Cognos has launched an enterprise portal partner (EPP) program which will give customers a single view of information.
Customers using portals such as Corechange, InfoImage, Plumtree Software, SageMaker and Viador will have access to managed reporting, multidimensional analysis, ad hoc query and visualization.
Through the EPP program, portal vendors will optimize their solutions to seamlessly integrate with Cognos Upfront. By integrating Cognos business intelligence into their portal of choice, customers can search, review and analyze information.
Cognos has developed a suite of gadgets that empower joint customers to query strategic data sources on market trends, customer buying habits, channel performance and profitability from personalized portal pages.
“Putting services from Cognos’ business intelligence solution in the Plumtree Corporate Portal as Plumtree Portal Gadgets allows anyone in the enterprise to view Cognos’ analyses of information in data warehouses, data marts and legacy data stores, every day,” said Sam Charrington, director of business development at Plumtree.
“Cognos business intelligence is a natural complement to our InfoImage Freedom enterprise decision portal, providing intuitive and personalized access and analysis of key business data from disparate sources,” said David Duckworth, vice president strategic alliances and channels at InfoImage. “As part of Cognos’ Enterprise Portal Partner program, our customers will have access to powerful, insightful information that enable them to uncover innovative new business opportunities.”
“Viador has always understood the importance of accessing and sharing business information within a large enterprise,” said Robert Craig, vice president of strategic marketing at Viador. “Cognos’ EPP program enables us to deliver vital corporate data to enterprise customers, suppliers and partners through the Viador self-service portal.”
