COGNOS IS BACK! For those of you who are thinking about migrating away from Cognos, think carefully about abandoning your investment when you already have a premier platform with all of the capabilities.  Instead, spend a little time taking a fresh look at what Cognos 11.2 already does and then compare the total cost of migration away from Cognos to the cost of improving the content of your existing Cognos platform. Read the story.
