Connecting your IBM® Informix® databases to IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence software gives you a way to unleash the power of your data with expanded query, reporting, and analysis capabilities. If you're ready to take that step, this two-part tutorial series gives you the information you need to install, configure, and deploy the necessary components to achieve the best results. Part 1 gets you started with using IBM Cognos Express V9 together with IBM Informix V11.5 as a content store and data source.

The tutorials include recommended practices for each step along the way, based on lessons learned from real-world deployments on the Microsoft® Windows® operating system.
