Upgrading from Cognos BI to Cognos Analytics

Today, it’s not just about making data-driven business decisions. It’s about making decisions that drive competitive advantage. The answers business people seek are locked within their data. And although there are solutions that produce engaging visualizations, they lack the data quality and analytics governance capabilities of an enterprise BI & analytics solution.

There is a lot of excitement about the new release of IBM Cognos Analytics, as this version offers quite a lot of new features that will create an enhanced end-user experience through a number of simplified functionalities.

IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1 is a personal analytics experience that provides sophisticated data exploration capabilities. Delivered on a single integrated and highly secure platform, Cognos Analytics enables business users to explore and work with all types of data for better decision making.
