Automated Financial and Narrative Reporting

Financial reporting and process automation

Certent CDM, formerly IBM Cognos Disclosure Management, is a secure, collaborative, reporting and process automation solution that enables finance and other business users to merge enterprise data with focused narrative analysis in a controlled, auditable environment.

Available for both on-premises and cloud deployment, CDM provides support for all narrative reporting in which you combine numbers and text. It integrates tightly with MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, exploiting the skills you already posses in these tools.
