Interfacing's EPC Leverages IBM Cognos Business Intelligence to Bridge Processes to Performance



    New partnership integrates Interfacing's Process Management framework
    with Cognos' Performance Management and Business Intelligence Solution

    MONTREAL and BOSTON, June 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Interfacing Technologies
Corporation has announced a partnership agreement with Cognos, an IBM company
and world leader in business intelligence and performance management
solutions, that will integrate IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (BI) and
Performance Management with Interfacing's Enterprise Process Center(R) (EPC)
(http://interfacing.com/Products/enterprise-bpm) business process management
(BPM) suite as the new EPC Performance Module
(http://interfacing.com/Products/performance-management).
    The EPC Performance Module gives users a powerful set of dashboards and
reports based on the real-time process information available within the EPC's
Datamart repository. The EPC supports the full range of 3rd party reporting
tools, but through this partnership with Cognos a deeper level of integration
is introduced to provide business users with one central portal for all
Process, Document, Risk and now BI/Performance related information.
    "The 'Intelligence' in BI lies with the ability to extract and display
valuable information - this is crucial to efficient management of company
processes, ensuring transparency and ownership throughout all levels of the
organization," says Meir Levi, Interfacing's CEO. "We pride ourselves in
simplifying the complexity for business users - that is why we chose Cognos
whom we found to bring the power of BI to the business level. We want every
manager to quickly access the information critical to their processes to
ensure compliance and quality."
    "Interfacing's integrated approach to managing processes, knowledge,
people and applications is unique in the BPM field. Their single platform
design will help companies unify their management, transformation, and
governance tasks, while staying flexible enough to encourage agile company
growth," said Ted Jandl, Vice President, OEM Partner Channels at Cognos.
"Executives will now gain a powerful perspective on their company, letting
them understand what is happening, why, and what corrective actions must be
taken to help the organization succeed."
    Interfacing selected the IBM Cognos solution because of its advanced
architecture and ease of use for non-technical business users. With Cognos'
robust features, business users will be able to build and schedule custom
reports related to their process and organization performance and perform
queries without specialized technical knowledge.
