Case Study: Basler Kantonalbank (BKB) and Bank Cler



"IRIX made it possible to migrate existing reporting to the new version, which is a huge added value.  We are very satisfied with the deployment and support of iRIX and value its ease of use."

Business Analyst, Finance and Risk, Basel Cantonal Bank





After many years of operation with Cognos and the announced end of support for this release, the existing platform needs to be modernized.  However, the version change requires complex changes in dimensional reporting and the resulting quality assurance.  The transition requires all users to be trained on the new interface and the many dimensional reporting changes. 




iRIX is updating the platform with an update to Cognos 11 Analytics, bringing the system to stable operation.  This required some adjustments, such as temporary data storage (caching).  Existing Cognos 10 Reporting migrated iRIX to the new version.  Cognos 11 is also used by Bank Cler.  Bank Cler belongs to the BKB Group.





New Opportunities for the Customer

The new version offers additional features: Dashboards are much easier to build and can be created by the users themselves.  Also, some new time-filtering aspects have been provided by IBM that simplify relative time queries.  Among other things, this is the new dashboard feature of Cognos, which gives the customer another option over static reports.  With Cognos, the customer creates recurring data evaluations, such as  the monthly closing report.  Cognos is also used for technical analysis and dissemination of various key figures and statistics within the Group.
