Cognos Assessment & Health Check

Get a free one-hour consultation

Blaming Cognos for poor performance and lack of user adoption is a common mistake. More often than not Cognos is not the culprit. Rather, the platform hasn’t been applied and maintained properly.

Some signs that indicate your Cognos environment needs TLC:

  • Slow performance/response times
  • Poor user adoption
  • Inability to access timely data
  • Slow data refreshes
  • Yet to achieve self-service reporting
