  31. 31. © 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?
  32. 32. © 2014 IBM Corporation Contributors Approvers Report Consumers Reviewers Document Managers Consolidations ERP Data Warehouse OLAP • The template forms are replicated across many solo and group entities. • Complicated / extensive XBRL requires forensic review and validation. • Data sources may not be synchronised but all templates need to tie out with one another. • Every instance must change when the source changes. Enterprise 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 period • Title pages • Date references in text • Narrative comments • Dates that drive the data reported • Data reported
  33. 33. © 2014 IBM Corporation 33 IBM CDM  Leverages Existing tools in Use; Word, Excel, etc.  Reports directly integrated with data sources so they can be rolled forward. Master documents can be cascaded.  Changes dynamically updated in reports eg numbers within text  Provides a powerful multi-user, collaborative environment  Workflow and version controls deliver process transparency  Evidence of compliance, report validation, access control and audit trails reduce operational risk  Reports driven from a single, secure database so stakeholders and consumers get a consistent view  Multiple output formats  Integrated XBRL taxonomy, XBRL validation and pre-tagged template reports Consolidations ERP OLAP Data Warehouse Contributors Document Managers Reviewers Compliance Checklists Business Rules Security Stakeholders Consumers EDGAR Modelling Engine Risk Management How IBM Cognos Disclosure Management (CDM) addresses the problems
  34. 34. © 2014 IBM Corporation Abundance of reports and changing requirements Manual time-consuming processes High Risk of errors 1 2 3 SOURCE: The Hackett Group Organizations are relying on outdated tools and processes to meet mandated reporting requirements According to 43% of banking CFOs, there are current system limitations due to sub-optimal systems and processes
  35. 35. © 2014 IBM Corporation What We Deliver! Instead of navigating gaps in the production of recurring reports over and over again Employ a repeatable process Instead of manually piecing together Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files Streamline report assembly Instead of interpreting ―just read‖ data, get to understanding right away Make better decisions
  36. 36. © 2014 IBM Corporation Management reports External and regulatory reports Internal reports Close, consolidate and report Worldwide tagging  Time is spent on low-value work (data/text, copy/paste, editing, validation)  Limited time for specialists to make insightful decisions  Slow, manual, recurring process  Facts within reports can be out of date before the report even published  No compliance or controls during the process Recurring, multi-author reports create the same problems
  37. 37. © 2014 IBM Corporation Cognos Disclosure Management (CDM) solution features • Replace tools and manual processes with a proven reporting solution used by 300+ customers worldwide • Filing packages provide all the templates and XBRL connectivity that you need • Familiar MS Office interface for ease of use • Reduce the risk of errors with strong data integration • Built in workflow plus full audit trail provides visibility and transparency • Reports cascading for easier reporting of multiple subsidiaries • Rollover capabilities reduce reporting for future cycles and provide an easy transition between periods and mandate versions IBM Customers that use CDM to meet mandated reporting requirements save time, gain control and governance over the process and reduce the risk of errors.
