Last week, just before the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, Cindy Saracco from our team, along with Tad Worley, one of our Infosphere Warehouse experts, published a new paper on developerWorks titled: "Create business reports for XML data with Cognos 8 BI and DB2 pureXML: Two techniques to help you get started." We have been getting more and more questions about using Cognos with DB2 pureXML and thought it would be good to get some information out there on the subject. Because XML messages frequently contain important business data, companies are increasingly interested in querying and reporting on this data. The paper takes you through two different methods, step by step, showing examples along the way. Cindy is one of the best technical writers that I know of (inside and outside IBM), so if this topic is of interest, be sure to check out the article.
And in January, we will have a related article coming out titled "Reporting on pureXML data with QMF/DataQuant" so look for that as well.
