Who We Are

What is a Cognos Ninja™?

Urban legend or modern day Analytics hero?

By definition, a Cognos Professional who works swiftly and quietly, and often under the cover of darkness,* to enable a more efficient, more accurate, and more reliable BI implementation for their organization is a Cognos Ninja™.

Cognos Ninja Code of Awesomeness**

We are passionate about what we do. We care about what our customers care about. Being a Cognos Ninja isn't just about being awesome all the time. It also means doing all the resource-intensive, time-consuming, totally non-awesome but totally necessary things that go into managing a mission critical business intelligence environment. At Motio, our job is to build the tools that enable Cognos Ninjas, such as yourselves, to do all those non-awesome things in the awesomest way possible so you can get back to doing awesome things.

The Cognos Ninja Network

Motio software is the weapon of choice for over 6,000 Cognos Ninjas and Motio has an extensive partner network that spans across 6 of 7 continents. We're still searching for our first Cognos Ninja in Antarctica. If you're stationed at a scientific research facility in the frozen desert and use Cognos, give us a ring!

*Eyestrain from screen glare is no laughing matter.

Client Case Studies

Achieving the most accurate and reliable BI implementations with Motio

"The automated testing provided by MotioCI proved invaluable. With so many reports being created and modified, and the framework model and data sources evolving, it was a huge advantage to have MotioCI proactively pointing out inconsistencies and errors."

—Tim McGuire, Ameripath...

"Our users were wowed by the functionality of MotioADF. The self-service nature of this application has reduced our number of support requests. Even a user with little or no training is able to figure the interface out and immediately become productive."

—Tim McGuire, Ameripath...

"We had one report author delete a series of reports and could not recover them without restoring the entire Cognos Content Store, thus losing all of the work completed since the last backup. We know how valuable version control is and we knew we had to have it."

—Dustin Jordan,...

—Rob Bakker, Eneco

"The relationshiop with Motio is an integral part of our rapidly expanding BICC, enabling holistic change control and proactive issues resolution on our critical reporting portfolio. It has and will continue to increase end user satisfaction and reduce total cost of ownership of our...

"With the complexity of our user interface, it would have taken us twice as long as it did if we had not started with Motio's software. They worked alongside of us to provide the best user interface for the product and the end results are quite impressive."

—Sheila Higgins, Avaya...

"When our Dev content store crashed, we had just implemented MotioCI four months prior. If we had not had MotioCI, we would have been in a really, really bad situation. Right there, it paid for itself. We would have lost months worth of development effort that was only in the Dev environment...

"I know of one instance several weeks ago where a set of reports went missing off the development environment and a ticket was submitted for the BACC support team. We were able to quickly show them how you can just restore the missing reports using MotioCI and their panic was over. It's...

"After we deploy to production, if something was missed in testing, or we have an issue, we can very easily roll back to a previous version using the MotioCI tool."

- Jon Coote, CIRA

"We could not manage our environment without MotioCI. The release team is no longer the bottleneck. Processes are going smoothly."

—Richard Wylde, Catlin

"Finding a solution which minimized risk and guaranteed that our existing security policies remained intact was very important to us. We were very impressed with the smoothness of the transition."

—Lisa Kelley, HealthPort

"MotioCI is an active insurance policy. It is doing exactly what we wanted it to do."

—Molly Doyle, University of Colorado
