Cognos and Composite Software Extend Strategic Relationship

Originally published March 24, 2006

Composite Software, a provider of on-demand data delivery, recently announced that the company has extended its strategic relationship with Cognos, a provider in business intelligence and corporate performance management. Under the expanded agreement, Cognos will sell Cognos 8 Report Packs – a set of out-of-the-box, frequently used reports for mySAP (R/3) and Siebel, built on Composite technology. Customers will now have pre-built reports for packaged applications that can be used immediately and customized easily on the Cognos 8 BI platform without needing to alter mySAP (R/3) and Siebel. The initial release of Cognos 8 Report Packs will contain over 60 reports each for mySAP (R/3) and Siebel, available separately.
Composite Software’s technology simplifies on-demand access to complex packaged applications, accelerating dashboard, single-view and ad-hoc reporting. Composite also enables mySAP (R/3) and Siebel data to be queried and delivered as Web services, allowing customers to easily incorporate these applications into their service-oriented architecture (SOA). 

Cognos 8 Report Packs extend the value of current enterprise investments by providing – for the first time – the ability to combine, in one report or dashboard, historic data from the data warehouse with current data in mySAP (R/3) and Siebel operational systems. As a result, organizations achieve the most complete view of enterprise performance while eliminating the cost and effort required for separate, operational reporting projects.

“Building custom reports for ERP or CRM packaged applications involves tough tasks, like accessing applications data through an integration tool and creating reports in a business intelligence tool,” said Philip Russom, Senior Manager of Research and Services at The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI). “This is time-consuming and somewhat risky in terms of making all the technology pieces work together. Using Composite and Cognos 8 Report Packs together can reduce the time and risk of reporting on mySAP and Siebel data.”
