March 2016 Blog - IBM Cognos Analytics V11

On December 23rd 2015, IBM released IBM Cognos Analytics, their latest Business Intelligence reporting offering, available on-premise or as a cloud service. Self Service is the key word here, giving users a platform with which to build accurate reports and dashboards that satisfy the needs of the business.

IBM Cognos Analytics V11 helps you do the following:

  • Improve the spectrum and confidence of reporting while using trusted and curated data from existing sources.
  • Reuse content from others and share personal insights at the scale-of-the-business without time-consuming migration.
  • Use hybrid cloud capabilities by working from on-premises and cloud deployments while accessing dozens of data sources (on-premises and cloud-based).

One unified interface

A dramatic change from IBM Cognos 10, Cognos Connection has disappeared to be replaced by the IBM Cognos Analytics Welcome screen. IBM Cognos Analytics is the new single interface that users can access content and administrators can perform administrative tasks. All levels of users now only have to worry about learning one single interface and no longer have to learn multiple studios.
