Upgrading from V11.5 or an earlier V11.6 release to the latest feature pack release

When IBM® releases a feature pack for InfoSphere® MDM, you can apply it using IBM Installation Manager and the Upgrade_MasterDataManagement madconfig target.

About this task

InfoSphere MDM Version 11.6 represents an important shift in the way that IBM delivers updates to InfoSphere MDM. Product updates are now delivered using a continuous delivery strategy, meaning that new features and enhancements are now provided in smaller feature packs rather than having to wait to be included in a larger release. As a result, you can more quickly obtain new product features and more easily update your deployment to take advantage of them.

Tip: To upgrade from Version 11.5 to Version 11.6, run the madconfig script Upgrade_MasterDataManagement. For information about upgrading to Version 11.6 release from Version 11.4 or earlier, see Upgrading from a previous version.

To apply a feature pack, you must download and extract the feature pack artifacts, then run a command line tool to configure the feature pack.

Tip: For details about the included enhancements and known issues for each feature pack, see the IBM Support web site.
