"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."

MotioCI - Regression Testing for Cognos
MotioCI provides powerful regression testing capabilities for Cognos BI content. BI team members can build test cases which ensure that Cognos report specifications (or other artifacts) adhere to project or corporate standards with respect to look and feel, report structure, local calculations, naming conventions, report parameters and more.
Testcases can also be developed which ensure that when executed, reports produce the expected results and complete within the expected period of time.
Test projects are configured in MotioCI to automatically execute at designated intervals (e.g. "every 2 hours"). When any portion of a test project begins to fail, MotioCI will proactively notify the BI team that a problem has been detected. In this respect, it acts as a "smoke detector" for the BI environment.
MotioCI represents a BI best practice with regard to automatic testing of Cognos reports, models and other content.
MotioCI also does a lot more than regression testing of Cognos content.
