.909
ExitCertified: So we do have one come in from Leon. So what is the preferred browser for creating an editing report?
00:42:36.590 --> 00:43:03.949
Vinay Gupta: Well, there's no preferred browser per se the chrome works. Very good at chrome and fat folks. I've been using it for a long time even as now works with the later versions. but if you go to the supported environments, you will be able to see exactly what browsers are supported. But there's no preferred browser per say, if it is certified, supported by a target, those Ibm, then it would work equally well.
00:43:24.040 --> 00:43:32.230
ExitCertified: Okay. And I don't see any more. Okay, one more. We saw this election of developer in a screenshot. Where does it appear in Report studio?
00:43:34.030 --> 00:43:43.859
Vinay Gupta: Oh, the developer. Once you add a visualization because it it is, do with a visualization. When you add a visualization and just click on the visualization tool box and you will see the developer section.
00:44:10.550 --> 00:44:18.850
ExitCertified: And I see no more questions coming in. So that's a thank you all so much for attending, and have a great day.
00:44:18.900 --> 00:44:20.070
Vinay Gupta: Thank you.
