Cognos is teaming with Nokia to offer a new set of choices for accessing business intelligence (BI) data. The alliance calls for the Cognos 8 Go! Mobile solution to be accessible via Nokia Eseries devices and Nseries multimedia computers.

Cognos 8 Go! Mobile delivers enterprise data through a user interface that can be optimized for various mobile platforms. It allows decision makers who need to access BI content across the enterprise to view the same consistent, trusted source of operational information whether they are in the office or on the road.
As use of mobile devices in the corporate arena grows, solutions like Cognos 8 Go! Mobile should prove extremely valuable.

According Stamford, Conn.-based Gartner , worldwide shipments of PDAs and smartphones totaled 57.4 million units in the first half of 2007, a 36-percent increase compared with the same period in 2006. Gartner expects shipments of PDAs and smartphones for all of 2007 to reach about 129 million units, up 42 percent compared with 2006.

Cognos customers such as Stockmann , a leading department and fashion store chain in Finland, expect to wring great business value from the combination of mobile devices and BI software.

"Our beta tests of Cognos 8 Go! Mobile with our Nokia Eseries devices showed us the power of the product's rich-client mobile environment,” says Ilkka Pirttimaa, leading IT architect, Stockmann. “We could easily drill through report content, get live data, and work with it offline—all with the benefit of existing access control parametersess information for more informed decision-making."
