The Cognos BI server interprets user gestures and report specifications and translates them into data-retrieval queries that are tailored to the most popular RDBMS, OLAP, CRM, and ERP sources. The term dynamic query refers to the planning and execution of queries using the Java-based extensible query engine in the Cognos platform. Leading practices, learned over decades of BI software development, were applied to its design.
This IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide introduces IBM Cognos Dynamic Query and provides an overview of its features, benefits, and architecture. This information is intended for Cognos BI administrators, authors, modelers, and power users who need to understand the business value of the dynamic query layer.
