NOTA DE PRENSA DE COGNOS USABURLINGTON, Mass., April 19 –The United States Marine Corps has selected an enterprise business intelligence (BI) solution from Cognos, the world leader in BI and corporate performance management solutions. The U.S. Marine Corps has purchased Cognos ReportNet and will integrate the solution into the Total Forces Administration System (TFAS) to enable approximately 225,000 active duty and active reserve personnel to access and report on personnel and payroll data. The U.S. Marine Corps needed a powerful reporting solution to make the information in TFAS, an award-winning, online personnel system, accessible to Marine Corps personnel globally. The focus of the TFAS system is to improve the existing system quality by automating the personnel administration function, increasing the individual accessibility to data and promoting self- service. TFAS can provide the typical Marine access to personal records such as payroll, performance evaluations, assignments, etc. via telephone and Internet connection – from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To meet the Intranet reporting challenge, the Marine Corps, a long- standing Cognos customer, selected Cognos ReportNet. «We needed a strong and secure web-reporting solution that would scale to support a globally distributed organization and protect the integrity of confidential personnel and payroll data,» said Major Steve Simmons, TFAS project officer. «After an extensive evaluation, we have selected Cognos ReportNet, which will deliver rich reporting and analysis capabilities, and help to streamline processes, eliminate duplication and make critical personnel information available to users on a self-service basis across the organization.» «It has become critical for government organizations to rethink their reporting requirements,» said Terence Atkinson, director of public sector solutions, Cognos. «Cognos ReportNet provides a powerful and massively scalable reporting solution that enables organizations to support all of their reporting requirements across the enterprise, via the web, resulting in improved organizational performance, faster response times, and quicker, more informed decision making processes.»
