5.0 out of 5 stars Cognos Convergence 24 May 2012
By TMC - Published on
As a long time user of the Cognos Suite (and SPSS), I was wary of how the products may converge. I was hoping to find a guide that would begin to help me understand IBM's thinking through practical examination of the features. This guide more than serves that need and much more. Well-written, clear, and expansive, this treatment absolutely deserves a place in your library.

3.0 out of 5 stars More for the administrator than the end user. 2 Jun 2013
By A. Henriksen - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this to help with my day to day tasks as a report writer. I have no control over the set up of the tool. The book give basic information on using the tool. The index is particularly un-helpful

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to get started with Cognos! 21 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Being new to Cognos (just starting with 10) this book has been a big help. After using the IBM documentation for the install - the install isn't covered in the book - it was great to have this book to reference. The basic examples of what we need to do definitely helped me get up to speed in a hurry!

In addition of being a complete textbook for learning to use Cognos, it also overs the key pitfalls one will encounter from a business standpoint in real life application of BI.
