Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 06, 2011
Motio, Inc. announced their release of MotioCI 2.1, the latest version of their industry leading software for IBM Cognos.
Version 2.1’s new features extend upon version 2.0, providing a progressive set of advanced functions for IBM Cognos. The upgrade from MotioCI 2.0 is incredibly user friendly and intuitive, complete with a new user interface. The new features improve upon multiple aspects, resulting in stronger functionality for Cognos BI administrators, developers and managers. Some of the new features include:
IMPACT ANALYSIS. See the impact of a promotion into a new environment before committing to a deployment. Eliminate trial and error by testing promotions for successes & failures in a staging location. Diff between environments and analyze the results.
PROMOTION GROUPS. Promote to multiple Cognos environments in one easy step. MotioCI 2.1 allows for the configuration of numerous Cognos environments into a Promotion Group. This presents the ability to promote to multiple environments simultaneously, saving valuable time.
PROMOTION HISTORY. A smarter way to investigate the events for a particular promotion is through the Promotion History feature. This feature provides a digest of information including such items as the source environment, promotion results and when the label was promoted and by whom.
UNIFIED VIEW. Now IBM Cognos users have the ability to access ALL their Cognos environments within a single session in MotioCI. Alternate between your Cognos environments and view everything within each instance in a single view.
REFERENCE TRACKING. Understand the relationship between Cognos objects by revealing which packages and objects reference or are referenced by other reports and objects. Exposing these dependencies grants you greater transparency into your Cognos environment and allows you to realize what objects will be affected by a single change.
AUTOMATED TEST CONFIGURATION. Creating and maintaining test cases is simplified with several new features in MotioCI 2.1:
-Auto-generate tests from the suite level, this feature automatically finds parameters, views,
saved outputs, etc. and automatically applies them to all associated test cases.
-Drag & Drop pre-configured parameters, assertions and test cases.
-Clone previously executed test cases with saved outputs.
-Regular Expression Assertions can be applied to test suites.
“I am very excited about the release of MotioCI 2.1. Our product engineering team implemented truly innovative features and produced a wonderful upgrade in version 2.1. All of the new features come directly from real customers and will deliver immediate business value," says MotioCI product manager Roger Moore.
