CognosPaul's session at TechXChange. Bursting in Cognos!

By Paul Mendelson posted Fri July 21, 2023 09:07 AM


Report bursting is a powerful capability that allows you to create a single template report and effortlessly generate customized outputs for each recipient. Whether you're dealing with a handful of recipients or a large-scale distribution, Cognos will handle the workload efficiently, freeing up your time for more strategic tasks.

During our session, we'll guide you through the process of setting up and optimizing report bursting in Cognos. One exciting topic on the agenda is using Event Studio to create dynamic subject lines for burst emails. Imagine personalizing subject lines based on specific recipient attributes, or attaching the results of multiple burst reports into a single email.

Another area we'll explore is the smart utilization of bursting on directory entries. By leveraging this feature, you can ensure that users see their own data instantly - no matter how complex the source report. We'll discuss real-world use cases that highlight the practical benefits of this approach and how it can enhance your organization's reporting workflows.

Our aim is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of report bursting, from personalizing the individual burst outputs to common (and no so common) problems you may encounter. We will also go over integrating the burst outputs with other Cognos functionalities, covering all of the essential aspects that ensure you make the most of this feature.

So, if you're ready to take your reporting game to the next level and explore the untapped potential of Cognos report bursting, make sure to reserve your spot for "Maximizing Cognos Reports with Report Bursting."
