wordpress, drupal, cpanel, etc plugins

With the push to provide easier mechanisms to share Cognos content, I would like IBM to develop plugins for popular website, CRM, and e-commerce providers. The plugin should allow the website owner to define the credentials used, the target content, and additional details related to appearance. The plugin should then create the Cognos content directly on the page, turning the target area into a Glass section.

I believe this is would solve a great deal of issues met by a large number of customers, and would also be a great selling point as no other Enterprise BI tool has an easy way of embedding content like this. This could also be provided/sold as an addition to the Analytics Content Hub.

On a technical note, this should allow the website owner to define a connection to Cognos server side, then pass the generated cam_passport/usersession cookies to the user. This way the credentials would never be visible to the user. The full Cognos portal should be accessible, with granular controls allowing the site owner to decide exactly which elements are generated (appbar, individual menus, or only a specific dashboard or report).
