Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

WKC - Metadata Import of Cognos Assets should also include calculations and expressions performed in Cognos

Currently just the data flow through the imported Cognos artifacts is visible in Information Asset View and Data Lineage. As there is also business logic and KPI calculation in Cognos this information is also important for the Business User analyzing the Data Lineage Graph.

    Thanks for your idea. We can evaluate extending the existing Cognos import capabilities, that capture the Report and its query structure, the underlying Model and source Database information. Within the tool, the presence of Cogos is meant to provide a complete and hoslitic view of all informational assets of an Enterprise, and organzie and govern them thru Terms, Rules, Stewardship and other attributes, providing visibility and supporting lineage services.

    We understand the need for additional information to be included in such a view, and how that information is useful for the user to develop a deeper understanding. It is possible to add such information post-import (manually) thur the addition of custom attributes (properties).
