Average: 4.5 (1 vote)

IBM cognos 2010This week I attended the IBM Cognos Performance 2010 in Barcelona with the main objective to know more about the new features of IBM Cognos 10, the new version of this suite of Business Intelligence.

The event had as main thread presenting this new version of IBM Cognos, but also included broader sessions, with topics such as corporate performance management, analysis, 'What-if' and other arrangements under financial, Business Insight and predictive analytics, and case studies.

After the initial presentation, two meetings were progressing in parallel, one oriented to technology and other business. There was a choice and I really would have liked to attend a further meeting.

I find it very appropriate that most of the interventions were responsible for the area of IT or business data warehouse, as the vision and how to communicate to the person who runs a project internally is often the most realistic and that can best explain the needs, problems and what actually can be considered at the level of business success or failure of a technology project.

Cuadros de mando de Oracle AnswersOracle, in addition to their famous manager database has a large catalog of software products, many developed internally and acquired through the purchase of other companies.  Within the environment of business intelligence that fact is even more remarkable as just more of Oracle's recent acquisitions were purchases of BI software vendors.

Pervasive Business Intelligence could be translated as Omnipresent Business Intelligence, at least at the enterprise level. This is to make the BI system to reach all levels of the organization, at the right time, and the information needed for each. You can even include integration with other systems operating normally, and also provide interaction capabilities, not just access to information.

TDWI have done a study on the extent of introduction of the BI tools in business. Used as a basis a survey of over 700 people involved in BI projects and in-depth interviews with over 20 vendors and professional world of BI.

The results of this study is the report Pervasive Business Intelligence, Techniques and Technologies to Deploy BI on an Enterprise Scale, which way to summarize what I find most relevant:
