Plan for the future with IBM Cognos 8 Planning

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 | News | Architecture and Analysis

Packt Publishing is happy to announce the ongoing success of their recent enterprise-targeted book IBM Cognos 8 Planning. Written by Ned Riaz, Jason Edwards and Rich Babaran, who bring a combined thirty years of rich business modelling and planning experience, the book takes a practical approach to the development and deployment of budget and forecasting models.

IBM Cognos 8 Planning is a business modelling and planning solution, which enables mission-centric business strategies to be turned into discrete, quantifiable plans, forecasts and budgets. Due to its dynamic nature and accurate modelling, IBM Cognos 8 Planning offers great benefits to any mid-sized to large organisation.

Through the use of pragmatic examples and step-by-step instructions, made simple by the authors’ extensive knowledge, IBM Cognos 8 Planning helps first-time developers to create and implement effective planning models for their organisations. Both the Analyst and Contributor programmes are covered in depth, providing a thorough guide to business modelling in IBM Cognos 8 Planning.

Co-author and long-term IBM Cognos consultant Ned Riaz states that he has “learned both from seasoned consultants, and from model developers and administrators, that one collective and concise ‘refresher’ guide on Cognos Planning, covering all programs and utilities, is always needed – especially when skills get rusty due to not using a specific functionality for a long period of time. I believe that my co-authors and I successfully satisfy our readers’ needs. Although the IBM Cognos Planning documentation is great for a quick reference, I am able to share my real-world functional and technical experience with Cognos Planning in this book, and to point out when a reader should or should not use a specific product feature.”

Written for beginners to planning development of IBM Cognos 8 Planning, many of whom have commented favourably on its clarity, the book is out now, having been published by Packt Publishing. For more information, visit http://www.packtpub.com/cognos-8-planning/book/cog77
