One of the ongoing major tasks in any Cognos environment is the need to manage change. Changes to ERP systems, databases, data sources, etc. occur on a regular basis. This requires changes to FM Models, packages, reports, queries, etc. Ideally you get notified of these well in advance of the actual change so they can be addressed in a planful way. But sometimes the change has already occurred and you need to fix things.
