First of all, I would like to congratulate Sanjeev Datta and PACKT on publishing of this new book 'IBM Cognos Insight'. This book is available as e-book (PDF, Kindle, Online, etc) and as a paper book for people like me who like to read books in physical form.If you didn't know, I am pleased to tell you that Cognos Insight is available for free download from IBM. You can register at www.analyticszone.com and download the installer. This is a great initiative by IBM to offer this desktop based tool for free with all features and no time limit. This will certainly help the students and developers to hone there OLAP skills and help many individuals to perform data analysis on demand.
However, like other IBM tools, the user guide for Cognos Insight is concise and there are not many resources available to quickly learn the product in detail.
That's where this book written by Sanjeev comes for rescue. I found this book very useful and a nice resource to have due to following reasons:
1. Detailed information about installing, configuring and distributing Cognos Insight
2. All topics are covered in detail and with screenshots (which was missing in the product user guide)
3. Expert topics like 'Using analytics successfully' and 'Strategic Decision Making' where Sanjeev has shared his learning from experiences
4. Various business scenarios to get inspiration about different analysis that can be performed on data
So, don't delay - Get the free download of Cognos Insight today and start playing.
The book can be bought from PACKT's own website: http://www.packtpub.com/ibm-cognos-insight/book
