AI + BI = The All New Cognos Analytics


The all-new Cognos Analytics (version 11.1) infuses AI into every aspect of the trusted, proven BI platform, including:

• Data exploration tools that use natural language generation (NLG), allowing users to ask questions and get answers in plain language.

• Reporting functions that are not only easy to use, but also provide the ability to customize reports with company colors and logos, can be shared via Slack, and burst out to thousands of users at a time. AI suggests the best visualizations, joins and alternatives that allow users to uncover the true value in their data.

• An AI Assistant that learns each individual user’s needs and supplies timely and accurate suggestions to get the most out of their data.

• Advanced analytics that support drivers, red dots and NLG.
