Amazon Athena

Cognos Analytics 11.0.8 introduces support for Amazon Athena, a SQL interface for data files stored in Amazon S3 storage.  Athena was built on Presto, an open source distributed SQL query engine which is also supported by Cognos Analytics as of version 11.0.7.

Spark SQL

Cognos Analytics 11.0.8 also adds support for Spark SQL via the Simba Technologies JDBC driver. Spark SQL (Thrift Server) is a service that can receive SQL queries via JDBC and in turn generates Spark requests which are executed by a cluster of Spark executors.

Azure SQL Data Warehouse

Even though many Cognos Analytics customers are already using Azure SQL Data Warehouse due it being a variant of Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database, it is now officially supported just like those others!
