September 10, 2008 - Cognos, an IBM company and a world leader in business intelligence and performance management solutions, announced the availability of IBM Cognos TM1 9.4, an enhanced version of its performance management solution for enterprise and midmarket organizations.


The latest version of IBM Cognos TM1 9.4 features enhanced intuitive analysis and reporting capabilities, higher levels of compliance and software standardization as well as integration with IBM Cognos 8 Business Intelligence (BI). Based on a patented, 64-bit, in-memory multidimensional online application processing (OLAP) server, Cognos TM1 gives users real-time insight into the impact of their financial performance management activities including planning, budgeting, forecasting and consolidation.


Powered by the TM1 analytics engine, IBM Cognos TM1 9.4 enables strategic analysis of financial, transactional, operational and other large-volume business data, allowing users to see sophisticated views of mission-critical information. As a result, users can perform 360-degree analytics, easily spotting trends that can optimize budgeting, planning, reporting and forecasting processes and outcomes. TM1 9.4 also includes enhanced administration features, usability improvements for Excel and Web users as well as compliance with Vista and Office 2007.


One of TM1’s most significant new features is “Active Forms,” which provide a number of new or updated capabilities for both power users and end users. These include reports with asymmetrical drill-down, parameter-driven row definition, intuitive style-based report formatting, an identical user experience in both thick or thin client and server-side zero suppression for improving end-user responsiveness.
