The business value of reporting is simple: it not only communicates a company's performance, but helps the company understand it. With it, executives, managers and business users can take action on recent information. It creates a common context for decision-making in every department and at every level.
Reporting is an integral part of performance management. However, IT departments and report authors can be challenged when they try to deliver these simple values to a wide variety of users with different needs and from a wide variety of different data sources. The past limitations of reporting technology, such as its traditional inability to address these requirements, once prevented the much discussed but seldom delivered “single view of the truth” that modern organizations need.
Fortunately, because of new technologies, this is no longer the case. IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence Reporting helps authors create reports that meet the needs of everyone in your organization. Read this white paper to learn how!
