A Narrative Reporting Solution...... IBM Cognos Disclosure Management

For many mid-size companies, creating annual, quarterly, or monthly narrative reports is a time consuming, resource intensive and error-prone process. Organizations combine text, tables, charts, and financial data that are cut and pasted into the final narrative report.

Cognos Disclosure Management takes this manual, disjointed process and wraps it into an automation platform that provides a secure, collaborative reporting process.

 87% of finance executives reported that moderate (56%) or

substantial (31%) management time is required to analyze, approve,

and review the narrative portions of financial reports.

By connecting directly to the data source (Excel, TM1 databases, etc.) financial numbers are automatically updated ensuring a single version of the truth and confidence in the narrative report.

This automation solution enables users to merge enterprise data with focused narrative analysis in a controlled, auditable environment.

Key Features:

  • Enterprise disclosure management—Combine financial data from a variety of sources with in-depth narrative analysis for internal and external reporting across any department.
  • Financial management process automation—Replace time-consuming manual processes with intelligent process design and automation.
  • Security, control and governance—Manage documents in a collaborative yet secure environment with visibility into the report generation process.
  • Multi-jurisdictional XBRL support—Enable multi-national organizations to use a single reporting/tagging solution.
