Remove the Pain from Upgrading Cognos Analytics

Cognos Analytics gets ever better with each release, but without MotioCI, upgrades can consume weeks of preparation and testing. We simplify your Cognos upgrade so you can enjoy the benefits without the anxiety and loss of time.

Using our Inventory, Version Control, Automated Testing and Mass Update capabilities, your team can:

  • Z Identify and safely delete the cruft
  • ZAutomate and streamline testing and validation
  • ZAccelerate the repairs
  • ZAvoid a production freeze

Safely Eradicate the Cruft from Your Cognos Environment

Your Cognos environment naturally becomes polluted with unwanted or redundant assets over time as users create content. This cruft leads to problems like:

  • ZExtended Upgrade cycles
  • ZTime lost on irrelevant assets
  • ZConfused and Frustrated Users
  • ZBad Business Decisions
  • ZSlower start up times
Your team can quickly and easily — identify and safely delete the broken, unnecessary, or duplicate items — examine for design anomalies and best practices — investigate potential performance issues.

Relieve the Anxiety of Cognos Testing

Testing and Validation are constant processes in any analytics implementation; when done manually these processes consume large amounts of time and rarely lead to quality results.  By automating both, we eliminate expensive, interruptive, and stressful manual error prone cycles from your team, enabling them to focus on producing new analytics to run and grow the business.

Automated testing reduces:

  • ZErrors
  • ZCost
  • ZCycle and Delivery Times
  • ZBad Business Decisions
Automated testing makes your team more proactiveaccurate, and confident in your delivery.
