Cognos Business Intelligence Features
Smarter Decisions. Better Results.
With the ability to interact, search and assemble all perspectives of your business, Cognos Business Intelligence provides a limitless BI workspace to support how people think and work. It delivers the complete range of BI capabilities: query and reporting, analysis, dashboarding and scorecarding on a single, service-oriented architecture (SOA). And it expands traditional business intelligence (BI) with planning, scenario modeling, real-time monitoring, collaboration and predictive analytics, to extend your BI capabilities.
Query and Reporting
Cognos query and reporting capabilities ensure users are equipped with the information they need to make fact-based decisions in a system that's simpler, faster and easier to manage. From professional report authors who design one-to-many reports for the enterprise, to business users who need to create their own ad-hoc queries or customise existing reports, Cognos query and reporting capabilities fits the needs of users across the organisation.
Cognos analysis capabilities allows all users to explore information easily and intuitively to drive better, smarter business decisions. From general business users who can easily view, assemble and analyse the information required to make smarter decisions, to business and financial analysts who need more advanced, predictive or what-if analysis capabilities, Cognos analysis capabilities enable all users across the organisation to outperform.
Cognos dashboard capabilities allow any user to access, interact and personalise content in a way that supports the unique way they make decisions. Secure access to information from all time horizons including Business Intelligence, Real-time Monitoring, SPSS and Cognos TM1 means that users can quickly move from insight to action.
Cognos scorecarding capabilities enable organisations to capture corporate strategy and communicate that strategy at the operational level. It helps executives and managers provide quantifiable goals and targets and allows them to track performance across business units, operating subsidiaries and geographic regions to quickly identify the areas that need attention.
Cognos features real-time monitoring capabilities for consumers of actionable business intelligence. It provides an organisation's frontline employees with a rich view of operational KPIs and measures to support up-to the-moment decision making.
Cognos statistics capabilities, powered by IBM SPSS Statistics Engine, make it easy to incorporate statistical results with core business reporting, reducing the time it takes to analyse data and prepare business presentations based on that analysis.
Empower users across your organisation with the business intelligence (BI) they need to make to make effective, fact-based decisions. Cognos Business Intelligence provides solutions to ensure users have consistent, trusted and relevant BI, when, where and how they need it, with Cognos Mobile, Cognos Active Report, Cognos for Microsoft Office and Cognos Mashup Service.
Collaboration capabilities within Cognos Business Intelligence facilitate decision-making for groups and teams. With this solution, users can build stronger relationships and learn from history with a centralised, searchable corporate memory. Cognos Collaboration helps teams maximise their efficiency and ensure the most effective use of resources when making important decisions.
So where do you start?
The Cortell team will work with you to identify your organisation’s biggest and highest priority challenge to kick off the initiative ... where Business Intelligence will have the greatest impact.
We work with you and your team from the Proof of Concept phase to a fully executed enterprise deployment of BI.
If BI is to extend beyond tactical deployments to become a broader-based solution, a managed, predictable approach is needed.
The Cortell team will help you build a Business Intelligence Competency Centre (BICC).
A BICC is essential to the strategic deployment of BI because it:
- maximizes the efficiency, use and quality of your BI across all lines of business
- leads to BI deployments that have higher success and deliver more value, at less cost, in less time
- drives end user adoption to ensure its success (simply providing BI to an increasing number of information consumers doesn’t guarantee more people will use it)
- eliminates the gap between Business and IT
- enables business agility and improved technology management which will help to drive business efficiency.
