For the current dashboard, it would be nice to have a better layout and more functions.

We have been using this solution for fifteen years.

Each product that I have worked with has bugs, and Cognos is no exception. There will be new releases that will fix these bugs.

Scalability is fine. I never came across any major issues

Technical Support:

IBM has a complete knowledge base and support setup.

Initial Setup:

The installation was straightforward.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Pricing and licensing have many forms and possibilities. Take a good look at the number of users and the profiles needed. This will increase or decrease the price accordingly.

Other Solutions Considered:

I worked with several BI products. The choice depends on the business size and preferences.

Other Advice:

Check all BI products, such as Microsoft, Oracle, and Cognos. Check the pros and cons before making the choice.
