Cognos has strengthened its bonds with IBM by adding its workforce performance management expertise to IBM’s human resources offerings.
Cognos 8 Workforce Performance software will now be delivered as part of IBM’s human capital management (HCM) outsourcing service. Linking BI capabilities into HCM will enable clients to analyse workforce trends such as staff churn, compensation and performance ratings.
“IBM and Cognos share a common vision for providing cost-effective solutions that enable organisations to more effectively deal with significant human resources issues such as the greying workforce, impending skills gap and increased market competition for talent," said Cognos vice-president of product marketing, Doug Barton.
This announcement is part of a wider development, marketing and sales partnership announced by the two companies last March.
