IBM Unveils New Information Management And Business Analytics Software

There's a lot of news coming out of IOD already.  Let's start with the software-specific announcements (more to follow in subsequent posts)

IBM Cognos 10: A major new release featuring enhancements in usability and a single workspace, updated reports/graphics engine, tighter integration with SPSS, integration with Lotus Connections, disconnected use, mobile use (iPad, iPhone), and platform/performance enhancements.

IBM DB2 10 for System z:  Updates that deliver up to 40% performance improvements and 10x scalability

IBM InfoSphere Information Server 8.5: Faster and more accurately integrates diverse forms of data, with pop-up menus to integrate data quality and lineage information directly into business applications, and new quality capabilities that improve how data is standardized and combined.

IBM InfoSphere BigInsights:  A technology preview of Hadoop-based big data analytics software for analysis of big volumes of structured and unstructured data.

These are all big stories in their own right.  I'll be blogging more about Cognos 10 shortly with updates from the launch event that took place earlier today, and expect to have more on the others shortly, as well.
