The latest version of Cognos, the IBM Business Analytics business intelligence suite, has been released this week.
Cognos 10 aims to aid decision making, resource allocation and prediction by offering business intelligence (BI) combined with planning, scenario modelling, real-time monitoring and predictive analytics. Collaboration and social networking capabilities are also offered via integration with Lotus Connections.
A significant new feature of Cognos 10 is the ability to host on IBM Cloud rather than on-premise.
Cognos 10 also enhances support for the iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry, and also offers offline capabilities.
