So this is wordpress.

By nature I tend to be very reserved and concise, so this is an entirely new experience to me.

The object of this blog is a venue for me to post about various tricks I discover while working with Cognos. To those of you who don’t know what Cognos is, but have heard of the term Business Intelligence, I strongly recommend you look it up. For those of you who haven’t even heard of the term Business Intelligence, you will probably be very bored by this.

Comments are welcome, and questions about the techniques I post here will normally be answered. If you have questions about Cognos that are not related to any post here, please feel free to post your question on the Cognoise Community forum, or on the IBM Developerworks forum.

The actual content of the posts will be mainly issues with Report Studio, dimensional reporting, and messing around with the Cognos internals. Occasionally I may mention Framework Manager, Transformer, and Metric Studio.
