IBM Cognos Review
Allows authors to adapt and elaborate dashboards. I would like to see a more centralized environment.

Valuable Features:

  • Report design
  • Very flexible
  • Intuitive
  • Prompts capabilities, variables, and calculations
  • Easy for authors to adapt and elaborate professional dashboards

Improvements to My Organization:

It includes a dashboard developed for use in all branches across the country. This has improved their time to acquire the proper information to make decisions on a daily basis.

Room for Improvement:

Nowadays, the finance team doesn't use Cognos as they should. They extract a bunch of data and create their spreadsheets all over the place.

With TM1 coming on board next year, this dirty job is going to be replaced by a centralized environment.

Use of Solution:

I have been using the solution for four years in my current job.

Stability Issues:

We have not encountered any stability issues.

Scalability Issues:

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

Technical Support:

The technical support is good.

Previous Solutions:

I am not aware of any previous solutions.

Initial Setup:

The setup is a little bit complex with regard to the IT procedures, but the installation is quite easy.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

The price is a bit expensive.

Other Solutions Considered:

I am not aware of any other evaluated solutions.

Other Advice:

If you have the budget to implement, then do it.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are an IBM partner.
