Cognos is bolstering its performance management offering, with the capture of dashboard software maker Celequest.

The Canadian business intelligence (BI) firm said the addition of Celequest's self-service dashboard creation and real-time information monitoring technology would enhance its own performance management solution set.

The vendor said Celequest solutions would be likely to prove attractive to departments or firms with limited staff and IT resources, as they can be deployed quickly and at low cost.

"This gives us the opportunity to reach a new class of users who need to continuously monitor performance against key metrics and make decisions based on real-time, operation information," said Rob Rose, chief strategy officer at Cognos, adding that Celequest's dashboards were immediately interoperable with Cognos 8 BI.

Celequest's dashboards are also available as an appliance or via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

The technology is used by operational managers in industries such as financial services, manufacturing and retail.

Ventana Research CEO Mark Smith said the acquisition would provide Cognos with a complementary BI solution that delivered on the operational intelligence across an enterprise.
