Rocket Software has released Rocket Discover1.5, a self-service data preparation, visualization, and discovery solution for business managers and executives. Its IBM Native Connect feature, engineered in close collaboration with IBM labs, lets IBM Cognos business users connect, visualize and collaborate on their IBM Cognos TM1 cubes, Cognos BI content such as Queries, and PowerCubes for increased ROI of existing Cognos investments.

Discover 1.5 makes it easier to combine data from many different sources, providing suggestions that speed up the data enrichment process. Discover 1.5 also adds new presentation features that make it easier for users to communicate their insights and data narratives in a clear and precise framework, simplifying discussions and accelerating business decisions. Key features include:

  • IBM Cognos native connectivity empowers Cognos business users to quickly and easily create dashboards for greater business insights. What would have previously taken days or weeks can now be accomplished in a matter of minutes by reducing dependence on the IT group.
  • Smarter self-service data prep accelerates data enrichment across relational, mainframe, and local data sources for richer visualization and deeper discovery.
  • Presentation mode makes it simple to display insights in an interface-free presentation format while still providing the ability to drill down into source data if needed.

Rocket Discover 1.5 is currently available in on-premises and cloud versions for both Windows and Linux environments. More information is available on the Rocket Software website.
