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 Framework Manager models and report specifications retrieved from Cognos’ report storage (Content Store) and manually provided Dynamic Cube Designer projects. Using the extracted metadata and integrations with other scanners, MANTA can create complete end-to-end data lineage (from database data sources through analytical models or dynamic cubes to report items 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
A version of the Cognos scanner is now available for testing.
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, query macros, and more.
