CFCX Converter

A fast-track, risk-free migration path from Cognos Finance to Cognos Express.

Why move to IBM Cognos Express?

IBM Cognos Express has overtaken Cognos Finance with regards to functionality, flexibility, power and feel . It gives you the ability to utilise collaborative planning, scenario modelling and intuitive analysis.

Why Aramar?

We have a team of Cognos Finance trained consultants who have helped many businesses get the best from their Cognos Finance software and integrate it with their other systems.

What is CFCX?

  • A pre-built Cognos Express TM1 application consisting of some base dimensions and a number of processes which are used to build the new system
  • A control  file used to map the original Cognos Finance system
  • A set procedure that builds the new system from exported Cognos Finance data and metadata files

What you get

A one day review of your existing Cognos Finance application. This will establish your readiness for migration and confirm that your application can be ‘prepared’ within one consultancy day

  • One day ‘preparation’ of the existing Cognos Finance system ready for migration
  • Installation of Cognos Express*
  • One day of consultancy to perform the migration
  • One day of building reports
  • One day of administrator and report building training for up to six people

What is not included

  • Intercompany functionality -  This is more effectively provided by Cognos Controller. Our expert Controller consultants can perform this migration
  • Bespoke, complex functionality and complicated calculation rules identified in the review
  • The development of automated data feeds - Existing data feeds would be explored during the one day review. Establishing these data feeds to Cognos Express would be a separate development work

*Client must already own or purchase Cognos Express
