When it comes to adopting business intelligence solutions, organizations are looking for the path of least resistance – so they can accelerate time to value and avoid disruptions to existing processes. Solutions such as IBM Cognos Analytics have helped clients like Mueller achieve deeper insights faster by allowing them to get more out of existing data assets with an AI-infused BI and analytics tool.

Mueller is an American steel building and metal roof manufacturer based in Ballinger, Texas that has been using Cognos for over a decade. With the most recent Cognos 11.1.7 capabilities, Mueller has seen how easy it is to build insightful dashboards using AI to identify and analyze outliers in their data, all in a matter of minutes.
