With Cognos solutions, we have opened up a whole new world of possibility.

Alex Salvaggio, Finance and Budgeting Manager, Velan

Business Challenge story

Velan wanted to enhance decision-making with a better understanding of corporate performance. With vital data buried in spreadsheets, how could it shift its finance team’s focus from number-crunching to analysis?


Velan has automated and centralized its budgeting, forecasting and financial reporting processes with IBM® Cognos® solutions, freeing up time for analysis and meeting business demand for information.


Financial reports can be generated in hours rather than days, and are based on trusted data, equipping decision-makers with the actionable insights they need to guide Velan to even better performance.
