Upgrade to advanced collaborative analytics with IBM Cognos 10 and NEC.
There is a myriad of excuses to hold onto older versions of IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, such as upgrading
is too complicated, change is disruptive, strategizing is time consuming, deployment can be expensive or we lack
the expertise or resources. Yet the advantages of migrating to Cognos 10 clearly offset any such justifications.
With the ability to empower knowledge workers and decision makers with enhanced functionalities and
capabilities, Cognos 10 provides adaptive, actionable and collaborative business intelligence (BI) efficiently and
cost effectively.
Expanding on traditional BI by enabling information to be more easily collected, interpreted, understood and
reacted to, Cognos 10 centralizes planning, scenario modeling, real-time monitoring and predictive analytics and
puts these capabilities into the hands of those who can make the best use of these abilities.
• CUSTOMIZABLE INSIGHT – a new user interface provides the freedom to create meaningful, custom reports. A
unified BI workspace delivers analytics that users can apply to answer key business questions. With drag-and-drop
functionality, knowledge workers are able to put the information needed at their fingertips and build personalized
dashboards on demand. Exploration and authorizing activities mix seamlessly without having to switch interfaces or
• VISUAL ENRICHMENT – a new default charting engine and chart types, such as bullet charts, chart matrix and
enhancement styles, gives users more power to create eye-catching and salient reports. Data-rich analysis turns
easily into illustrated and engaging reports.
• FLEXIBLE ACCESSIBILITY – new report outputs make for a highly interactive, easy-to-use and intuitive navigable
environment. Accessible even when offline makes these report outputs the ideal solution for remote users.
• PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS – an integrated family of products (powered by IBM SPSS) are now integrated in IBM
Cognos Report Studio. With more than a dozen fully integrated modules to choose from, specialized capabilities are
available to increase revenue, outperform competitors, conduct research and make better decisions.
