IBM Cognos Analytics Builds Upon Core Strengths

by Colin Quinn

IBM Cognos Analytics provides unsurpassed security and governance at every level, including data and reports, the dashboards, as well as the information that is distributed on a daily or weekly basis. Even though IBM Cognos Analytics opens doors to a breadth of company data, tight controls are in place that can govern who has access to what. For any number of reasons, departments throughout the enterprise might have certain data that is not for general consumption and mechanisms are in place to ensure appropriate controls.

IBM Cognos Analytics’ underlying principles of enterprise scale, enterprise security, and governance, which IBM has enhanced with every upgrade, have reached a level of sophistication that provides IT with a high level of assurance and comfort.

Extremely large corporations, large banks, and large retail organizations use IBM Cognos as part of their core operational business every single day. The stakes are very high for our customers and we get that. So in the process of rethinking the customer experience for the IBM Cognos Analytics upgrade, we’ve ensured that the core principles that customers have come to count on were maintained, and in many cases, enhanced.

Performance has always been key for both the large-scale enterprises and the smaller companies that rely on IBM Cognos, and we’ve enhanced that even further. Our KPM solution is built to deliver actionable business intelligence for the project manager up through the CEO.

IBM Cognos Analytics is a highly scalable system. It has been designed from the outset as a solution for both small companies up to the largest retail, banking, and corporate enterprises. The upgrade to IBM Cognos Analytics represents another leap forward for scalability.

The cumulative result of the range of enhancements is a very crisp and responsive customer experience that guides the creation and consumption of reports, as well as the exploration of data and the interaction with the interface.
