IBM Cognos 8 Business Intelligence: Two Industry Leaders, One Powerful Result
In 2003 IBM Cognos ReportNet, a new reporting software, was introduced, built on a Web services-based, service-oriented architecture that complemented IBM technology. It promises and delivers a single product for all reporting requirements, with simplified deployment, maintenance, and integration; drag-and-drop ease of use; multilingual reporting; and many other innovations. IBM Cognos 8 Business Intelligence offers reporting, query, and analysis; dashboards and scorecarding; business event management; and the unifying power of centralized metadata in one product, on a single, proven service oriented architecture. IBM Cognos 8 BI delivers all of these capabilities through a 100 percent Web browser interface for all users.
