Cognos Analytics components

IBM® Cognos® Analytics is a web-based business intelligence solution with integrated reporting, dashboarding, analysis, event management, and more features. Cognos Analytics includes server and modeling components.

Cognos Analytics integrates easily into your existing infrastructure by using resources that are in your environment. Some of these existing resources are required, such as a database for the content store. Other resources are optional, such as a security provider for authentication.

Tip: When Cognos Analytics is installed using the Easy Install option, you do not need to configure a content store database or a security provider. The product is preconfigured and ready to use.

IBM Cognos Analytics runs WebSphere® Application Server Liberty Profile as the application server.
