IBM Cognos - IBM informations-integration för IBM Cognos användare


Published on

Hur kan användare av IBM Cognos analys- och rapporteringsfunktioner känna 100% tillförsikt till den information de analyserar? De måste kunna se och få förklaringar till vad informationen betyder, var den kommer ifrån och vilken status den har. Lösningen på denna typ av krav, och fler därtill, är IBM InfoSphere Information Server, som är marknadens mest kompletta plattform för informationsintegration. Denna presentation hölls på IBM Cognos Performance 2010 av Mikael Sjöstedt, InfoSphere Specialist, IBM
