IBM Cognos Analytics is an AI-fueled business intelligence platform that supports the entire analytics cycle, from discovery to implementation. Visualise, analyse and share actionable insights about your data with anyone in your organisation.
Cognos Analytics uses AI to uncover patterns in your data you didn’t know were there, and natural language generation to communicate those insights to you.
Connect and combine your data effortlessly
Connect to a wide variety of different data sources or upload spreadsheets.
Your data is more powerful when it is connected. Cognos Analytics will help you auto-join multiple sources into a single trusted data module. The bigger the module, the deeper the insights.
Cleanse and combine your data sources in minutes with AI-assisted data prep, which makes recommendations on ways to join and blend your data. When you’re ready to explore and visualise, AI helps you create targeted dashboards.
Cognos Analytics has strong governance rules that scale, so nobody has access to data or assets they aren’t supposed to see, whether you’ve got one user or a thousand. And because it connects directly to your data, there’s less risk of data leakage or “bad” data contaminating your results.
