Upgrading from IBM Cognos BI to Cognos Analytics

IBM Cognos BI is now (as of 30 April 2018) out of IBM support and is now called ‘IBM Cognos Analytics’. So, what does this mean to you as an IBM Cognos BI user? Is your Cognos BI system going to fall down and stop working? The answer is no, it will continue to run and deliver the same reports which you have been used to receiving.

Why should you watch this?

There are two compelling reasons to act now. The first is to avoid the risk of system failure. The second is a more positive one; you will get access to new functionality and capability in IBM Cognos Analytics. IBM have invested a lot in developing the BI solution to be more self-service and functionally rich. This includes:

  • NEW INTERFACE – enabling users to undertake “data discovery” and “traditional BI reporting” in one space.
  • STORY TELLING & VISUALISATION ENHANCEMENTS – Create rich ‘data stories’ with infographics, more chart types and layouts which help create flow to your reports, thus encouraging understanding and easy digestion of important data.
  • INTENT-DRIVEN MODELLING – New smart technology based on IBM Watson technology allowing you to use natural language to search for answers.
  • DATA DISCOVERY – enhanced data modules and dash boarding.
  • DASHBOARD CREATION – drag and drop data to suit your reporting and analysis needs.
  • MOBILE ACCESS & AUTHORING – Allowing you to view and author on the go.
  • UPLOAD DATA FILES – Store data from delimited text and Excel files on the file system rather than in-memory or in an RDBMS.
  • OUT-THE-BOX GEOSPATIAL MAPPING – Powerful geospatial mapping is ready to go, out of the box.
  • ALERTS & SUBSCRIPTIONS – Subscribe to, create alerts for and access your reports in ‘My Subscriptions’.
