IBM Cognos Analytics Webinar

A is for Analytics – Key Takeaways from the IBM Analytics University Conference

Hundreds of clients and partners met at the IBM Analytics University in October to engage around solutions for creating data driven organizations that effectively use analytics to grow their business. In sessions, forums, and hands on labs we looked at the opportunities and challenges organizations are having in creating a culture where businesses embrace the science of data as a core capability – one that enables better, faster, and more automated data-driven actions that ultimately create greater commercial value, be it through greater customer intimacy, lower costs and more streamlined operations, or new competitive strategies.

This webinar highlights some of the key topics that were discussed and debated and reviews some real world stories from companies who are leading the drive to increase the use of analytics across their organisations. Key aspects from the track on Analytics for All and Modern BI for the Analytics driven organisation will be covered:

  • How do you protect the results of your analytics when everyone has access to analytics?
  • Snap shots of customers who are at the forefront in rolling out self-service analytics across their organisations
  • Update you on enhancements to IBM Watson Analytics and IBM Cognos Analytics and share how these are moving forward together to meet your analytics needs.
  • See how extending advanced analytics into your BI environment allows you to derive new insight from your data
