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.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

The price is a bit expensive.

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