The hidden gem for surfacing key business performance drivers

Cognos Analytics Explorations is one of the best features in the Cognos platform and it’s an underused gem. Explorations lets you interact with and explore your data to uncover hidden relationships, find trends and identify business performance drivers.

We discuss and demo how to use the features and functionality of Cognos Analytics Explorations.

In this on-demand webinar, we take you on a test drive. We

  • Introduce the Explorations environment
  • Show what drives a sample data set
  • Examine predictive strength of fields in data
