Cognos PowerPlay

Technology


Probably the best on line analytical processing (OLAP) tool on the market, now rebranded as Analysis Studio as part of Cognos 8, PowerPlay creates multi-dimensional 'cubes' which free users from the difficulties of investigating and understanding their data through traditional fixed reports. These cubes allow users to perform trend analysis and drill down into the report to find, for example, which product(s) might have been the cause of an unusual sales month. You can also drill across to related cubes or ReportNet/Impromptu reports.

PowerPlay can integrate with ReportNet using a single metadata model therefore making it that much easier for clients to attain the holy grail of "one version of the truth".
