Data Module - Possibility to join DC, PA cube, File and FM sources
Possibility create joins in Data module between different type of data sources. E.g. it is not possible to join two dynamic cubes on the fly or enrich Cube data with excel or to combine Planning analytics data to Dynamic Cubes.
"Allow the server to automatically load the file" in Cognos Analytics 11.2+
