Through this validation, global organizations can capitalize on out-of-the-box production-ready Cognos 8 BI portlets that conform to IBM WebSphere’s Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP)-compliant framework. This offers business users complete access to all facets of their Cognos BI implementation — including reporting, analysis, scorecarding, dashboards and business event management — via an integrated WebSphere Portal interface. Customers also benefit from stronger portal authentication and information security through the integration of Cognos 8 BI’s powerful security mechanism with IBM WebSphere’s native single-sign-on (SSO). Furthermore, portlet-to-portlet communication lets users easily navigate their Cognos 8 BI content and render reports in complete business context, delivering results to a dedicated view, and enabling the user to utilize their limited visual resources to their full potential.
Cognos 8 BI is the only solution that provides the complete range of BI capabilities in a single product, on a single Web services architecture. It is also the only solution to deliver a simplified, zero-footprint interface for all users, authors and administrators. Easy to integrate, deploy and use, Cognos 8 BI delivers a simplified BI environment that drives high user adoption, enables better decision-making, and serves as an enterprise-scale technology foundation for performance management, now and in the future.
Cognos also recently achieved IBM’s "Ready for Grid" validation, certifying Cognos’ interoperability with IBM’s standards-based, flexible and scalable suite of software and hardware products for Grid Computing. [May 19, 2006]
