The Cognos metadata model allows you to simplify end user experience and to provide for cross-InfoProvider reporting — with or without the availability of a multi-provider. This is also how you can use a single environment to work with both SAP Business Warehouse and non-SAP data.

Now you are ready to expose the content of the model for end users. To expose the model, you need to create one or more packages. Different packages can be created to specifically meet the needs of different user communities – all based off the one model for easy central administration and maintenance. Watch this demo to learn how to package and publish the model.
