Scanners & integrations
IBM Cognos Business Intelligence is a web-based integrated business intelligence suite by IBM. It provides a toolset for reporting, analytics, scorecarding, and monitoring events and metrics.
MANTA’s scanner processes report specifications and Framework Manager retrieved from Cognos reports storage (Content store). Using the extracted information and thanks to other scanners, MANTA can create complete end-to-end data lineage (from the database data sources, across analytical models, to reports in Cognos Analytics).
WORK IN PROGRESS
An experimental version of the IBM Cognos scanner is now available.
MANTA currently supports a significant portion of Cognos data objects; the rest will be included in future releases. You can look forward to data modules, dashboards and stories, CSV files as data sources, dynamic cubes, and power cubes.
MANTA currently scans:
- Reports (including queries)
- Interactive reports
- Framework Manager models
- Database connection information
