An Architectural Approach to Cognos TM1 Design

Overtime, I’ve written about keeping your TM1 model design “architecturally pure”. What this means is that you should strive to keep a models “areas of functionality” distinct within your design. Common Components I believe that all TM1 applications, for example, are made of only 4 distinct “areas of functionality”. They are absorption (of key information […]

Configuring Cognos TM1 Web with Cognos Security

Recently I completed upgrading a client’s IBM Cognos environment – both TM1 and BI. It was a “jump” from Cognos 8 to version 10.2, and TM1 9.5 to version 10.2.2. In this environment, we had multiple virtual servers (Cognos lives on one, TM1 on one and the third is the gateway/webserver). Once the software was […]

Framework Manager – Creating a Parameter Map

A session parameter is a variable that IBM Cognos Framework Manager associates with a particular session. Examples include (current user name, current active language, current date and time, and others). Parameter maps are a method for substituting different values with different keys. A parameter map can be thought of as simple data “look-up table”. Each […]

Creating Business Logic – in Cognos Framework Manager

One of the goals of the Cognos Framework Manager modeler is to build a model that makes report authoring easier. To accomplish that, you “build in” business logic” (a loosely defined term here) into your meta model. This business logic can be simple (like simply renaming or hiding a database table column) or quite complex […]

Cognos Framework Manager, Transformer & Metric Designer

During a recent project of mine, I jumped “head first” into IBM Cognos Framework Manager. Yes, it is an awesome tool, but where exactly does it “fit” into the Cognos environment? Are there similar or alternate tools that can be used? I just had to have a quick look! The Cognos Components       […]

IBM Cognos Framework Manager – Proven Practice

A proven practice for Framework Manager Meta Modeling is to divide your model into a series of layers, each layer having a specific purpose. (Originally IBM recommended the use of two layers (data and modeling), but later added a presentation layer, and (optionally) a separate dimensional layer). The layers should be: The top layer – […]

Cognos TM1 Performance Review – on a budget!

Often I am asked to conduct a “performance review” of implemented Cognos TM1 applications “rather quickly” when realistically; a detailed architectural review must be extensive and takes some time. Generally, if there is a limited amount of time, you can use the following suggestions as perhaps some appropriate areas to focus on (until such time […]

A Splunk Decision Support System

The importance of making credible decisions can be the difference between profit or loss, or even survival or extinction. Decision Support Systems (or DSSs) serve the key decision makers of an organization– helping  them to effectively assess  predictors (which can be rapidly changing and not easily specified in advance) and make the best decisions, reducing […]

Cognos TM1 TurboIntegrator – Run-time or Read-time?

In this blog I wanted to take some time to describe certain “behaviors” of Cognos TM1 TurboIntegrator processes. Access to Processes As of version 10.2 (or as of this writing), TM1 Server lists all processes (in alphabetical order) under the consolidation “Processes”. The visibility of processes can be controlled by implementing TM1 security. TM1 groups […]

Predicting Project Success with IBM SPSS

A technology company has literally participated in thousands of projects over the years. At some point the group decided it wants to determine what factors or characteristics may influence the (hopefully successful) competition of current and future implementation projects. Thankfully, they have maintained records in on every project that they were involved in and that […]
