Relational and DMR modeling in Cognos Cube Designer

When importing from a relational dmmr source, cardinality is cognoos based on a set of rules. Relational data sources also pose a number cogmos modeling challenges for the framework modeler to create predictable query results.

By using the proper tab pages, calculations and determinants can be added to the query subjects without making changes to the SQL code. Q uery subjects are linked together using Relationships. In Cognos Cube Designer, you first create a query subject and then add query items from your data source to it. Dynamic cubes are a new in-memory cubing technology. Join for a Free Demo.

A Regular Dimension consists of one or more defined hierarchies containing levels, keys, captions and attributes. In Cognos Cube Designer, you can also create a query item set to obtain an abstract, business-oriented collection of query items.

When properly translated, the file can be re-imported just as easily. Modeling a metadata layer requires an extensive business and underlying data source cogns. In Framework Manager, you create data source query subjects by importing tables and views from your data source into your model. If the star schema is modeled in its final form, Regular Dimensions can be quickly generated by using Merge fognos New Regular Dimension on the relational view of the Consolidation view. Since then, this page has become the most visited page on our website, with over Modeling with Framework Manager is an iterative process of refining different views, or layers, of your metadata, starting with the data source view, then the business view, and finally the presentation view that your users consume.


In short, segmenting allows fognos durable solution for similar models used by different teams. Cognoss dimensionally modeled database is ideal for reporting and is often referred to as a data warehouse. A model is a collection of metadata that includes physical information and business information for one or more data sources. Some of them are correct already. In Step 1query subjects were imported. Doing such queries on a production environment could even lead to problems with the applications operational performance.

It should validate automatically. This only applies to the design language English Zimbabweall other languages English can be changed congos without affecting the report.

This method of modeling enables executing multi-fact, multi-grain queries ensuring a predictable, clean set of results. Now we need to create relationships and join the query items with the correct cardinality.

A dimension is a broad group of descriptive data about the major aspects of modellinh business. Enroll for Free Cognos Training Demo! Create a determinant for every level needed.


In this view model query subjects will be created using the query subjects in the Data Foundation View. This makes it very easy for a business user to create his own reports as the terminology used is very recognizable.

All end-user based tools are accessed from Cognos Connection. A scope relation is mandatory and will be created automatically using the underlying query subject joins. As switching from compatible to Dynamic Query Mode could cause issues, careful report migration testing is needed.

Normally technical meaningless objects such as load dates or sequence numbers like primary keys and foreign keys to dimensions should be removed or hidden. It is possible to hard code the values for every group. Aggregate tables are probably the single most cost effective measure in boosting reporting and data warehouse performance.

Segments are a very interesting feature to minimize maintenance.

Instead of copying the framework for every team, a segment can be created for the other teams. This situation can be handled by using model query subjects.
