IBM Cognos Analytics

Cognos Analytics (v11) can be on cloud and has a much better UI and self serve features

Mattel is a big customer for IBM, so IBM was trying hard to maintain the relationship, however since there are so many IBM products, somethimes the internal communications at IBM were not very good so i noticed there were too many silos going on without good syngey. IBM internal communication could be improved. As far as the Cognos product, the Cognos Analytics (v11) has been really improved on the self serve and ease of use areas, we are planning to migrate the that version as well as cloud in 2017.

Great Product not so great service

vendor seems to be low in customer sensitivity and more lost in large enterprise syndrome

Cognos is ready for prime time analytics

INstalling and conifguring the software has had its' challenges, but with so manyn options and moving parts, this is not unusual for such a complex install.

Watson Analytics for Students Creates Analytics Aware Graduates.

The IBM Watson team in the UK and US have been extremely helpful and efficient. The UK team provided outstanding support to our students during their initial use and the US team have been excellent as we start the deployment to all of our UK students in September 2016. Watson Analytics 2.0 is seen by our students to be an excellent next step in the interface. The range of teaching materials and YouTube videos are very comprehensive and allow new users of Watson Analytics to get started very quickly.

IBM Watson Analytics

Super easy to get started. Some features exceed market - just need to catch up on a few.

It has a really nice UI, very modern. The predictive features are well above what Tableau or Microsoft Power BI can do, so that's a differentiator. Same thing with data refinement - really nice. The features it has I think it does as well as anyone. Only difficulty I have is with joining datasets together - I don't think there's a way. Also, drilling from report to report.

IBM Watson Analytics

Easy to implement.

Was very quick and simple. Up and running in 15 minutes.

More insight in first 30 minutes on a new data set than received in the previous 90 days.

System worked very well from first use of data.
