COGNOS 8 Business Intelligence
As an end user, one now has more options on how information is delivered through self-service personal alerts and enhanced dashboard interactivity. Watch rules, report alerts, and watch items have been introduced to allow one to target the information that is delivered. Global synchronized filters and tabbed portal pages allow information to be delivered to one in briefing-book style within a portal. As a business user, one of the most critical elements in enabling self-sufficiency is to ensure that one has the right data, modeled in a way that makes sense for the business.
