IBM Cognos Review

It is very user-friendly. You can easily create cubes, reports and dashboards.

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for this solution is for analytics and monitoring event metrics.

How has it helped my organization?

It's very easy to use. You can use cubes, you can create reports and you can create dashboards in it. It's all in one. Also, the integration on Cognos Analytics with Cognos IT Analytics also is better. 

What is most valuable?

We have found this solution evolve over the years, it is now very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The charts and graphics are very weak. You can find some dashboards, but it is very rigid. It is not as fancy as what you find in another solution, like Microsoft BI.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered Microsoft BI.

What other advice do I have?

For planning, forecasting, in-boxing, modeling in general and for predicting numbers and doing work analysis, they are excellent.
