IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson - A new name but what does this mean?

Whether you are an existing or new client, this session will quickly explain the benefits of the newly launched IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson. Ever since the initial version 11 release of Cognos Analytics, IBM has invested and infused the solution with many key AI capabilities – adding them to data preparation, to data modelling, to advanced analytics charting and visualisations, as well as giving business users the ability to ask the AI assistant questions of their data. With these AI capabilities, the strength of the core governed, scalable and secure enterprise reporting platform that we know as Cognos Analytics is complemented and augmented to simply make things more intuitive and easier.

The latest 11.2.1 release of IBM Cognos Analytics is now with Watson, so it’s time to take a step back and let IBM take you through what we mean by AI in your BI and how this can be extended to utilise the Watson family for data science, machine learning and data governance. There is more to Cognos Analytics than just reporting and dashboards – the BI market is rapidly changing so why not challenge your existing deployments from other BI vendors and allow your BI community access to the many innovative and intelligent capabilities within IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson that they can use to make better business decisions every day.
