Burlington, Mass., Jan. 24, 2000 -- Cognos, a leading strategic vendor of enterprise business intelligence (BI) solutions for e-business, announced its intention to port its software to the Linux operating system. Cognos recognizes that Linux ? because of its flexibility and availability ? is part of the computing infrastructure customers are considering when building enterprise- scale, Internet-based, e-business applications.

Companies today are transforming the way they manage their business processes by embracing e-business and the flexibility of the Web. The organizations that are leading the way are looking to development environments such as Windows, UNIX and now Linux to handle Web-server components of their distributed e-business applications. Cognos helps customers by providing integrated enterprise business intelligence solutions across all of their e- business applications, operating systems and data sources. Cognos business intelligence solutions are currently available on Windows and three UNIX platforms. Specific plans for adaptation and release of Linux versions of Cognos solutions will be finalized in the coming months.

"Linux is emerging as a very real option for organizations who want the flexibility to choose the most appropriate operating system for development of Web-based applications," said Terry Hall, Cognos' chief operating officer. "A number of our customers are evaluating Linux and have recognized that Linux is a potential operating system for Internet-based, e-business applications. Customers are looking to strategic vendors, such as Cognos, to provide the flexibility to run their applications on all their Internet platforms of choice."
