    Welcome to the new and improved IBM Business Analytics community! I am your community manager (you can also find me over in the Data Science community), and I look forward to supporting this group by monitoring feedback and questions, providing useful information and tools, and building out a vibrant ecosystem for users to get access to courses and education, share ideas and use cases, ask for advice, and troubleshoot. ​

    A quick tour of what you'll see in the new community:

    Product Updates: Check here for updates on Cognos 11.1.3 reporting, new map default styles, migrating from IBM TM1 to Planning Analytics, and more product news, hot off the presses. 

    Tip of the Week:
    Find the latest tips from our expert team to help you be more successful in your tools. Check out Cognos: Migrating from CQM to DQM, Making the most of your Planning Analytics Trial, and Cognos Analytics 11 SSAS pass-through Authentication and SSO with Kerberos

    Here you'll find top viewed blogs, active discussions, and events buzzing around our community. Jump right in and introduce yourself!

    Group Discussions: As the primary function for community, we invite all of our members to use the discussion board as a place to introduce yourselves, share some background on your experience, ask any questions or advice to other members and experts, or put out a call to action. Since we're brand new, I encourage everyone to reply to this thread with a brief introduction and how you've engaged with IBM Business Analytics or intend to.  

    Local Groups: Are you a local user group leader? Would you like to start a user group? Local user groups are a great way to connect and interact both online and offline with other IBM users near you! For more on local user groups and to apply to lead one in our community today, click here

    Analytics Heroes: 
    We spotlight a featured customer or community member monthly. Could this be you? 

    Events: Want to dig into skills and training? Start your Business Analytics learning journey here, by attending our webinars and in-person events. Have something to share with our community, such as leading a product use case webinar or tips and tricks? Send me a message or reply here and we'll get you set up. 

    What's Hot: Here you'll find an integration of news sources relevant to Business Analytics, largely sourced from our community blogs, generated by both members and experts. If you're interested in becoming a blogger on IBM Community, please reach out to me here!  The overall Community platform hosts over 100,000 members across 12+ different topic areas. 

    Upgrade Central: Stay tuned for content specifically related to upgrades. 

    Accelerator Catalog:  This catalog is everything you need to get started on your BA journey, right at your fingertips. 

    Share your ideas: Submit product feedback and ideas to our aha! page, and vote on other ideas. Our team will monitor the thread and you'll have the chance to join us in brainstorming implementation. 

    You'll also see a leaderboard on the left side of the home page. Earn points for every post that you contribute to or even read. There are plenty of achievement badges to collect!

    Looking forward to getting to know our members and tailoring the Business Analytics community to your needs. Thanks for dropping an introduction and any feedback here -- again, welcome!

    Hello Christina, its nice to meet you. My name is Benjamin, I also go by Ben so either is fine. I'm hoping to learn enough to start using IBM Business Analytics to increase engagement and improve key metrics. I don't know enough yet to accomplish this right now but that's why its great to have education forums like this. Looking forward to learning more here and thank you for the info and support!

    Hi @Benjamin Ogden, nice to meet you and glad to have you as a member of our community. A few of our OMs have introduced themselves over in another thread, and there are a ton of great resources to dig into across the community. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to reach out to any of us. I also highly recommend taking a look through the events page and registering for some of our upcoming webinars or taking a look at few of the past - great education and training from experts, including specific use cases!
