I am IBM Partner now!

IBM has also a First Class BI Solution that
DBA Consulting is offering to you!

IBM has a first class Business Intelligence Solution that DBA Consulting is offering to you from now on. You can count on first class consultancy services and first class software and hardware that is at your choice at competitive rates and license costs and reliable hardware that has proven itself for over 100 years now!
IBM is number two in the Gartner Quadrant (see earlier blog), just before Oracle and just after Microsoft. That is all according to Gartner that is. I think all three BI solutions are great and highly customizable to your needs and Dashboard wishes.  

With IBM Cognos 10 BI Suite however you are in for as treat.

Cognos Business Intelligence provides:
·         Predictive analytics, allowing users to perform advanced
analysis, publish and communicate with the broader user

·         What-if analysis for users to create and evaluate on-the-fly

Collective intelligence

“The very nature of an organization is different
people doing different things. The only way to
make it work is communication. And the basis for
communication is shared understanding of goals,
of process, of performance, of data.”
Dr. Greg Richards, IBM Center of Performance Management, Telfer
School of Business, University of Ottawa.5
5 Analytics

Organizations need more agile decision-making to respond to
market opportunities and challenges. In the case of the
workplace, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Smart organizations pull creative elements out of
compartments or silos and integrate them into the mainstream.
So that everyone understands and can influence the greater

In a collaborative environment, people proactively exchange
knowledge and cooperate with one another, eliminating
communication barriers and improving the organization’s
ability to be ready for what comes.

In other words, collective intelligence ensures a more informed
and aligned business – one that is more efficient, effective and
adapts quickly to internal and external change. Collaboration
closes the loop from insight to action, and enables everyone to
work together, agree, decide and act.

Cognos Business Intelligence addresses these requirements by
providing collaborative intelligence to share insights and gain
alignment. Collaboration and workflow allow the business to:

•Establish decision networks to share insights and drive toward
collective intelligence.
• Provide transparency and accountability to drive alignment
and consensus.
• Communicate and coordinate tasks to engage the right people
at the right time.

Establish decision networks

Cognos Business Intelligence accommodates the social
networking needs of users in your organization, so they’re able
to share insights, solicit input from peers and enable better
corporate memory.

The software provides integrated access to blogs, wikis and
message boards from the Cognos Business Intelligence
workspace. As a result, users can connect with the right people.

They can establish decision networks and threaded discussion
areas to assemble and discuss relevant issues. For example:
publishing a BI report via a blog to share with peers over
the web.

Provide transparency and accountability

Without process and data standards, organizations lack a single
version of the truth. Annotations, taxonomies and metadata
help organizations to correctly source information, identify
author input and gain a common definition of terms.

Consensus and accountability across the same shared platform
ensures consistency and gives users confidence in the
information they are using.

Cognos Business Intelligence provides:

• Ability to annotate reports to insert commentary for
additional context.
• A centrally managed set of terms and taxonomies.
• Metadata showing report information, technical views and
visual maps of where underlying information is sourced.
• Alignment to business structures, to better support and reflect
the organization
