Orlando, Fla., Sept. 7, 1999 - Today at its North American user conference, Cognos unveiled the Cognos platform, the first solution for building, managing and deploying BI solutions for enterprise and e-business needs. The Cognos end- to-end platform includes enterprise infrastructure layers that cover data mart building, integrated meta data modeling, integrated security, as well as content management and distribution through a rich BI portal environment. These layers encapsulate new editions of the Cognos Web-based BI server engines for reporting, analysis and visualization.

The Cognos platform for enterprise BI solutions addresses the full range of customer needs from proactive managed reporting and self-service ad hoc interaction against both OLAP (online analytical processing) and relational data sources in addition to business performance scorecarding, high-end visualizations and business performance management reports. This is delivered from a unifying foundation on which businesses can extract value from corporate data and deliver it in a consistent way within the enterprise and beyond to customers and suppliers using the Internet.
