Pinned topic Cognos 10.1 and SharePoint 2010 integration

‏2013-01-28T01:01:48Z |
Hi All,

We have a requirement where we need to do the Cognos 10.1 integration with in the SharePoint 2010 portal...I wanted to know what all the options available to do so
After doing some search, seemed to me like IBM also provides webparts which we can use in the SharePoint...something like Cognos portlet? is it free available with the 10.1 or need to buy separately..

I would appreciate for you thoughts on this...any web reference in this regard also will be very useful.

    Hi Daniel...thanks for sharing the url. I was wondering if we need to configure the Cognos website to run using IIS before integrating with SharePoint? please let me know if it necessary that Cognos site should be configured to run using IIS or it is not required and existing cgi-bin will also work....please let me know your thoughts on this.

    Did you get a chance to look at the contents of the link sent earlier. I only ask as on the first page there is a checklist of things that need to be done. If you are configuring MS IIS, I think it would be safe to assume that it needs to be running to host sharepoint.
    For 2010: *Configure Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS*)
    Deploy IBM Cognos Web Parts
    Configure IBM Cognos Web Parts
    Restart IIS

    Add Cognos Web Parts to a SharePoint page
    Customize the content of Cognos Web Parts
