Question & Answer
What functionality and features are available with the Version 7.5 Maximo Cognos Reporting Integration?
In Maximo® Base Services 7.5 Release (V75), an IBM Cognos ® Reporting Integration is enabled. This integration extends the current suite of reporting tools that are available to you. The Maximo Cognos Integration uses the Cognos Reporting Products of Developers Studio, Query Studio, Cognos Connection and Framework Manager Products.
You can enable the Maximo Cognos Integration in two different ways - either through your existing license of Cognos Reporting, or through your utilization of Tivoli Common Reporting. If you utilize your own license of Cognos, without TCR, it is referred to as a Direct Integration. If you use Cognos thru TCR, it is referred to as an Indirect, or TCR integration.
There are 3 different supported versions of the Maximo 75--Cognos Integration beginning with the Version 188.8.131.52 release including:
1. Cognos 8.4.1
2. Cognos 10.1.1.
For the Indirect TCR Integration,
3. Cognos 8.4.1 is available with TCR 2.1.1.
