    IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence (BI) provides a proven enterprise BI platform with an open data strategy. Cognos BI provides customers with the ability to use data from any source, package it into a business model, and make it available to consumers in various interfaces that are tailored to the task.

    IBM Cognos Dynamic Cubes complements the existing Cognos BI capabilities and continues the tradition of an open data model. It focuses on extending the scalability of the IBM Cognos platform to enable speed-of-thought analytics over terabytes of enterprise data, without having to invest in a new data warehouse appliance. This capability adds a new level of query intelligence so you can unleash the power of your enterprise data warehouse.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication addresses IBM Cognos Business Intelligence V10.2.2 and specifically, the IBM Cognos Dynamic Cubes capabilities. This book can help you in the following ways:

    • Understand core features of the Cognos Dynamic Cubes capabilities of Cognos BI V10.2
    • Learn by example with practical scenarios by using the IBM Cognos samples

    This book uses fictional business scenarios to demonstrate the power and capabilities of IBM Cognos Dynamic Cubes. It primarily focuses on the roles of the modeler, administrator, and IT architect.
