Customise Cognos

Enabling customers large and small to extend, customise or embed IBM Cognos into portals, customer and vendor facing websites, and just about any application a company can envision.

Developed and sold by Motio since 2004, MotioADF allows companies to create and rapidly deploy highly tailored IBM Cognos BI solutions faster and more reliably than when using the raw IBM Cognos SDK. What development organisation wouldn't prefer to author and maintain just 5 lines of Java code utilising the MotioADF vs. over 100 lines of Java code using the raw IBM Cognos SDK?

The MotioADF provides such powerful productivity gains because of a well engineered "stack" that in-house and third party developers will truly enjoy using.

Cognos Security Authentication

IBM Cognos supports the implementation of Java based custom authentication providers. Custom authentication providers enable IBM Cognos to utilize customer specific sources for authentication and authorization. For example, security credentials may be stored in a proprietary database or in an external security system which is not supported by IBM Cognos out-of-the-box.

Motio has implemented custom authentication providers for a large number of IBM Cognos customers around the world. Having solved this problem numerous times in a wide variety of environments, Motio created a packaged solution which enables our experts to rapidly adapt IBM Cognos environments to custom security infrastructures in a very secure and performant manner.
