Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with IBM Cognos.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
This product could use improvement in terms of usability for those with less technical know how.
* Continue to develop the AI assistant so we can add business logic to the metadata. * Ability to insert own graphs in D3 through supported API. * Prompting should be better.
The latest visualization doesn't give much flexibility to the users in terms of what can be changed. For example, there are fixed palettes. The dashboard interface needs tremendous improvement as it's not very fast as compared to Tableau and the likes.
The charts and graphics are very weak. You can find some dashboards, but it is very rigid. It is not as fancy as what you find in another solution, like Microsoft BI.
We need more predictive analytical functions, not only diagnostic or decryptic analytics.
What we have noticed is that it's lacking a few things which we want, especially on the visualization side of things. We want Cognos to improve, IBM to improve. But functionally, it has been working fine. One thing that we really want is the ability to have data portrayed on an image. Cognos is not able to do it at the moment, and that's becoming a requirement from the business side: having an image and then plotting your dataset on top of the image as a map.
