IBM Cognos Review

It has a very powerful edit feature allowing users to back out of changes without forcing them to recreate reports


What is most valuable?

It has a very powerful edit feature which allows users to back out of changes (undo) without forcing them to recreate entire reports.

How has it helped my organization?

It forced us to look into the data warehousing of our entire existing products that we were using to better evaluate data retrieval.

What needs improvement?

It takes a very long time to learn the product. It requires specialization for different functions. It would be better if it is was easier to implement without extensive training for it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Eight years using different versions.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How is customer service and technical support?

Not applicable.

How was the initial setup?

It was quite complex.

What other advice do I have?

Learn the overview of the product first before the investing time and effort on features which you may not use.
