Cognos Announces A Global Collaboration Agreement with IBS

Originally published February 9, 2006

Cognos, a provider in business intelligence and corporate performance management, recently announced it has signed a global collaboration agreement with IBS AB. As part of the agreement, Cognos 8 Business Intelligence will be offered as an integrated part of the IBS Business System, which is used to handle the supply of goods, customer relations and financial control. It will provide customers with access to a powerful tool for controlling efficiency in the supply chain.

"By collaborating with Cognos, we can now offer our customers a complete and powerful solution for business analysis," said Mark Cockings, Vice President of IBS Global Software. "Our business intelligence solution is customized to support customer business processes and includes SCOR-metrics to enable the measurement and comparison of the results of the operation with other companies, within and outside of our own industry. In combining our data warehouse with Cognos' reporting capabilities, the customer receives optimal business support. This is a major competitive advantage for our customers."

IBS' general solution for business intelligence and enterprise performance management (EPM) collects information from the customer's business system and other external sources, such as data from customers and suppliers in the supply chain, as a basis for analysis and decision support. The application contains numeric values and methodology for the SCOR logistics standard, which looks at important management ratios in the customer's operations to identify how well its supply chain functions.
   
Through this agreement with Cognos, IBS will now be able to increase its offerings within EPM and deliver an integrated solution with the Cognos 8 BI product suite providing powerful business support that can be used to analyze and control everything from demand-responsive manufacturing, logistics, purchasing to economy and finance. The companies will also be working together on joint sales and marketing opportunities.
