Cognos Enterprise Planning Applications

Cognos provides an integrated financial package with its Cognos Finance application. The application allows you to manage financial processes central to your business, and provides flexible options in the management of closings, general financial reporting, planning, forecasting and budgeting.

The acquisition of Adaytum, a large player in the planning and forecasting field, is expected to enhance the general Enterprise Planning category of Cognos applications, providing for more advanced features, such as capabilities to automate highly sophisticated business logic and so forth. Cognos Finance is strong in the consolidation arena, providing a unified view of enterprise operations and results. Web deployment, similar in most respects to that of the “core” applications in Upfront, is an available option.
