Recycling Legacy Metadata with Cognos 8 Business IntelligenceJürgen Hemelt, GAD eG, Fachreferent (GAD eG
GAD – a major data center and service provider for cooperative banks in Germany – runs an ODS based on legacy mainframe technology. The metadata of this ODS is a major asset for the clients of GAD. As a replacement for its legacy system GAD implemented Cognos 8 BI system. This system had to provide at least the same functionality as its predecessor. Consequently, GAD developed programs to transfer the metadata into a Cognos 8 Framework Manager model. The resulting system is large and complex with regard to its operation. Hence, GAD has built an SDK application providing full-text search on the metadata. This presentation shows how to create an FM model from legacy metadata with Cognos 8 FM SDK. It also highlights the SDK search application.
The audience will get an impression of the various options and choices of Cognos 8 BI SDKs to handle metadata and to extend the user interface for the Cognos Connection. Listeners will also get information about limitations of the SDK and the respective Framework Manager and how to implement workarounds.
