Cognos Controller Licensing - reading from SQL Server

I have a customer that is using Cognos Controller that uses a Microsoft SQL Server as the backend database. We're trying to figure out if a license is needed to read data from the Cognos data straight from SQL Server (without using any Cognos license). Anybody that has an answer to this question?




You can use the datamart option from Controller.
That will create a star schema in the Controller database, ready to report on.

As for Controller tables themselves, they are not encrypted, so you can extract whatever you want from it.

I don´t see why you should have anything to do with licensing. You own the data that Controller generates.
