UAE-based Great Circle has turned to Cognos to boost its business intelligence (BI) capabilities. The diversified industrial group will work with BSG, a Cognos partner in the Middle East, to deploy an enterprise-wide reporting and performance management solution. “We are taking an iterative prototyping approach to the implementation to ensure we deliver a system that is of ongoing value to the business,” said Ajith Kumar, IT manager at Great Circle. “We expect to increase the speed and efficiency of our reporting and provide powerful analytic capability to our business users.” The Cognos 8 solution selected by Great Circle is intended to enhance business reporting and analysis across the company. The solution will aggregate disparate data from multiple sources to boost business visibility for decision makers across all departments. Senior management will access summarised information via interactive dashboards. “Cognos 8 BI allows us to be the owners of the data and have ready access,” added Sairavi N., financial controller at Great Circle. “This solution reduces the need to run around to track down the information you need when you need it. We will now have the flexibility to deliver reports quickly, efficiently and when we need them.” Raheel Khan, regional manager at BSG, added: “Great Circle’s selection of Cognos 8 BI is demonstrative of our competitive edge in the business intelligence market. Our enterprise-wide solution is the only solution on a single web services architecture that will help businesses gain better insights into their organisation by putting the information into the hands of decision makers.” Great Circle, which started out as a shipping company back in 1973, has grown to cover numerous sectors including paper, chemicals, manufacturing and real estate.
