Business scenarios and roles to take advantage of IBM Business Analytics - IBM Cognos

In this, we present a business scenario that integrates the IBM Cognos TM1, IBM Cognos Planning, and IBM Cognos Controller applications with IBM Cognos BI. This scenario shows how to provide a reporting source for IBM Cognos BI professional authors and analysts. After reporting sources for each of the IBM Cognos Financial Performance Management applications are provided, you can use the reporting techniques that we discuss in this book to create IBM Cognos BI content.

In addition, this scenario shows how to integrate the IBM Cognos TM1 applications in the dashboard to allow business users a single place to complete the following activities:

  • Managed planning through an intuitive workflow process
  • What-if analysis
  • Reporting and analysis on planned and actual data

Each of the IBM Cognos Financial Performance Management applications hold critical business information for planning, budgeting, forecasting, financial consolidations, product costing, workforce information, and other information, depending on the models that are defined within the applications. This information is valuable and must be presented to decision-makers on a timely basis along with the capability for the decision-maker to perform analysis and drill-down to details. IBM Cognos BI and the integration between the IBM Cognos Financial Performance Management applications provide these capabilities.

We use the following roles in these sections:

  • Modeler:John Walker (skills include IBM Cognos TM1 and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence Framework Manager).
  • Professional Report Author: Lynn Cope (skills include report and dashboard authoring)
