Jenzabar, Inc. is extending its long-standing partnership with Cognos by offering the powerful Cognos 8 Business Intelligence suite to new and existing Jenzabar customers.
In conjunction with the Jenzabar family of administrative solutions, Cognos 8 BI will deliver a complete range of BI capabilities to Jenzabar clients: reporting, analysis, scorecarding, dashboards, and business event management as well as data integration on a single, proven architecture. The solution will also deliver powerful search functionality for both BI and Enterprise Search. Cognos 8 BI offers schools a simplified BI environment that improves user adoption, enables better decision-making, and serves as an enterprise-scale foundation for performance management.
Cognos 8 BI is available now through Jenzabar to both new and existing customers. By engaging Jenzabar technical services, the new Cognos solution can be seamlessly integrated, deployed, and used within an institution’s Jenzabar system.
“We are very pleased to be expanding our long-term relationship with Cognos,” said Robert Maginn, Chairman and CEO of Jenzabar. “BI reporting is critical for campus executives and administrators. This solution will give those executives very important intelligence that is easily accessible. It will enable better decisions and drive our client institutions toward even greater success.”
“This offering provides our customers with a dramatically richer and productive client-facing campus-wide reporting and analysis framework,” added James Lastowski, Jenzabar’s Product Manager for Reporting Strategy. “Schools will have very easy access to the transactional data that exists in their ERP systems, and they will have a reporting environment that is very simple and efficient. With Cognos 8 BI, a reporting environment that once needed 400 reports to supply the necessary information to decision-makers might only need 80 reports to supply that same intelligence.”
