In our previous blog article, Creating a Framework Manager (FM) Model for Cognos Audit Data, we talked about work that we’ve recently done to create dynamically modeled relational data in the form of a FM Model. Our intent was to capture all available audit data and align it along key data dimensions and couple it with reference data from the actual Cognos environment. Doing this required at least a couple iterations. As we started to actually use the data to create the vision we wanted of UniVisn being reflective of a real world Cognos environment we needed to tweak some things like relative time periods, object type dimensions and status and sources.
