All end-user based tools are accessed from Cognos Connection.

Sometimes the languages are not mapped correctly. Facts should only contain measures and degenerate dimensions. The creation of multiple alias shortcuts on a table that use different relationships will handle these ambiguous relationships graciously. Regular shortcuts will be used while creating the Presentation View. Level information is used to roll up the measures. You then associate the security views with users, groups and roles; these associations are stored in your Content Manager instances.

Using the same framework, multiple package can be defined each containing one or more star schemas. These types of databases are modeled relationally and are highly normalized.

Legacy report will continue running and new reports can be built using DQM. In Presentation Viewthere will only be shortcut links that point to the query subjects in Business View. A scope defines a relationship between regular dimension and measure dimension.

A dimension is a broad group of descriptive data about the major aspects of a business. The portal contains all available reports, analysis, dashboards and offers advanced sharing, publishing and security features.

We only want business users to have access to Presentation View, not Physical or Business View, but we cannot exclude Physical or Business because Presentation depends on it. A user can view the detailed information.

When all data source objects are imported, the model should be scrutinized to verify all relations between the query moselling are correct. Q uery subjects are linked together using Relationships. Modeling a metadata layer requires an extensive business and underlying data source knowledge.

Create a determinant for every level needed.

Creating a DMR model

You can do a lot with expressions in Cognos. Therefore it is highly recommended to use only 1 data source per physical database platform.

In every data warehouse a number of star schema’s are present. Suppose an organisation has a centralized data warehouse. A segment is a new project that is linked by a shortcut to the main project. Mixing relationships at different levels will only cause confusion and incorrect results.

Three Tier Design Physical View holds the query subjects and relationships used to build the model. This means it is possible that a query subject will behave as a dimension in one query and as fact in another query.

This means less joins: By creating an efficient layered structure, relational models can cobnos modeled into virtual star schemas, providing predictable and reliable query results to the end user.


While creating a model it is important to create a proper structure. When changes are made in the database, importing is by far the easiest way d,r update the query subjects. Within a namespace, the modeler can use folders to group standalone filters or query subjects. Doing so will enable you to see what database columns are in a report when debugging the report.

The semantic layer maps complex data into familiar business terms and shields cryptic database language from the end-user. Some objects that are used when modeling dynamic cubes are not compatible with relational and DMR metadata.

Types of Models: Relational/DMR model In Cognos

Remember when we created the expression to concatenate first and last name to a full name query item? Join for a Free Demo. When new facts or dimensions are added, they can be quite easily added to the model, representing a new star schema.

By using the calculations in Model Query subjects, modelers can avoid entering freehand SQL in data source query subjects, which should be avoided at all times for maintenance purposes.
