A model is a collection of metadata that includes physical information and business information for one or more data sources.
IBM Cognos software enables performance management on normalized and denormalized relational data sources and a variety of OLAP data sources.
Creating a new model
To create a basic, but thorough, Framework Manager model from a relational database source, you will need to do the following:
Create a data source connection (or reference an existing one).
Create data source query subjects.
Create model query subjects to resolve modeling challenges, if necessary.
Set query item properties.
Relate the query subjects (define the joins).
Create model query subjects to present a business view.
Create a package of the items to present to the studio users.
Publish the package.
