BSP Software is pleased to announce a brand new MetaManager feature module: Compare Reports. This brand new feature provides long asked for functionality to aid with IBM Cognos Upgrades and report maintenance.

In the Deploy bundle, Compare Reports allows you to compare a report, set of reports, or folder of reports against the same subset of reports in another environment. In addition to comparing the full set of report properties (Metadata Model Package, Query Mode, Retentions, Parameters, etc), you can also do a visual comparison of report outputs in XML, HTML, PDF, and CSV.

This module is available now to any new or existing MetaManager customers with the Deploy bundle. Contact BSPSoftware@TechData.com and ask for Compare Reports.

Additionally, you can leverage your built in Diffing tool to Diff any two reports or outputs directly from the MetaManager user interface.
