QueBIT Blog: You can't judge a technology by its quadrant: Modern analytics and BI platforms

Posted by Robin Wilkinson

Every year Gartner publishes the “Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms” and when it’s released the first thing people look for is where each technology sits within the square.  I have been working in this space for many years with many different technologies and here at QueBIT we are successfully implementing Cognos Analytics for our customers and I would like to share our thoughts on a product we believe in.  While Gartner takes a narrower approach to modern BI, Cognos Analytics takes a broader approach.  Our customers are telling us they still need some managed reporting, self-service, and data exploration in one tool to reduce the number of point-solutions that are disconnected from their enterprise systems.  Cognos Analytics fulfills these needs plus a lot more. 

We are very excited about all the new features in the latest release of Cognos Analytics 11.1, we believe these new features below in addition to what already existed puts us in a great position to help our clients make smart decisions about their businesses. 

  • Introduced the AI Assistant, which employs machine learning, natural language generation (NLG), and advanced pattern detection to convey hidden relationships in data through stunning visualizations, plus distilled observations in plain English
  • Introduced new visual exploration capabilities, like features in Watson Analytics, that make it easy and intuitive for users, even those with no expertise in business analysis, to uncover compelling insights and hard-to-find answers
  • Incorporated many other advanced analytics features that make it faster and easier to discover not only what is happening, but why it happened
  • Made data preparation easier and faster than ever, freeing up users to spend more of their time doing actual analysis
  • Streamlined our overall approach to the BI market by sun-setting Watson Analytics and infusing augmented intelligence throughout Cognos Analytics to make finding answers easier and faster than ever before for users throughout the organization
