5
The migration challenge
6
7
Good news: with BI, complexity is hidden
Cryptic source systems
Massive data warehouses (tables, etc.)
Complex transformations and logic
Elaborate data models
Complex reports and dashboards
7
Store
Prepare Model Visualize Share
Connect Combine
8
Bad news: it’s still there (and worse)!
Complex Cognos content
Businesses merge and realign
Platform and data source
migrations

Result: lift-n-shift never works

Business process reengineering (BPR) steps with Migration Assistant
“Compression factors” of 10-20x (or more) are common
1. Eliminate
Ignore unused or broken items
Identify and remove duplicates
2. Plan and prioritize
Identify high-priority or impacted items
3. Simplify, streamline and consolidate
Identify similar formats, calcs and filters
Generalize (e.g., one prompted report for ten independent reports)
4. Automate
Avoid manual work and errors
5. Delegate
 Report and dashboard recipes reduce the need for “unicorns”
13
Unraveling the data
• Go into every single report individually to
manually view lineage, filters and
parameters
• Many reports are sitting in users’ My
Content folders
• No consolidated view of which data
sources and models are still needed and
used
• Cognos audit data is limited—can’t tell
which reports are never run
13
The Migration Assistant
Inspired by universal client challenges
14
15
Accelerate migrations and consolidations
• Programmatically decodes
and inventories multi-layered
Cognos reports and
packages into a database
• Identifies details including
data source(s), lineage,
relationships and usage
15
How it works
• Extracts Cognos metadata into smaller pieces
• Report  page, list, list column, query, query item, filter
• Data model  namespace, query subject, query item, relationships
• Data lineage between report, model and database
• Extracts report execution history
• Stores both in a SQL Server database
• Analyzes Cognos content, using ad hoc queries or included
pre-built reports
16
Three common scenarios
17
1. Data source changes
• Identifies which reports and models rely on the legacy data
source
• Combines inventory and usage statistics
• Lists tables and columns used
• Search specific keywords in queries and filters
• E.g., Compatibility checking
• Helps identify and plan out the migration process
18
19
Accurately scope,
budget, resource and
manage data source
migrations
19
2. Migrating analytic platforms
• Identifies source data
• Inventories report design elements
• Shows how to rebuild data models
• Shows how to rebuild reports
• Identifies most used reports
• Shows rarely used and unused reports
20
21
Significantly
accelerates migration
timeline while
increasing accuracy
and overall success
21
3. Optimizing your Cognos footprint
• Identify rarely used and un-used reports
• Identify under-used user licenses
• Shrink packages safely by removing unreferenced areas
22
23
Reduces cost of
ownership

Editor's Notes

  1. The first question we usually get is “Can I get a copy of the presentation?” Absolutely! It’s available on Senturus.com. Select the Resources tab and then Resources Library. Or you can click the link that was just posted in the GoToWebinar Control panel. Be sure to bookmark the resource library. It has tons of valuable content addressing a wide variety of business analytics topics.
  2. Joining us today is…Todd Schuman and Song Gao Todd has over 19 years of business analytics experience across multiple industries. He also regularly connects with the IBM product development team and has been in the forefront of the Cognos Analytics upgrade and installation process since it debuted. He lives with his wife and two daughters outside of Washington DC, in Virginia. Song is one of our developers and is responsible for not only developing the Migration Assistant at Senturus, but he’s also developed the Senturus Analytics Connector, a ODBC-based connector that allows Cognos data to be used in Tableau and Power BI for data visualization. And the Senturus Reporting Insights utility that exposes Cognos report metadata in a series of additional reports to speed BI system migrations. Song will be answering your questions in the chat.
  3. Today’s agenda. After a brief introduction of the speakers, we’ll get right into the topic. Stay on after the presentation when we will We’ll then share useful links, provide a quick overview of Senturus and let you know of upcoming events. We’ll wrap with a live Q&A.
  4. When properly done, this shields the end-user from the complexity and inaccuracy of accessing raw data directly. However, ….
  5. 10s - 100s of packages, many data sources, 1000s of reports Multi-layered, duplicate, and overlapping reports & packages Models that have grown over years and no one really understands them today Years of use the environment is complex and messy Have duplicate, unused and overlapping reports And reports build upon multiple data sources and ????? More on the messing relationships???? Developer and admin turnover Set the scene for needing to migrate data and platforms. For cleaning up Cognos: mergers & acquisitions,
  6. Is highlighted one true? If it stays—break into two slides Sitting into my folders—speak about not having access Paints the painful picture of having to unravel all that… time loss, inaccuracies, etc (true?)  Cognos audit is designed to answer this question, but it’s down to report level, not to child objects within report, or model/package level.
  7. Say this: Eliminates the hundreds of manual clicks to discover data fields, filters, calculations, Set the scene for needing to migrate data and platforms. For cleaning up Cognos: mergers & acquisitions, whatever
  8. Todd gives example Useful for functions that are incompatible between databases Sentence painting the scene for moving data platform to the cloud WHY OUR USAGE STATS ARE BETTER As you speak to the bullets, provide the benefit BULLET TWO BENEFIT: Combines inventory & usage statistics to create a prioritized, efficient migration plan BULLET THREE BENEFIT: Minimizes project scope by client large financial institution example – into Todd:
  9. Sentence painting the scene for migrating to new tool. WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THAT WITHOUT THE MIGRATOR? BELOW ARE THE BENEFITS FOR EACH BULLET IN THE SLIDE Identifies source data. . No more manually detangling of report and model details Inventories report design elements  Enables rapid layout reproduction Identifies most used reports . Prioritize those with most immediate business impact Shows duplicate and rarely used reports . Limit migration scope and reduce costs Valuable for Cognos migrations to any BI platform Methodology (per JP): Which reports are unnecessary or redundant (eliminate) Compression ratio of 10:1 (one customer 5k into 500) - ?
  10. Cuts BI platform migration time while increasing accuracy
  11. Paint scene for why/when you need to clean up your Cognos scene BENEFITS Provides deeper insights into Cognos audit data Facilitates an environment that is clean, current & compact
  12. Here Mike touches BRIEFLY on how the product works/ what it presents the user. This is a QUICK slide set the scene slide that is the jumping point to the demo, where each of these reports, how they work and what they are for will be explained in detail. ALSO MENTION WE CAN BUILD CUSTOM REPORTS IF you need it, below is text from the website: The Migration Assistant generates 5 interlinked and reports that let you to view, drill down into and analyze report and package information. Report catalog Combines reports and usage information and can be grouped by package or use. Assists in prioritizing the migration or rationalization project. Insights by package Creates a list of all reports in a package, the databases they reference and the unique tables in those databases. It also includes all the report specs for the reports in the package. Report details Show details of individual reports. Useful for report recreation or when needing to drill down to source data items for a given report. Drills down to the Lineage and Relationship reports. Lineage Displays the path the data follows through the various model layers. Relationship Shows the relationships defined between tables including join style and columns. This information is especially useful when rebuilding data models in a new tool or data warehouse.
  13. We find that clients w 20 or more models and/or 250+ reports can benefit significantly from using the MA Turns months of work into days which can result in 30% or more savings?
