EXASOL’s JDBC interface receives Cognos certification

The application of analysis tools from different manufacturers depends particularly on how well the tools support one another. EXASOL AG and IBM Cognos now jointly offer customers precisely these advantages with EXASolution’s JDBC interface that has been certified by IBM Cognos.

Nuremberg, 29 January 2014 – IBM Cognos Business Intelligence supports the JDBC interface of the analytical database EXASolution from EXASOL AG with immediate effect with the version Interim Fix 3. Together with EXASolution 4.2.3 (or higher), it is possible to select the corresponding JDBC data source and drivers, which enhances the work between EXASolution and Cognos’ business analysis solutions immensely. For example, complex SQL queries can be set up for the analytical database EXASolution to generate ad hoc reports directly via Cognos and the corresponding results processed directly.

The certification programme strengthens the smooth compatibility of Cognos and EXASolution. Joint end customers, in particular, benefit from this symbiosis. For example, there is no risk of incompatibility, and all the advantages of both tools can be fully utilised without any obstacles.
