An Award for #Cognos Analytics!

Everyone likes to win, and most recently, IBM Cognos Analytics was named a winner in Business Analytics by CRN's 2017 Annual Report Card (ARC).

What is CRN’s Annual Report Card?

For the 32nd year, CRN handed solution providers across North America red pens, and allowed them to grade their vendors as part their Annual Report Card.  Solution providers score vendors across 22 technology categories based on their performance in three key categories: product innovation, support, and partnership with the hardware, services and software vendors they team up with.

The categories IBM Cognos Analytics ranked highest in were:

  • Quality and reliability

  • Richness of product features and functionality

  • Technical Innovation

  • Compatibility and ease of integration

  • Revenue and product potential

So, why did Cognos Analytics rank so high?

Most enterprises know how to collect the massive amounts of data available to them, but they need help transforming this data into insights which they can act upon and then distribute throughout their entire organization for greater business value.  That’s where IBM Cognos Analytics comes into play.
