Cubus EV replaces IBM Cognos Executive Viewer (EV), as support for the application ends April 30th, 2017.
IBM Cognos EV users will have some options to consider on April 30th when support for the application ends. Options include: transitioning to Cubus EV, migrating to Planning Analytics Workspace, and continuing to operate EV unsupported.
The risks of operating unsupported applications on your vital enterprise architecture should be evident. We encourage all of our clients to seriously consider either upgrading to Workspace or transitioning to an alternative viewer.
IBM’s Planning Analytics Workspace offers significant visualization enhancements to EV, along with Watson’s intuitive intelligence engine.
Another option is Cubus EV, which offers existing Cognos EV users the ability to maintain all the same features, functions, and UI experience while maintaining support for the application. In addition, Cubus EV Analytics is fully compatible with IBM Cognos Executive Viewer and supports IBM TM1 (Planning Analytics Local 2.0), Oracle Essbase, and Microsoft Analysis Services.
These two short demo videos provide a good overview of both applications:
