Why we launched our new IBM Business Analytics community

IBM Cognos Content Marketing Manager

I’m delighted to announce the launch of our all-new Business Analytics community. It is an essential component of the IBM Community, which includes more than 100,000 people who connect, learn and share best practices about IBM products and services.

When you join our new BA community, you will have access to these membership benefits:

  • Advice and inside information to get the most out of your investment
  • Access to topic groups on IBM Cognos Analytics, IBM Planning Analytics and Cognos Controller
  • Connections to user groups local to your area
  • Get the latest from us in your inbox. Be the first to know about product updates.
  • A calendar view of all upcoming events
  • BA insights from our Analytics Heroes

So what is an Analytics Hero, anyway? An Analytics Hero is a champion for BA in their organization—someone who passionately believes in the business acumen of BA and the timely insights it can provide. Want to know the best part? Your community participation may earn you the coveted Analytics Hero badge.

Another exciting feature that is coming to the Business Analytics Community is the Accelerator Catalog, a curated list of resources to help get you up to speed as quickly as possible with Cognos Analytics, IBM Planning Analytics, or both. This reference guide will offer insights on  data exploration, dashboarding, data modules as well as integrated planning for finance, sales, supply chain and more.

Best of all, your involvement will grant you the opportunity to shape the future of Cognos Analytics and IBM Planning Analytics. We are cognizant of the fact that our clients have the best vision for our solutions. So it’s our hope that you will communicate your ideas, requests and  feature wish lists directly to the product team.
