YouTube find: MB Dashboards for Cognos 8


A UK company called morgan benjamin (lower case on purpose) has developed a sharp looking dashboarding tool for Cognos 8 business intelligence. From the visuals, it seems to integrate nicely into the Cognos suite and is available for all Cognos 8 releases.

Key features:
  • Data driven ticker
  • Pop up & Transition facilities
  • Zoom Functionality
  • Links to other Studios (Report Studio, Analysis Studio, Query Studio)
  • Animated KPI’s
  • Content and functionality Rich Dashboards created in hours not weeks
  • Compatible with all versions of Cognos 8
  • Leverages your in house report studio skills
  • Employs professionally designed graphical layout
  • Multiple templates and colour schemes
  • Simple to add corporate identity
  • Allows users to add comments to dashboards
  • Links seamlessly with existing reports, cubes and data sources
I'm most interested in the ability to add comments or annotations to reports although I have read that this type of functionality will be included when Cognos 8.4 is released.
