Upgrade to Tableau from Cognos

You need “speed to insight” … you’ve heard about Tableau Data Visualization, now it’s easy to upgrade to Tableau from Cognos!

Remember when fax machines were new and shiny? That’s when Cognos software was created. Stop using technology that hasn’t kept up with current innovations. Your business benefits greatly by taking a modern approach to business intelligence that is faster, less costly in money and time, and more agile.

Read our blog: 5 Compelling Reasons to Move from Cognos to Tableau.

Customers tell us Cognos is challenging

  • It takes too long to update or meet new reporting needs
  • Annual maintenance costs from IBM are too high with little incremental benefit
  • No insight from the report factory, and users are not using the reports being produced
  • Software licenses are on the shelf, not being used, and incurring unnecessary expense

Tableau Software offers advantages over legacy Cognos BI

  • Highest customer satisfaction as rated by Gartner
  • Best user experience to create ad-hoc analysis, reports, and dashboards
  • Self-service analytics with very little IT involvement (IT doesn’t have to be your report-generator!)
  • You can start small. Try, test, and learn what Tableau can do for your business
