Budgeting, planning, and forecasting is done only in Excel. In the end, our business users need to bring it all together to figure out how to act. Technology has come a long way but the problem of collecting and combining data is still there! With the combination of Alteryx and IBM Cognos Analytics, users can access, blend, prep, calculate, and then visualize data across multiple systems, files, and spreadsheets. It can all be done in an automated and EASILY repeatable fashion. Let us show you how easy it is to get started!
Use IBM Cognos Event Studio to notify you about ANYTHING! (Live Webinar)
Wed, July 26th, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CST
With data coming in from every direction, sometimes the biggest challenge is knowing WHAT to pay attention to! You may have hundreds of reports, dashboards, etc. available but which one should you look at today?

“Alert me if a new order is placed.”
“Run a database job to delete access if a user is removed from Active Directory.”
“Call a web service to add a user to a system if we have a new hire.”
Let us show you how you can use IBM Cognos Analytics to be alerted about ANYTHING that happens within your systems!!
