Cognos Toolkit: Facilitate Audit, Automation, Administration, Upgrade and Migration of IBM Cognos BI and Analytics

Establish a healthy IBM Cognos environment and in parallel perform maintenance tasks to facilitate upgrade or move to Cloud.

Overview

Organizations are responsible for ensuring their Cognos environments are well maintained and cleaned regularly from clutter. In reality, almost every legacy environment runs into issues because of unmanageable Content Store or corrupted objects. Knowing the environment: objects, users, security, data is a key to keeping it healthy. Cognos Toolkit is designed to make this inventory easy with the power of automation: capture information about Cognos Environment in an automated fashion, get the answers to plan an upgrade or migration effort or perform regular maintenance.
