IBM® Cognos Command Center provides self-service process automation.

Through a single interface, it enables you to view and run automated processes on an ad hoc basis, and diagnose and address issues much more quickly. The solution reduces the complexity of working in diverse software environments and brings you greater simplicity and control, so you can focus on what matters most — your business.

IBM® Cognos Command Center is a useful tool for managing disparate tasks. For example, a cloud-based IBM® Planning Analytics system may periodically use a server-based database for data uploads. Without the Command Center, this would require a two-stage process, creating a secondary location for the output from the database to be used as a source for IBM® Planning Analytics. This would also apply for cloud-to-cloud interactions where customers host their ERP and databases remotely.
