With finance organizations increasingly focusing on the quality and not the quantity of data, data cleansing has become a prime focus of business intelligence (BI) software providers. Now, BI software leader Cognos Inc., based in Ottowa, Ont., has announced an expansion of its nine-year partnership with Redwood City, Calif.-based Informatica Corp., a leading developer of data cleansing software. Cognos has raised Informatica to the level of a strategic partner and will resell Informatica data quality products and services. “Data quality is becoming top of mind for CFOs because of increased scrutiny on the [financial reporting] numbers,” says Harriet Fryman, associate vice president of marketing at Cognos. She adds that the spotlight on quality is also a consequence of the maturing business performance management market. “The first hurdle [for finance executives] was data access and getting the tools to interact with the data,” Fryman says. “But to make strategic decisions, business executives need to know that the data is right.”
