Data-mining would be a matter of even more specialized tools, but with SPSS you may be in the right corner. Both Cognos and SPSS are now IBM solutions, so perhaps the notion may be explained in this fashion?

Yep - SPSS is the IBM Business Analytics data mining tool. It's not Cognos per se, but it is a key part of IBM's Business Analytics capabilities, and SPSS Modeler has integration with Cognos BI.

Cheers!

Meep!
