IBM Cognos Metric Studio is used to create a scorecard application and monitor the metrics within the applications. A metric is a key performance indicator (KPI) related to time. A scorecard shows graphically how a metric is performing. This is typically done by using red, orange and green status notations. IBM Cognos Metric Studio is part of the Cognos Business Intelligence modules.

The application delivers out of the box support -next to its integration in the Cognos Business Intelligence platform- for concepts like ownership, themes, objectives, strategy map, project-& initiative follow up, filing of attachments etc.
