Business Challenge story
A large-scale ERP systems implementation combined with substantial business process transformation threatened the viability of Columbia Sportswear’s existing finance reporting and planning processes. How could the company maintain and eventually enhance the flow of information to key decision makers?
Working with Aviana, an IBM Business Partner, Columbia Sportswear implemented IBM® Cognos® TM1® and integrated the solution with its existing IBM Cognos Business Intelligence software and ERP systems.
Harmonizing data and streamlining planning and reporting processes enables analysts to provide global information to decision makers, avoiding days of manual workarounds and information delays.
