Migration from Cognos 7.5 to Cognos 10
« on: 10 Feb 2016 06:55:39 am »
Hi Team,

Can you please let me know the process/steps that we need to follow to migrate reports from Cognos 7.5 to Cognos 10 along with rewriting of macros etc.? Also is it a straight forward method like 8.4 to 10.2?

Thank you.

Hi,

Moving from Cognos 7 to any recent Cognos version is an involved process. The architecture is completely different between Cognos 7 and ReportNet/Cognos 8/Cognos 10/Cognos Analytics. The latter four have the same fundamental architecture so moving to a different version between these four is simply a matter of upgrading, but moving Cognos 7 to any of them is not simple.

A good place to start when planning an upgrade is the IBM Cognos Upgrade Central site:

You might also want to take a look at the following threads:

Cheers!

Meep!
