Organizations are pressured constantly to understand and react quickly to information. In addition, the complexity and volumes of data for all aspects of the environments in which organizations operate is increasing. Markets, regulatory environments, customer and supplier data, competitive information, and internal operational information all impact how data is viewed and interpreted.
With a capable and efficient business intelligence (BI) solution, all levels of an organization can receive information how, when, and where they need it to make faster and better aligned decisions. Every user can have access to all the capabilities of the BI solution, and often organizations can determine a user’s business need to access information using typical characteristics that are defined by that user’s role.
Many organizations often satisfy this complexity and these diverse demands with a number of point solutions. With IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence (BI), you can satisfy needs throughout the user community and ensure that everyone can work and collaborate from a consistent set of data. In addition, IT is simplified with fewer components to deploy, manage, and maintain.
Organizations need to make the most of a workforce that is increasingly driven to multi-task, network, and collaborate. IBM Cognos BI delivers analytics that everyone in the organization can use to answer key business questions.
This IBM Redguide™ publication highlights features of IBM Cognos BI version 10.1.
