FileNet and Cognos Extend Alliance

Originally published November 9, 2005

FileNet Corp., a provider of enterprise content management and business process management solutions, and Cognos, a provider in business intelligence and corporate performance management, recently announced the two companies have extended their partnership to deliver demonstrable process-enabling business performance management, geared to helping organizations make faster and more effective decisions at the most relevant points in a business process.

Under terms of the extended agreement, FileNet and Cognos will co-operatively market their respective platforms, the FileNet P8 platform and Cognos 8 Business Intelligence, to customers. The two companies will now be able to deliver jointly-developed solution templates that create frameworks for easy application deployments, and provide a holistic view of business process and business intelligence information through a number of integration points.
   
For customers, an integrated FileNet-Cognos offering improves productivity by delivering relevant information at the point in the business process where key decisions must be made. Making business performance data useful to a wide range of employees helps strengthen decision-making across the enterprise, provides greater insight into how work is accomplished, and enables companies to close the gaps between current and desired operational performance goals. Furthermore, organizations can quickly detect a performance trend or issue, then automatically launch a business process in response to this alert.
  
"Cognos and FileNet's commitment to delivering business intelligence embedded in the process holds significant promise for forward-looking organizations like SunTrust," said James "Bubba" Small, Senior Vice-President, Senior Delivery Manager at SunTrust Banks, Inc. "As one of the largest commercial banking organizations in the United States, it is fundamental to our ongoing success that we arm our knowledge workers with up-to-date business intelligence data when it matters most, during key decision-intensive pointsof the business process."
