    Cognos Disclosure Management (CDM) Introduction

    Stefan Constantinides


  • © 2014 IBM Corporation

    CDM Deployed at Amazon

    HUGE time saver!!! – Now with using CDM it takes 5 minutes to generate the monthly executive level report

    that used to take a minimum of 3 hours to cobble together.

     CDM is rapidly becoming irreplaceable at Amazon.

    – One of the Amazon team described it to me as something as essential as turning the

    lights on.

     How?

    Data Warehouse


    • The template forms

    are replicated across

    many solo and group


    • Complicated /

    extensive XBRL

    requires forensic

    review and validation.

    • Data sources may not

    be synchronised but

    all templates need to

    tie out with one


    • Every instance must

    change when the

    source changes.


    Data Sources

    Specific and underlying reporting problems

    Modelling Engine

    Risk Management

    The Collaborative Problem • Documents and information are shared on a

    network drive or passed around via email, text

    messages, notes or yellow sticky pads

    • No version control to coordinate contributions to

    the report

    • No approval process or audit trail to ensure

    consensus of one version of the truth

    • No visibility or control over the process or

    sources of information

    The Cut and Paste Problem • Reports are disconnected from their sources

    • Last minute changes to actual results, budgets or

    forecasts drive extensive rework

    • Data integrity can be compromised

    • Iterative change and control process complex to

    coordinate and time consuming

    The ―What Changed‖ Problem •Executives want to understand the updates from

    the previous presentation.

    •FP&A wants control over the reporting process.

    •What happens if a change was made incorrectly?

    •Who made what changes and why?

    The ―Do it Again‖ Problem •Every month means all reports need to be

    updated to reflect the current p
