The launch of IBM Cognos Analytics marked the release of many new features along with phasing out many mainstays of previous Cognos versions. One of these new features is a type of report, called a “fully interactive” report. Fully interactive reports have additional capabilities when compared to reports that are not fully interactive reports (sometimes called “limited interactivity”).
So what is a fully interactive report? Fully interactive reports are a new way to author and view reports in Cognos Analytics. Fully interactive reports enable live analysis of the report. This live analysis comes in the form of toolbars that enable the user to filter and group information or even generate charts. All this without re-running your report!Image Source:IBM Analytics
