Customer Advisory Boards
The goal of Customer Advisory Boards (CABs) is simple: to provide a unified, open forum for a select group of forward-thinking customers. As a CAB member, you’ll gain a greater understanding of our product strategies, provide your thoughts and ideas and help ensure that what we develop aligns with your vision for using analytics to achieve your goals.
Depending on your interest, the Business Analytics group runs a number of CABs that cover our major product families, including: IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, IBM Cognos TM1, IBM Cognos Planning, IBM Cognos Controller, IBM Cognos FSR (formerly Clarity Systems) and IBM SPSS products.
There are some great side benefits, too: being able to preview future in-the-lab products in advance of other customers, and establishing relationships with like-minded customers and IBM Development and Product Management teams that you can take advantage of away from our meeting.
How it works
We meet face-to-face at Business Analytics Forum in the Fall or Vision in the spring. Our expectation is simple: we want your active participation—engage when you can and speak your mind, and second, confidentially share information on the current state of your Business Analytics solution deployment.
