Bing and Google Analytics for Cognos. Where does it fit? What can I do with these analytics tools? Let me paint a picture for you. As products such as IBM Cognos BI, and TM1 invest in a budgeting and planning tool, it could easily end up providing a data repository for business analytics for the IT and Marketing departments.
Where do Google Analytics and Bing Analytics come into play? Many companies’ Marketing departments use Bing and Google analytics capabilities to determine the effectiveness of their online outreach. With this comes the need to incorporate that data into a company’s analysis to improve profit margins.
Thankfully for us, the Google developers have given us a template for automatically extracting their data in either .csv or .xml format. From there, it simply requires setting up an automated data import, possibly via a SQL sequence, into Cognos and then building reports that mirror Google’s dashboards.
