Cognos Analytics Training Information
Cognos is Western Michigan University's enterprise business intelligence solution. Content, including operational and strategic reporting and dashboards, is published to a Web-based portal, accessible here: https://cognmsp1.cc.wmich.edu/
Cognos is down overnight for scheduled database refreshes and is available each day at 7:30 AM.
For best results, remember to enable pop-up exceptions for Cognos. While most browsers are supported, Chrome (latest release), Internet Explorer (v. 11), Edge (v. 44), and Safari (v. 9 or higher) are recommended. To use Firefox, you will need the ESR version 68.
To request a Cognos account, please complete the Cognos access request form. The form is located within the Faculty/Staff Home tab of GoWMU at My Work -> All Links -> Data Access Center -> Request Cognos, DegreeWorks or ImageNow Access.
A recent user training session, which included instructions on how to navigate the portal and find and run content, was recorded and can be found in the WMU Mediasite portal.
