IBM Cognos and Motio Best Practices Blog
October of 2014 marked IBM’s annual conference for Cognos and a variety of other products, which was formerly known as IBM Information on Demand and now known as IBM Insight. The conference was filled with sessions, hands on labs, guest speakers, booth visits, and much more. Just because you couldn’t attend Insight 2014 in Las Vegas doesn’t mean you should miss out on the key features of the conference. Here are some of the highlights:
The new 10.2.2 release of Cognos Business Intelligence was the topic of many sessions and presentations, not to mention conversations held by Cognos users. Some of the Cognos 10.2.2 changes discussed relate to reporting and administration features, while others relate to things like hardware and software architecture. See Jeff’s post for more about what’s new in Cognos 10.2.2. The beauty of being at the conference is that these changes were discussed in detail, and customers large and small have the opportunity to start planning implementation of new ideas or time to plan for changes to internal Cognos architecture.
