Cabot Partners concludes: IBM Cognos Analytics pays for itself in about a year (or less)
It’s no secret that analytics can provide great insight and
give you the opportunity to transform your organization. But analytics tools aren’t
free, and the advantages of new insights and better workflow are hard to
measure. How do you quantify the value of working better, faster and smarter?
That’s why Cabot Partners undertook a quantitative assessment

The short answer: yes. Their report details the impact of
Cognos Analytics on four quantifiable areas of the business:
In each area, Cabot Partners analyzed the effect for three
different sizes of business. The results were striking. Even the least
efficient configuration—an on-premises deployment in a small enterprise of 40
users—recouped its investment within 13 months. A large organization using
Cognos Analytics on Cloud earned payback within 5 months.
