Video: Dashboards erstellen mit IBM Cognos Analytics – Cognos 11

IBM Cognos Analytics (Version Cognos 11) bringt ein komplett neues Frontend für den Benutzer mit. Die Berichtserstellung und Datenanalyse erfolgt über eine integrierte Oberfläche im Webbrowser. In diesem Online-Video zeigen wir die Schritte um ein kleines Dashboard auf Basis einer Excel-Datei zu erstellen. Die Daten werden hierbei vom Anwender auf den Server geladen und in […]

Cognos Analytics ist neue moderne Frontend für die schnelle Berichtserstellung

Der Zugriff auf die Daten erfolgt wie bisher über die Cognos Packages (z.B. aus dem Framework Manager) oder direkt auf eigene Datenquellen wie Excel Dateien.
Der Anwender benötigt also nicht in jedem Fall die Unterstützung der IT Abteilung um eigene Daten auszuwerten.

Wie bei der Fachmesse IBM Insight 2015 in Las Vegas klar wurde fokussiert sich IBM im Bereich Datenanalyse immer weiter auf Big Data und Analytics, Künstliche Intelligenz, Deep Learning und Cloud Computing.
Realtime Reporting und realtime Analyse soll nun mit Cognos Analytics möglich sein. Weiterlesen

Welche Cognos Version ist installiert?

Bei den ganzen FixPacks, Updates und schnellen Versionszyklen kommt man schon mal durcheinander welche Version von IBM Cognos BI gerade installiert ist.

Es gibt zwei Quellen um an diese Inforamation zu kommen:

  1. in dem Installationsverzeichnis von Cognos befindet sich eine Datei mit dem Namen cmplst.txt
  2. in Cognos Configuration erhält man mit der Tastenkombination CTRL-H ein Fenster mit einem Tab „Installierte Komponenten“

Datum aus PowerPlay Cube im Report Studio Bericht anzeigen lassen

Wer das Erstellungsdatum eines Würfels aus dem PowerPlay Transformer in Report Studio Berichten anzeigen lassen möchte benötigt eine Layout-Berechnung.

Die Funktion die einem direkt ins Auge springt ist die „CubeCreatedOn“ Funktion. Diese zeigt bei PowerCubes aber nur eine leere Zeichenkette.

Die richtige Funktion ist die „CubeUpdatedOn“. Die Funktion erwartet einen Parameter in der eine Dimension übergeben werden muss.

In dem Beispiel wurde hier die Zeitdimension „Jahre“ gewählt:

IBM Cognos BI 10.2 erschienen (Download / FixList / Neue Features)

Nun steht die neue Version 10.2 von IBM Cognos BI zum Download bereit. Es gibt eine lange Liste von behobenen Fehlern und ein paar neue Funktionen. Schnell auffallen wird die Umbenennung einiger Komponenten. Wie war das doch gleich mit den Namen „Cognos Insight“, „Cognos Business Insight“, „Cognos Business Insight Advanced“… so viel Insight, dass man gar nicht wusste welche Komponente nun gemeint ist.

So sieht es nun in der Version 10.2 aus:
– „Business Insight“ nennt sich nun „Cognos Workspace“
– „Cognos Insight“ ist weiterhin die Cognos Clientvariante auf  TM1 Basis

Erwähnenswert ist das „Skin Management Utility“. Hier kann nun das Corporate Design visuell entworfen und in die Cognos Oberfläche eingebunden werden. Damit wird das lästige Stöbern in den verschiedenen XML-Konfigurationsdateien minmiert.

Was es alles an neuen Funktionen gibt kann hier nachgelesen werden: New Features in Cognos 10.2.0

Diagramme Formatieren in IBM Cognos 10 Report Studio

Die Darstellung der Unternehmensdaten in Cognos Reports mit Diagrammen muss sich immer an den Möglichkeiten von Excel  messen. Seit Cognos 8 stehen ja schon viele Diagrammtypen zur Verfügung und in Cognos 10 sind noch mal etliche dazu gekommen. Die Auswahl ist wirklich umfassend, egal ob klassische Balken-, Linien-, Kreisdiagramme oder moderne Tachometer gefragt sind. Jedes Diagramm besitzt eine Reihe Eigenschaften um die Darstellung zuverändern und z.B. mit modernen Farbverläufen und 3D-Schatten zu versehen.

Aber oft sind es die Kleinigkeiten die das Arbeiten mit den Diagrammen verzweifeln lässt. Hier ein Beispiel dazu:

 

Bei komplexeren Anforderungen hilft in den meisten Fällen das Kombinationsdiagramm. Dort ist es möglich mehrere Diagramme in einer Darstellung abzubilden. Aber auch dieses recht einfache Diagramm hat so seine Tücken:

  • die Werte sollen nur bei den letzten beiden Datenpunkten angezeigt werden
  • die Achsbeschriftungen (Umsatz und Anteil %) sollen nicht neben den Achsen stehen, sondern drüber
  • die Stapel-Balken sollen schmal sein

Die Eigenschaften sind also Schritt für Schritt zu durchforsten. Schwierig ist es hierbei immer das richtige Objekt zu finden – wo stellt man doch gleich die größe der Punkte in der Linie ein? Das gesamte Kombinationsdiagramm hat eine lange Eigenschaftenliste, aber natürlich auch die Unterdiagramme, die Achsen (ach ja, die Primärachse muss einzeln aktiviert werden und der Min – Max Bereich von 100% eingestellt werden), die Beschriftungen… und dann gefunden, die Punkte der Linie sind in der Palette auf zwei Registerkarten definiert.

Was gegenüber bei dieser Anforderung nicht dem Excel-Vergleich stand gehalten hat ist die Formatierung der Werte bei dem Liniendiagramm. Die Farbe der Zahlen sollte eigentlich ebenfalls rot sein und die Werte sollten mehr Abstand zur Linie haben (der erste nach untern, der zweite nach oben). Vielleicht bei der nächsten Vèrsion? Oder doch nur eine Eigenschaft übersehen? …

Wenn man sich erst mal reingefuchst hat, dann machen aber auch die Diagramme im Cognos Report Studio richtig Spaß!

IBM Cognos: Reports im Dateisystem speichern

Für eine produktive Weiterverarbeitung von Cognos Auswertungen kann es sinnvoll sein, vorgefertigte Reports nicht im Cognos Content Store abzulegen sondern als Datei z.B. als PDF oder im Excel-Format im Filesystem zu speichern. Gerade bei einer Zielgruppenverteilung ist dieses interessant wenn die Zielgruppen selber dann auch noch im Dateinamen zu erkennen sind.
In diesem Beispiel konfigurieren wir ein IBM Cognos 10 System so, dass ein Burst-Report (Zielgruppenverteilung) in einem öffentlichen Netzlaufwerk zugänglich gemacht wird.

Schritt 1: Windows Explorer
Legen Sie einen neuen Ordner im Netzwerk an auf dem die User vollen Zugriff haben.
In unserem Test-Beispiel C:\ReportOutput (besser aber: \\servername\ReportOutput)

Schritt 2: Cognos Configuration
Menü Aktionen –> Globale Konfiguration bearbeiten…

Dann auf der Registerkarte „Allgemein“ im Eintrag „Root-Pfad des Dateisystems des Archivverzeichnisses“ das Ausgabeverzeichnis eintragen. Hierbei den Prefix file:// hinzufügen.
In unserem Beispiel also file://C:\ReportOutput
Testen Sie den Eintrag mit der Schaltfläche „Test“ und schließen den Dialog mit „Ok“


Im Abschnitt „Datenzugriff“ unter „Content Manager“ ist dann der Eintrag „Berichtsausgaben in einem Dateisystem speichern?“ auf „Wahr“ zu setzten.
Zum Abschluss speichern und Dienste neu starten


Schritt 3: Cognos Connection
Der in den Schritten 1 und 2 eingestellte Pfad stellt das Basisverzeichnis für die Reportausgabe dar. Nun können innerhalb von Cognos Connection weitere Unterverzeichnisse angelegt werden.

Wechseln Sie zur Cognos Administration und wählen Sie den Abschnitt „Dispatcher und Dienste“

Dort ist in der Symbolleiste die Funktion zum Verwalten der Verzeichnisse zu finden in der die Unterverzeichnisse (z.B. für verschiedene Abteilungen) angelegt werden können.

Nach dem Einrichten stehen diese Verzeichnisse in den Ausführungssoptionen unter dem Punkt „im Dateisystem speichern“ der einzelnen Berichte zur Verfügung.
