CWM to Cognos Framework Manager without OLAP option
« on: August 15, 2008, 07:14:21 AM »
Hi guys,

So here\'s my story. Basically, we are currently starting out on a project and our star model was done via Oracle Designer. Now is there a way to bring it into OWB 10g Release 2 and create the dimension with some underlying tables in it? This is my dilemma at the moment.  I guess ETL mapping into dimensions is much easier than making it into the table. The same principle goes for cube designing where I can define the level of the dimension. If i do this properly for sure things would become easier when we move to a multidimensional OLAP. All the mapping can stay the same because we\'ll be using the dimensions to map into. The other reasoning to use dimensional modeling in OWB is to maybe test report development with Oracle Report, Dashboard and JDeveloper.

Once the design is complete, I would like to export from OWB the CWM metadata and import the output into Cognos 8 Framework Manager. I\'ve read some blogs around and others says that Framework Manager doesn\'t have to worry about the underlying tables; ie: if we change from star schema tables to snowflake tables (for time dimension) or multidimensional tables in Analytical Workspaces. Can Cognos still take advantage on my OWB Collection import of dimensions and cubes? Do i need to install OLAPSYS Schema but not turn on the OLAP Option? How about the need for Java API\'s ? Can someone elaborate me on this as im really confused on the matter.
Many Thanks.
