Title: Managing Dev, Test and Prod Environments
Post by: cadams on 16 Nov 2021 06:26:06 pm
Not sure what thread to add this too.

Hi there Cognoisers,

I'm really interested to hear how you're managing you multi environment Cognos setups.

Cognos has progressed rapidly over the years, becoming much more self service orientated, IMO making it more and more difficult to have the traditional dev, test and prod environments, Back in the day when I worked for the big banks in London, we had a very rigorous development and prod promotion regime. However, these days, in order for Cognos to play catchup with the competitors, IBM have introduced more and more features enabling users to upload their own data, create datasets and pretty much do their own modeling.

I'm keen to understand how you're managing keeping you separate environments in sync and controlling what's published in prod 

Cheers....
