I have used IBM Cognos for 15 years as a business user, but for most of this time I only used the basic functionality of Cognos with Analysis Studio. However, two years ago we started using the new version of Cognos (11) and it was then that we began using more functionality overall. Notably, there are more features for reporting, so we can simply create modules and explore them with dashboarding. Our deployment is situated on-premises, although we do use external databases connected to Excel, for instance. The packages that we use are all made inside the Cognos 11 environment.

When we started with the TM1 version of IBM Cognos, we developed budgeting projects, and it was successful. We also completed our first project five years ago using the solution. IBM Cognos is an excellent solution for tax, planning, budgeting, profit and loss statements and balance sheets. We use it monthly for our tax numbers, and the solution automatically provides them. The solution can be used for projects focused on employees' wages, contracts, contracted salaries, and additional outcomes. With IBM Cognos Report Studio, we have a lot of operational information, which helps with sales, inventories, and costs from many different sources. We have an analytical team, and they complete reports. We shuttle them, and many people in our company get information in Excel and email.

Most of my customers are on-premise, but I have two customers who are on the cloud. IBM Cognos is used for reporting and I work with all businesses, but mainly in the banking and insurance industry.

I am an IT project manager. We take the commercial data of one of our operators and use this information traffic as our ticketing service. These are very traditional and static needs that are being deployed.

The pricing of this product is meant for medium to large-scale enterprises. These higher licensing costs are why we recommend Pentaho or Talend for the SME segment. For them, they have to minimize the total cost of ownership. This segment is also interested in open-source enterprise solutions, which will reduce their costs to a large extent.
