BI On My Radio

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 11:01 am

This morning on my way into work I heard a commercial for IBM Cognos business intelligence solutions on the radio. :shock: This was normal (meaning local) radio, not satellite or anything special like that. The target audience was apparently small business owners. I normally tune out commercials but when I realized they were talking about “business intelligence” I turned up the volume to see just what they were talking about.

They went through most of the 60-second spot without mentioning any product names. Only at the very end did they mention IBM Cognos, a web address, and a toll-free number to call in for more details.

Has anyone else heard this, or something similar?

    I have as well. But then again, it’s probably the same radio station **smile**.

    I haven’t heard the advertisement, but I’m guessing that it probably has something to do with the official release of the Cognos equivalent of BO’s Edge series, i.e. targeted at small(ish) businesses.
