"Cognos for Reconciliations"

What do you like best?

Cognos has been a huge help when it comes to reconciliation expenses between the two accounting code systems that I am required to use. Because my accounting systems do not feed into each other or utilize any of the same accounting codes. The reports I run in Cognos act as the middle-man for me to produce my reports.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Cognos has to update overnight and it seems to have processing errors often. When we need to make a correction to an account, I have to wait until the next day to pull accurate transaction histories. It would be extremely helpful if Cognos could be refreshed more often. (The time frame for which Cognos updates might be an entity IT decision and not an actual Cognos decision, but for now, this is what I dislike.)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Account reconciliations that provide information for monthly board reporting and the annual financial report and audit. The report I utilize the most is the Transaction History Report.

"Good software but expensive for personal use"

What do you like best?

I like how cognos makes it easy to build dashboards without having to go much in depth of the query building and optimization.

There are a few things which only an experienced person can figure out and pay attention to details. A beginner might miss out on things like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you get trained by an experienced professional before you start using it yourself.
