Recording of Session One: Achieve Quality BI with IBM Cognos Testing

Ask yourself, “Is your Cognos implementation producing accurate and consistent data?” The only way to ensure the answer is “yes” is to have automated testing for your BI implementation. Automated testing will alert users of any potential issues as soon as they are detected. Join this session to discover all the benefits of having an automated testing platform integrated with your Cognos implementation.

Client Case Studies

Achieving the most accurate and reliable BI implementations with Motio

"When our Dev content store crashed, we had just implemented MotioCI four months prior. If we had not had MotioCI, we would have been in a really, really bad situation. Right there, it paid for itself. We would have lost months worth of development effort that was only in the Dev environment...

"We could not manage our environment without MotioCI. The release team is no longer the bottleneck. Processes are going smoothly."

—Richard Wylde, Catlin

"Finding a solution which minimized risk and guaranteed that our existing security policies remained intact was very important to us. We were very impressed with the smoothness of the transition."

—Lisa Kelley, HealthPort

"MotioCI is an active insurance policy. It is doing exactly what we wanted it to do."

—Molly Doyle, University of Colorado

"The automated testing provided by MotioCI proved invaluable. With so many reports being created and modified, and the framework model and data sources evolving, it was a huge advantage to have MotioCI proactively pointing out inconsistencies and errors."

—Tim McGuire, Ameripath...

"Our users were wowed by the functionality of MotioADF. The self-service nature of this application has reduced our number of support requests. Even a user with little or no training is able to figure the interface out and immediately become productive."

—Tim McGuire, Ameripath...

"We had one report author delete a series of reports and could not recover them without restoring the entire Cognos Content Store, thus losing all of the work completed since the last backup. We know how valuable version control is and we knew we had to have it."

—Dustin Jordan,...

"By having MotioCI we directly save 500 hours per year on hiring external specialists, so we actually reduce our out-of-pocket costs."

—Rob Bakker, Eneco

"The relationship with Motio is an integral part of our rapidly expanding BICC, enabling holistic change control and proactive issues resolution on our critical reporting portfolio. It has and will continue to increase end user satisfaction and reduce total cost of ownership of our...

"With the complexity of our user interface, it would have taken us twice as long as it did if we had not started with Motio's software. They worked alongside of us to provide the best user interface for the product and the end results are quite impressive."

—Sheila Higgins, Avaya...

 

"By using MotioCI, we reduced the time to upgrade to Cognos Analytics from 14 months to 3 months!"

— BI Manager, Pharmaceutical Industry

 

 

"MotioCI allows me to test all reports against the outputs of an upgraded environment and know if there are any data differences. This allows us to dramatically shorten the upgrade testing cycle from one to two months to one to two weeks."

—Enterprise Reporting and Analytics...

"Without MotioCI we would be in a situation where we would have to fight fires every day just to make sure things are done according to our requirements."

—Sean Nguyen, Sr. Information Architect, Providence St. Joseph Health

"I know of one instance several weeks ago where a set of reports went missing off the development environment and a ticket was submitted for the BACC support team. We were able to quickly show them how you can just restore the missing reports using MotioCI and their panic was over. It's...

"After we deploy to production, if something was missed in testing, or we have an issue, we can very easily roll back to a previous version using the MotioCI tool."
