Cognos Express Planner
« on: 17 Sep 2009 07:09:55 am »
I heard, that later in this year one additional component will be shipped with CX: Planner. It is said to control planning workflows and seems to comply the former TM1 Workflow.

And I gained the information, that CX ships also the Informix Database, included in the base price.

But I did not hear anything from an ETL-component, neither Data Manager nor something from the IBM portfolio...

I've heard the same thing. But that is all the info I was able to get.

Yes. I think it's a lightweigth version that comes pre configured with the install (and can only be used for Express).

Haven't heard of anything either...

Note: You  might also want to move this thread to the Cognos Express section on this forum. That is what it is there for ;-)

If the default OLAP database store is TM1 then presumably the ETL tool would be TurboIntegrator?

I have the 32-bit Parner version installed and have attended the CX Partner training. There is an Informix database , used as the Content Store and TurboIntegrator is included as a means to getting data into the TM1(Xcelerator) cubes.

Basically CX has TM1 as the DB engine, though it can access other datasources through FWMgr. So with TM1 comes TurboIntegrator. Workflow is already available for TM1, so a planning application can be set up easily.

The official Planning module of CX, coming out presumably Q2 2010, will have someway the workflow capabilities of Contributor.
