Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 13, 2009 -- Visual i/o ( today announced and unveiled the newest generation of its enterprise software for interactive visual analysis and business intelligence at the IBM Cognos Forum (, taking place in Orlando, FL---May 12-15, 2009.

Through its new product, Visual i/o also introduces an industry-first "Visual Search" capability delivering unprecedented integration of business intelligence with data search functionalities. The new software will be demonstrated for the first time in public during Cognos Forum at Booth 32 on the expo floor.

Visual i/o's new software adds unprecedented capabilities and powerful functionality for business intelligence and performance management professionals using Cognos products. Visual i/o meets strong Cognos customer demand for high-performance visualization for both structured database data and unstructured Web content.

"As a presentation layer technology, Visual i/o's products and components reside on top of multiple data sources and the Cognos architecture to provide intuitive and highly interactive user interfaces," said Angela Shen-Hsieh, founder of Visual i/o.

"Many of our customers use Cognos products.

Our proven technology solutions and consulting services enable Cognos enterprise customers to present complex data in digestible, usable formats for executives, management, business end users and consumers."

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):

Visual i/o Features:

  • Provides interactive views (Gantt charts, bubble charts, heat maps) of complex data contained within Cognos databases
  • Easy-to-use controls and filters allow users to interactively investigate data in real time
  • so that key results are immediately apparent. Structured and unstructured data is made dynamically accessible and reports easily shared with groups of authorized users.
  • Packages industry-relevant templates and expertise (e.g., pharmaceutical portfolio management, sales team forecast) for domain relevance and quick productivity.
  • Provides a rich, Web-based experience for tracking time flows and trends, exploring patterns in data, and filtering/highlighting based on user requirements.

Visual i/o Benefits:
  • Facilitates faster, more-informed exploration and refinement of data, and better decision-making.
  • Powerful interactive analysis empowers business users to easily understand complex data
  • Reduces manual reporting processes through self-service capabilities.
  • Extends existing Cognos investments.
