  • 19. IBM Cognos Mobile Installation Details • Server Installation - IBM Cognos Mobile is installed separately into IBM Cognos BI. Mobile requires the last release of BI - Application Tier and Gateway Tier components. Gateway tier includes mobile clients such as BlackBerry - Each instance of Presentation Service (PS) currently needs to be co-located with an instance of the Mobile Service (MOB) - Participates in standard load-balancing19
  • 20. IBM Cognos Mobile Installation Details • Client Installation - iPad Application must be installed from Apple’s App Store - BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian clients can be installed by: • Pushing the application via BlackBerry Enterprise Server or other MDM • Pulling the application by clicking on an install link in the device‟s browser • Sideloading the application to a tethered device through a desktop manager20
  • 21. IBM Cognos Mobile Security Model • Leverages Cognos security: namespaces, users (e.g. AD, LDAP) • Supports web/app server security: TLS/SSL, NTLM, Kerberos, SiteMinder, etc. • Communication is standard HTTP and works with standard network security: VPNs, TLS/SSL, secure WiFi, etc. • Benefits from device security: PIN password, application sandboxing, OS storage encryption, etc. • IBM Cognos Mobile provides an additional “lease key” mechanism to allow time-limited access to data while offline21
  • 22. IBM Cognos Mobile Security Strategies • Consider enforcing security policy on mobile devices (e.g. PIN password) via MDM software or policy files • How will your mobile devices get access to the BI server? (Intranet WiFi only, VPN over 3G, BI server in DMZ, etc.) • Ensure that communication “over the wire” meets security requirements (e.g. VPN, TLS/SSL, secure WiFi, client certs, etc.) • Determine whether additional device management is needed, e.g. remote wipe, and if so then how to get it, e.g. BES, Apple MDM, etc. • Tune parameters on the server: local storage encryption; length of time to cache credentials (BB only); length of time to allow offline access.access to data while offline22
  • 23. IBM Cognos Mobile Authoring • Does this mean we need to develop content specifically for Mobile consumers? - MAYBE: • IBM Cognos supports “author once, consumer anywhere”, which means all existing reports, queries, analyses, and workspaces are valid objects to be consumed by Mobile users • However, we have to consider our audience and device limitations when rolling out a broad Mobile strategy - SO: Plan and allocate resources intelligently23
  • 24. IBM Cognos Mobile Authoring - Active Reports • Active Reports are an effective way to deliver content to Mobile users - Active Reports have built-in interactive features allowing interactivity without making additional “trips” from device to server, providing instantaneous response - The Active Reports can reside on the device for disconnected access - New Active Report controls in Report Studio are designed specifically for iPad interface (Iterator controls support “swipe” gestures)24
  • 25. IBM Cognos Mobile Access Points • Consumers can access the Mobile IBM Cognos portal via web browser: - http://<Cognos Server>/c10.1.1/m/ • iPad Consumers can also download the native app and connect to the BI Server • Report owners can schedule delivery to mobile users25
