What This Case Study Covers

  • How reports were automatically extracted from Discoverer and migrated to Cognos in 4 weeks,
  • Discoverer to Cognos migration steps.
  • How we automatically extracted the Discoverer report metadata using ennSight.
  • The value of consolidating your total report count prior to migrating (i.e. reducing 9,000 reports to 500).
  • How to overcome Cognos migration issues like converting parameterized and cross-tab Discoverer reports.

Why This Is Important

Oracle Discoverer is no longer supported and self-service reporting is a "need to have". Replacing Oracle Discoverer is challenging when factoring in the cost, time, and effort required to select a replacement and convert the existing reports.

This case study outlines a use case, and breaks down the steps involved in extracting and converting Discoverer reports to Cognos.
