New Cognos BI and TM1 content from IBM

Cognos 10 Redbook is now avalaible on IBM site. I always respected RedBooks initiative, because these are actual books with lots of practical knowledge, not just product documentation. I’ve only skimmed through this book, it seems less tips’n'tricks than Packt one about Cognos 8 Report Studio. But it’s a very good overall coverage of what Cognos BI is and how all parts fit together.

And there’s an absolute must-read article about new TM1 9.5.2 Parallel Interaction feature.
I’m actually asonished to see an article of such depth in support knowledge base. It contains detailed explanation:
- of how things worked before, common problems and workarounds
- what has changed in server engine
- how will this change affect current systems
It’s actually terrific, I’d kill to get more of such articles on tools I work with, not just ‘try reinstalling ones’.

On an unrelated note: I’ve uploaded updated versions of tm1 stress testing tool (with more input parameters) and tm1 model comparison tool (just some bug fixing).

And on another unrelated note: I was nominated an IBM Information Champion again. Thank you all for reading this blog )
