What’s New in IBM Cognos Analytics Report Studio

Multiple Measures in Visualization

With IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1.7 version, we are allowed to add multiple measures in the Visualisation. For example, we have the following requirement. We need to create a Line Chart to display COVID-19 information. In it, we need to show Recover, Deaths, and New Cases with Record Dates. Let’s try to achieve the above requirement with IBM Cognos Analytics version 11.1.6.

We already created a new report with a Line Chart with the following columns in it.

X-Axis: Year, MonthName, RecordDate.

Y-AXIS: We need to add the required measure.

Let’s try to add Recover, Deaths, and Confirmed in the Line Chart at Y-Axis.

While we are trying to add more than one measure it is failed with a warning “You can’t insert multiple items inside the selected location.”. 
Let’s try the same with IBM Cognos Analytics version 11.1.7.

We successfully able to add multiple measures, and it is working as expected.
How we supposed to add multiple measures in the older version of IBM Cognos Analytics? For more details, tricks, and the workaround, you can always register for the training session. Contact Us for more information.
