Cognos BI 10.2.x is alive again!!

Posted by Bidesh Pal on April 27, 2018

Most who are still on Cognos Business Intelligence software version 10.2.x would know that the software version was due End of Service this April 2018.

Code deployments without downtime / restarts

Posted by Sasidaran MR on March 22, 2018

One of the major challenges of promoting code to successive instances is packaging the code for promotion and finding a slot for downtime. Not to mention the sequence of steps required to carry out the procedures and to communicate to one and all about the impending downtime. Adding to this difficulty is finding downtime when users are accessing the application from across the globe.So irrespective of deployment size, either major or minor, the deployment process is never going to be easy.
