What's New in IBM Cognos 10 in the IBM Cognos Performance 2010

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. Specifically, I would have liked to be also in the 'What's new in IBM Cognos BI Authoring' and the SPSS Predictive Analytics..


Business Intelligence Forum 2010

Average: 3 (1 vote)

On Wednesday May 12 celebrated the 10th Forum of Business Intelligence, which has been Dataprix Media Partner and I had the opportunity to attend.

The event was quite interesting, and it was a good opportunity to learn first-hand opinions and impressions of deployments responsible for business intelligence projects.

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.

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:

Poll Results  

Adoption of BI tools and level of use

  • Adoption based on roles

Others who lead the adoption of both ratios (allocation of licenses) and use of BI tools are the business analysts, followed by managers and executives.

In the post in our forum CRISP-DM to Spanish Translation Daniel Alejandro attached a document with a Castilian translation of the CRISP-DM methodology for developing data mining models.


The content of that seems so interesting to the community that we publish in the form of a manual online to make it more accessible to all members.Can be found by following the link Methodology CRISP-DM 1.0


Also enclose the original document in English from which Daniel has done the translation.
