Hello - Has anyone here worked with both Cognos BI 10 and InfoSphere? I'm curious how you found the integration and import/export functionality.
For example, I understand that InfoSphere Data Architect can output Framework Manager project files. How good are they? How complete are they? Do you need to edit them extensively in FM? If so, what happens when you re-export from Data Architect - do the edits/changes get merged or over-written?
Does Data Architect produce Transformer model files? How good are they? What else can be produced?
When importing Cognos Reports to Business Glossary, how good are the results? Do calculations get tagged with the source data elements? Does formatting and prompting get imported? What about more advanced report elements, such as page sets, bursting elements, query SQL and query joins in the report, etc.?
Thanks very much. I'm hoping to get my hands on InfoSphere soon to be able to test all of this myself, but am hopeful that someone has covered some of the basics. Maybe we should have a thread about using these two environments together.
