IBM Cognos Controller

Financial consolidation and reporting made easy

Accurate, auditable close, consolidation and reporting - a solution that enables finance teams to automate and accelerate the financial close with minimal IT support. Where complex ownership, intercompany trading, multi-currency, multiple GAAP and changing group structures are a problem, we recommend Controller to provide clarity, accuracy, integrity and stability.

Controller is easy for accountants to adopt and can be owned and managed completely by the Finance function, with no intervention required from IT.  It integrates fully with IBM Cognos TM1, Cognos BI and CDM, making Group Finance data available for reporting, analysis and planning.

In Focus:

  • Administration owned by finance, not IT
  • Enterprise scalability
  • Meets range of reporting standards
  • Workflow
  • Audit trail
  • Automatic data reconciliation
  • Automatic elimations
  • Automatic currency translation
  • Reporting
  • Option to integrate with Microsoft Excel
  • Flexible security
  • Integration with a variety of systems

The move to IBM Cognos Controller on Cloud was a success, we’re now using a modern version of the software and we won’t have to worry about staying current in the future. This not only saves time for our IT team; it also puts us in an even stronger position in terms of auditing and compliance, with support for the latest IFRS standards. Premier Foods
Before we could move to the cloud, we needed to do a pretty big upgrade to our existing system, including moving to a new consolidation engine. Since Controller is a critical system for Premier Foods, we wanted to mitigate risk during the transition, so we looked for an experienced partner. Aramar is one of the few companies in the UK with Controller expertise—they have dedicated Controller consultants, and they had already helped several other companies migrate to the cloud.
