Visual i/o + Cognos Helps Business Better See and Understand Data:
Visual i/o business analysis components are optimized to run with IBM Cognos 8 Business Intelligence. Its visualizations are presented within the Cognos Connection Portal to provide a security model and single application server for Web-based users. The Cognos-Visual i/o combination lets users draw on data across all enterprise sources to create their own views of trusted performance information and explore it when and how it suits them best.
The visualizations request data through Cognos reports - both automatic/scheduled and on-demand ad hoc reporting. The XML output is then formatted into user-friendly views.
Visual i/o provides executives and managers with an interactive visual analysis tool to view data across multiple dimensions, decision points and milestones per project with drill-down capabilities to provide a deeper understanding of the underlying data. Users now have greater flexibility to generate data visualizations (e.g. Gantt charts) by various parameters, on an ad hoc basis, depending on changing needs, without having to put in a request to an in-house IT/ technical team to update the reports.
Visual i/o delivers essential software functionalities for management productivity (integrating Business Intelligence, Analytics, Budgeting and Planning, Dashboarding, and more):
