I work at University and administer a medium sized Cognos 8.4.1 installation, among other things, and at this point we're facing a dilemma that it seems most Cognos customers are: lack of licenses.  I've been investigating the use of the Cognos Mashup Service and/or SDK to provide dashboards to our central portal.

If I were to provide such functionality, would each potential viewer of the Cognos content in the portal require a Consumer license?  We were hoping to provide some widget/dashboards to some members of the university community, but are unsure if we'll be able to handle the cost of thousands of consumer licenses.
