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 now processes Framework Manager report specifications retrieved from Cognos’ report storage (Content Store). Using the extracted information and other scanners, MANTA can create complete end-to-end data lineage (from database data sources through analytical models to reports in Cognos Analytics).
MANTA currently scans
- Reports and interactive reports (including queries with SQL)
- Framework Manager models
- Data modules, data sets, uploaded files
- Database connections
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 dynamic cubes, power cubes, filters in report queries, query macros, and more.
