Cognos - A good Enterprise Reporting Tool

3,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I used Cognos as an analytical tool by linking our ERP (Microsoft Dynamic NAV) to it. All the financial data would be mapped & a lot of customized reports were taken out like Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). The user interface is pretty good. The CUBEs are little confusing but once you get the grip they work very well. The ability to drill down the reports to very basic level is a plus point
A little tough to learn & customize. It's a little slow when dealing with a medium amount of data.

Vorteile:

Easily integrating with most of the ERPs, very good for customizing reports, very detailed reporting

Nachteile:

Tough to learn & not many resources available, you will get the value of the money invested in it only if you are able to get the most out of it

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been using Cognos BI for many years for data reporting and performance analysis. Our business analysts were constantly complaining about the long delays to get data extracts. Withe Cognos Analytics we were in a position to give the BA access to pertinent data extracts in record time and with minimum hands-on training. This empowered them and allowed them to spend more time on building predictions and preparing recommendations for corrective actions.

Vorteile:

The quick learning curve which turns every intuition into a positive experience

Nachteile:

The story telling capabilities are not seamless enough and consume too much efforts to be reach the desired effect.

Excellent software is easy to implement and use.

5,0 vor 12 Monaten

Kommentare: I utilized it to complete projects as part of my Coursera studies; it is taught step by step, and cloud computing was much more familiar to me. On a monthly basis, we do key reconciliations to predict, and reports allow us to record all data pieces. IBM Cognos Analytics recognizes business demands and improves job productivity; it can manage big volumes of data; and it makes it extremely simple for all departments to build reports to see the data. While reporting, you may effortlessly combine numerous searches or arrange your data; no background or technical expertise is necessary.

Vorteile:

The software is highly intuitive since it recognizes the demands of the business and promotes work productivity; it can manage a big quantity of data and allows all departments to easily build reports to examine the data. While reporting, you may effortlessly combine numerous searches or arrange your data; no background or technical expertise is necessary. The process is quite fluid, and compared to other cloud services I've tried, IBM Cognos offers a well-designed interface that is simple to educate personnel on. Reports give significant detail that can be exported and edited to explain crucial choices. They are simple to run and compatible with office applications.

Nachteile:

Reports may take some time to execute depending on their size; reporting software may include cautions about where students committed errors and the report will not run; alternatively, more thorough instructions for new employees are provided. You obviously require proper training, and anyone who aren't familiar with SQL will struggle to put it up. I've been seeing some delays while switching sites or loading materials, but I appreciate IBM's ability to work on this issue.

IBM Cognos Analytics 11

4,0 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: Cognos Analytics is currently meeting our financial and operational reporting needs.

Vorteile:

We like the ability to create custom reports to meet user requirements. This includes being able to link data coming from databases using Cognos Framework Manager, plus the ability to create SQL select queries within Cognos that pull data directly from custom SQL objects. We also appreciate that Cognos Analytics still supports the use of Portals that we created in a previous version of the product. Other features that we appreciate are Bursting, Conditional Styling and Rendering, Exports to Excel and PDF, and drill-through reports, to name a few.

Nachteile:

Crosstabs could use more features and provide more flexibility in formatting.

Powerful, Reliable, Expensive

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I've been working with IBM Cognos since version 8.4
I like this product and see how IBM is improving it.

Vorteile:

It's been a long on the market. It's offered by IBM It has a great integration with many databases

Nachteile:

New version (CA 11) has some inconvenient UI changes (new side panel which does not allow to easily navigate and see all properties) Many things need to be done manually instead of integrating as best practices (security, deployments, testing, version control, etc.) New studios are not that intuitive / transparent

My Review of IBM Cognos Analytics

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I use IBM Cognos daily, as this is the tool made available by SAP Concur to work with Business Intelligence reports. I use it to provide the necessary information to those who require it, and it works more or less like a database, where you can apply SQL language - but in a slightly different format.

Vorteile:

I think this tool is quite good, since it allows the user several functionalities: create and adapt BI reports, automate the export of a report in a set period and for the necessary containers (they do not need a license to receive), etc. . I love working with this tool from IBM. It allows some SQL language, and some configuration features that are very good too.

Nachteile:

One thing I can point out as a cons of this tool, is the fact that it does not always return the correct information (because the user, without knowing it, can mix incompatible information) - and only at a more advanced stage do we notice that the information is not correct - because we have no error information. When we actually have information about the errors, this is also not very detailed, that is, we are left without knowing what the error is anyway. It is difficult to make correct associations in this tool, because it is very restricted in relation to the use of the database and the compatibility of the data between them.

valuable yet expensive

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: overall its good and it is one of the initiators in the reporting market. We are still using it and find it quite useful to fulfill our client requirements.

Vorteile:

you can combine multiple queries in one report to create your desired report, which can be formatted in multiple ways to meet your desired structure.

Nachteile:

its little bit tricky to handle. You need to understand it thoroughly which actually takes time to began working with it from scratch. Also lacks the graphics and user interface.

A self-service analytics platform that is able to fulfill almost all BI needs

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Handles all BI products very well, including but not limited to self-served reporting structure, reports, cubes, dashboards, and scorecards. Project deployment and duplication are easy and quick.

Nachteile:

User administration could be very time-consuming and we use a third-party tool (which is not free of charge). Product upgrade is not simple enough and has to be planned and conducted with extra caution.

Reviewing IBM Cognos Analytics

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have a pretty decent experience with cognos with some of the new inbuilt features but there is always a scope of improvement

Vorteile:

I love the fact that Cognos Analytics is so flexible as we deal with a lot of reports which needs to be emailed to the higher authorities as and when they run. Cognos has this inbuild feature, where it can also write the reports to the internal file system. This helps us to keep a track of the recipients of the reports.

Nachteile:

The Cognos 10 version was a little laid back on the visualization side as it did not had much interactive visuals available for reporting. But they have overcome it in Cognos 11 version.

IBM Cognos Analytics allows me to access our data warehouse

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I mainly use it to get data from the customer information system. Cognos allows me access to customer information without getting access to the other system.

Vorteile:

We use Cognos to access our customer info. The IT team set ups the report and we are able to export it for viewing and analysis. If built correctly, the reports can be easily run by the users. The users do need to know how to enter the parameters and known the data structure to fully utilitzed Cognos. We run Cognos through the browser. No need to install software.

Nachteile:

Users need to understand the data structure in order to enter parameters. If the parameters are not entered correct, there will be no data, exports, or graphs. You also need to make sure the back-end servers are fast if you have a lot of data.

One of the best time keeping software in the market

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

Most employers love this software because it is easy for employees to use. Since it is fast, efficient, simple, and does its job well. You can also run great reports in it too.

Nachteile:

Sometimes the software has a glitch here and there, but every product does. I am sure there are less expensive products on the market, but why use something that isn't tried and true?

Cognos Sucks!

1,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

Cognos has some good time based accounting features that allow you to go back and look at how much was booked and when.

Nachteile:

Getting the Cognos reports to match up. Some reports update once a week others are daily. This makes it difficult to see how much is actually going to be spent. Having to pull multiple reports to get the information that is needed wastes time.
