Cognos, a world leader in business intelligence (BI) and corporate performance management (CPM), announced it is embedding the Composite Information Server from Composite Software, a leading independent provider of enterprise information integration (EII), into Cognos ReportNet through an exclusive BI OEM agreement. Cognos has further solidified the partnership by making a $4.5 million minority equity investment in Composite Software.

The Composite relationship is one of many initiatives underway to deliver on Cognos' open data strategy for its customers. Cognos, recognized for its leadership and ability to provide the broadest and deepest solution for BI standardization, is committed to helping customers leverage their increasingly complex data environments in order to maximize their return on investments. This agreement provides Cognos with a solution to support very high performance joins on an expanded set of disparate data sources.

With this agreement, Cognos allows new styles of reporting and analysis by combining historic data from warehouses with real-time operational information from a wide range of data sources including XML, JDBC, WSDL and LDAP - enabling a "single version of the truth" - without moving or replicating data. Organizations can dynamically access and leverage all information, internal or external, no matter where the information resides in order to be more competitive.

The Composite Information Server for Cognos ReportNet is available immediately.
