"The automated validation and regression testing provided by MotioCI proved invaluable. With so many reports being modified, new reports being created, and the framework model and data sources evolving, it was a huge advantage to have MotioCI continually testing our BI content and proactively pointing out inconsistencies, errors and performance issues."
- Tim McGuire, VP of Enterprise Development, Ameripath, Inc
"We added MotioCI to the picture and it seamlessly attached itself to IBM Cognos. MotioCI is an active insurance policy. It is doing exactly what we wanted it to do. This product is the mirror image of the professional work Motio does in testing and implementing their products."
- Randy MacLeod, Director of Financial Systems, University of Colorado
"The relationship with Motio is an integral part of our rapidly expanding Business Intelligence Competency Center, enabling holistic change control and proactive issue resolution on our critical reporting portfolio. It has and will continue to increase end-user satisfaction and reduce total cost of ownership of our enterprise-wide Cognos BI environment."
- Simon Gratton, Director of Business Transformation at TELUS.
Automated Testing for Cognos
Maintaining accuracy and consistency of BI content is critical to the performance and reliability of Cognos implementations. An automated testing system, like MotioCI™, ensures superior performing Cognos environments by detecting issues early in the development cycle which provide the following benefits:
- Diagnose of problems faster
- Increase BI team momentum by eliminating manual testing
- Reduce development costs
MotioCI is in a class of its own when it comes to testing capabilities for BI content. MotioCI has the most extensive features available for Cognos testing.
Regression Testing for Executable and Non-executable Content
Regression testing refers to automated tests performed on Cognos to identify problems early in the BI development cycle. MotioCI's regression tests can be configured for all executable Cognos content, such as:
- active reports
MotioCI extends its regression testing capabilities to non-executable Cognos content, such as:
- data sources
MotioCI's comprehensive content testing provides the most reliable approach to validating Cognos content in the development cycle.

Stress Testing for Cognos
|In addition to regression testing, MotioCI provides stress testing for Cognos. Stress testing is imperative to safeguard your Cognos BI implementation against varying usage scenarios that may affect performance. You can simulate stress tests on Cognos instances to determine how much load an environment can handle and identify critical breaking points brought on by the increased load. Examples of stress test scenarios include:|
|Stress testing is a trustworthy approach to determining how your Cognos implementation behaves under existing performance requirements or SLAs (service level agreements) as well as predicting its stability under heavy usage conditions that may occur.|
Continuous Verification of Cognos Content
|The MotioCI continuous integration capabilities allow customers to automatically apply all configured tests at regular intervals (e.g. "run all tests every 2 hours"). The concept of Continuous Integration enables MotioCI to reduce the time and costs associated with BI development by proactively monitoring IBM Cognos environments and notifying project stakeholders when a problem surfaces rather than relying on the end users to discover it.|
