Completed conversion of Changepoint reporting from Report Designer to COGNOS Report Studio:
This project involved identifying key business and financial reports being generated from our Changepoint system (SQL) for conversion from Report Designer to COGNOS Report Studio. Consultation with all departmental customers was undertaken. With the key legacy reports identified, I began to analyze the data sources and develop replacements using the new COGNOS tool. COGNOS provides much stronger mathematical, analytic and graphic functionality, so enhancements were built into the new reports as they were built and tested. Conversion of the legacy reports was completed in about 8 months, 2 months ahead of schedule. Concurrent new development was also undertaken as expertise and familiarity with the new reporting tool was gained. We are now producing very sophisticated analytical reports, graphing performance and using SQL queries to access raw data within the COGNOS reporting framework.
None that I can think of.
