m-Fin reports run significantly faster under Cognos 10, so I am working on upgrade preparations.
Cognos generates sql commands. The database recieves the sql and returns data to Cognos. Cognos then formats the data, creating tables with subtotals, rendering charts, putting commas in numbers, bolding text, and so forth. m-Fin reports are database efficient. So under CU’s Cognos 8.2 they usually take more time in Cognos than in the database. Now IBM/Cognos has released Cognos 10 and its processing is more efficient. It is faster then previous versions of Cognos. This is a significant advancement for m-Fin reports since that is where they spend most of their time. Ever since I confirmed this I have been chomping at the bit for Cognos 10.
