Low-Risk Namespace Migrations

Cognos Namespace Migration

Facilitate the migration of Cognos content and configuration from one Authentication Namespace to another.

When your Cognos Content is at stake, trust the experts to ensure a safe, secure, and complete migration. Our Persona product can make namespace migration a seamless and worry free process.

Traditional namespace migration projects are set up to fail. Not only are the projects complex and time/resource intensive, but you also end up with post project messes that burden your support staff with the cleanup. Whether you’re migrating from Series 7 Access Manager to LDAP or Active Directory, consolidating multiple existing Active Directory servers, or migrating user content from development to test, Motio can devise and implement the best solution for your specific needs.

Two Approaches

Namespace Replacement with Persona

With this approach, ZERO of your CAMIDs have to change. This is the least risky and lowest impact approach to transitioning security sources and can be done in under an hour.

Our Persona IQ product can "replace" your existing namespace with a special Persona namespace that allows you to virtualize all security principals that are exposed to Cognos.

Namespace Migration with Persona

In some unique cases, a namespace migration is the necessary approach. Persona can help by automating some of the migration processes, such as:

  • Helping you create mapping between old/new security principals
  • Finding, analyzing, and updating logic for the content in your Content Store

—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."
