New challenger to Business Objects EDGE

IBM have recently announced the release of IBM Cognos Express – “…an all-in-one business intelligence and planning solution specifically designed and priced for midsized clients.”

Targeting the mid-market space, the product appears to be a direct response to the success of the SAP Business Objects EDGE product. Perhaps, confirming that the mid-market space is a vast potential untapped market, IBM Cognos have released their product in three flavours:

  • Reporter – for ad hoc reporting
  • Advisor – for dashboarding KPI’s
  • Xcelerator – in memory analytics
