IBM Cognos Review

The Dashboards feature is almost a challenge to other BI tools

In the market, there are new cutting edge technologies that analyze data in a better way. Cognos is a tool where we can view the data in a more understanding way. In the new version, Cognos 10.2.1, there are new features to analyze the data, and this enables you to take better business decisions.

  • Active reports are available to see the data offline and can be integrated to view the report outputs on an iPhone as well in an animated feature.
  • Visualization feature is in the new version, 10.2.1, and can be compared with other BI tools such as Tibco, Spotfire, and Tabulae.
  • Dashboards feature is almost a challenge to other BI tools to show the reports in the same way, i.e. a summary analysis.
  • Other reporting options are almost complete compared to the other BI tools and offers more sophisticated performing.

We can say that it’s a very successful BI tool and it has gained acceptance with business users and hopefully will be in the market for a long time.
