Analytics and reporting software supplier Cognos has released the latest version of its enterprise planning series suite, boosting the integration between Cognos' flagship applications and its latest additions based on technology from its aquisition of Adaytum last year.

Cognos released a branded version of Adaytum's software last year, but the release of enterprise planning series 7.2 is the first edition to connect Cognos consolidation with the Adaytum-based Cognos enterprise planning software.

Cognos' enterprise planning series is one of several software suites in the company's portfolio.

The latest version adds interoperability with other Cognos products, including its ReportNet and PowerPlay business intelligence and its metrics manager scorecarding tool.

Version 7.2 also adds to the enterprise planning series a link to the single sign-on system found throughout Cognos' products.

Pricing for Cognos' enterprise planning series varies by configuration, but a 50-user licence starts at around $75,000 (£40,000). Version 7.2 will available worldwide.
