Cognos Performance Blueprints

Just as buying a scale won't make you weigh less, buying software won't make your company perform better, or put you in compliance with all the various regimes you need to be in compliance with. You also have to eat less, exercise more, and set in place the reporting and management processes to make the most of your new software.

This is now easier for users of the Cognos 8 Controller and Cognos 8 Business Intelligence applications, as the vendor has introduced a series of Performance Blueprints - sets of processes, best practices and pre-built reports that can help companies improve their efficiency in different areas of financial management. The three currently available are the Close, Consolidate, Report Performance Blueprint; the Management and Financial Reporting Performance Blueprint; and the International Financial Reporting Standards Performance Blueprint.

Price: Free for Cognos users.
