Motio Adds IBM Cognos TM1 Documentation Software, QUBEdocs, to its Portfolio

DALLAS, Texas - Jan. 15, 2015/PRNewswire/ -- Motio, Inc. announced today that it has signed a software reseller agreement with Mindfull (formerly  Cortell). Under the terms of the agreement, Motio will be a U.S. distributor of QUBEdocs, a product that documents, manages, and maintains IBM Cognos TM1 models.


QUBEdocs enhances Cognos TM1, the enterprise planning, budgeting and forecasting software from IBM, by adding a new dimension of visibility and information governance. QUBEdocs documentation provides an easy way to understand and access TM1 model information by organizing details on the model components and by visualizing relationships between cubes in data flow diagrams. QUBEdocs also ensures that organizations are compliant with regulatory agencies by updating the documentation as changes are made to the TM1 model, as well as tracking these changes.

"Accurate documentation is critically important for organizations who report to regulatory agencies and without a tool like QUBEdocs, creating documentation is often manual and time consuming," said Lance Hankins, CTO of Motio. "QUBEdocs is a logical complement to the Motio portfolio of software products. We've long understood the needs of highly regulated industries and the importance of audit trails and repeatable processes. Visibility into who's changing what in a Cognos BI environment, as well as the automation of key processes in that environment are a few of the major reasons why we developed tools like MotioCI and MotioPI for Cognos BI customers. We've thrived in these industries as our software has proven to save time and provide ROI to customers within months of implementation. QUBEdocs has proven to provide similar time savings and ROI for Cognos TM1 customers. More and more BI customers are expanding their analytics software portfolios and gaining a competitive edge by coupling Cognos BI with Cognos TM1. It just makes obvious sense for us to expand our expertise into the TM1 space and having an existing relationship with Mindfull as one of Motio's reseller partners, we are confident in the quality of their organization and their product."

"We are very excited about this partnership, as the synergies between both QUBEdocs and Motio solutions are very complementary," said Richard Johnson, Director of Mindfull. This is a natural alignment that will, we hope, benefit both Motio and Qubedocs customers by adding value to their existing BA platforms of Cognos BI and TM1."

An informative webinar about QUBEdocs will be available January 28, 2015. For more information: Contact Motio. For more information about QUBEdocs, visit http://www.qubedocs.com.

—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."
