The Information on Demand 2010
conference kicked off yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada. For those of you not here with us, I wanted to keep you abreast of all the action so far.
Timothy Powers of the Predictive Perspectives blog had a great post
earlier, which summarizes the buzz from this year's conference. His top mention is one of the main events, the launch of Cognos 10 (click here
to check out the Cognos 10 web pages).
One of the integral features of Cognos 10 is the addition of collaborative capabilities, including the ability to establish workflows and the enablement of information sharing across "divisions, location and departments", according to the Cognos 10 pages. A mobile component and the capacity for real-time sharing of insights will allow for improved project tracking and more effective decision making.
In fact, connectivity and information sharing seem to be underlying themes of this conference in more ways than one. IBM is connecting participants across multiple social channels, allowing conference goers and observers alike to share up-to-the-minute information about the event. Check out Tiffany Winman's IBM Software blog post
for tips on how to follow the action through Twitter, blogs, the IOD social media aggregator
, live-streaming and more. In this way, we can all share our own insights in real-time across divisions, locations and departments!
