Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I love cognos. I can run any report, any time... past/present/future. So many options. Love the ability to create shortcuts to the reports I use on a daily basis as well. Quick & easy to use.

  • Very structured, Reporting features are very good and we can make use of various functions, Event studio tool is the most powerful.

  • Cons

  • the support from the consultant was great but costly.

  • The only hard thing is getting used to the reporting, but once you learn then it is smooth sailing!!

  • Pros

  • Piesync does a great job at keeping things between 2 platforms synced seamlessly. Setup is pretty easy, and the platform is easy to navigate through as well.

  • It does exactly what it says and just works quietly in the background without needing me to intervene.

  • Cons

  • There is a learning curve and being in the US, customer support is a bit hard to reach. Questions do get answered, but you have to be patient.

  • More data sources would be great, but they keep adding them all the time. Sometimes it appears to pause and more feedback would be good on what it's doing.
