Strategic Cognos Upgrade Approach
PerformanceG2 utilizes a highly structure approach to our Cognos migration services.
Is your organization still running on Cognos 8? As of September 30, 2013 IBM Cognos BI version 8 is no longer supported. Upgrade today to IBM Cognos 10 – a powerful and scalable BI and performance management tool with faster performance – before it’s too late. Connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started on your Cognos migration service.
Our Cognos upgrade methodology takes the project through four primary phases: assess, plan, install and upgrade, and support.
Phase 1: Assess
When upgrading from prior Cognos platforms to Cognos 10, a Cognos Environment Assessment is necessary to determine the business and infrastructure impact of moving between platforms
Phase 2: Plan
The information obtained during the assess phase provides the road map for the project and helps to determine the exact scope and time required to upgrade between environments.
Phase 3: Install and Upgrade
The upgrade phase is dependent on Cognos 10 being installed and configured with LifeCycle Manager available for the content upgrade.
Phase 4: Support
The final phase of the project is the support phase – PerformanceG2 works with the client to ensure that the proper training and post-implementation support takes place.
