It was suggested by IBM Support that we reach out to IBM Partners for this solution. As a Cognos Customer, we should not need to pay a third-party Partner for basic administration tools for this product. We pay considerable amounts on our IBM License, and our costs would essentially double if we paid a Partner, just to gain basic admin backup features.
Please also know that this "buy a third-party tool" reply is not what customers would receive from your competitors. Not only do your competitors offer basic administration features like this, but they also provide Performance Tools, and more out of the box for Administration, which are currently missing with Cognos.
I hope this honest feedback is helpful, thank you for considering this request.
