Cognos Business Intelligence is a web-based, integrated business intelligence suite by IBM. It provides a toolset primarily used for reporting data from our student information system, CX, but can also be integrated with other databases. The software consists of several components to meet the different information needs of HMC. Reporting is a powerful driving force in aiding to make informed decisions for many departments at HMC. Discovering trends, government reporting, and mailing lists are just a few examples of the ways these departments take advantage of this user-friendly access to information. Training, documentation, and report generation are available to HMC faculty and staff.
Account management is provided for Cognos users: Assigning privileges, capabilities, and access to Cognos reporting software and its various features.
