Cognos 8 BI Dashboard Studio

Finally got my hands to installing and trying it.

Well, it looks nice, allows flash-based chart formating and turns Cognos portal pages into more dynamic “dashboards”.

But it’s strangely slow (tried on a couple of computers) and all in all looks kinda “alpha” and plugged in at last moment. Installation is not that easy too, it requires war building and deployement, procedures that not every BI consultant is aware off.

So I think we should wait for another couple of service packs and there’ll be a new standard tool for portal page development. XCelcious should be afraid )
