Global software developer Rocket Software recently announced the release of Rocket Discover 1.5, a self-service data preparation, visualization, and discovery tool that provides unparalleled native access to IBM Cognos BI & TM1 data. Rocket extends the value of your investments by giving you the ability to connect, visualize and collaborate on your IBM Cognos TM1 cubes and your Cognos BI content such as Queries and PowerCubes.
Smarter self-service data preparation cuts down on the time it takes to create dashboards by creating queries faster, therefore accelerating data enrichment across relational, mainframe, and local data sources for richer visualization and deeper discovery. Since dashboards are populated by queries, the faster the queries are created, the sooner they are available for dashboard creation. Presentation mode makes it simple for users to display insights while still providing the ability to drill down into source data if needed.
Analyst Claudia Imhoff, President of Intelligent Solutions, Inc. and Founder of the Boulder BI Brain Trust (BBBT), says that Rocket is setting a new benchmark for BI. “Rocket continues to impress, with Discover 1.5 giving business users an enhanced set of data visualization and reporting tools. The latest version also opens up opportunities for IBM Cognos BI 10 and TM1 users with native connectivity that provides faster access to business insights. It’s a win-win for Rocket and IBM founded on a relationship started decades ago.”
