Converting from micro strategy to Cognos Reportnet

Converting from micro strategy to Cognos Reportnet

Converting from micro strategy to Cognos Reportnet

Has anyone migrated from Microstrategy to Cognos Reportnet? I need to give a time line to higher ups. Can you tell me how long it will take to convert like 30 reports to reportnet. the data model has 43 dimensions, 66 facts and is in Oracle.
Any help like technical issues/ concerns would be greatly appreciated.


RE: Converting from micro strategy to Cognos Reportnet

  It depends upon what type of reports you are trying to
  convert. Classify your reports into something like   
  simple, medium and complex. Simple reports usually  
  contains some metrics, filters and some formatting for
  which you can allocate an 8 hour timeframe. Medium
  contains some reports with many attributes, metrics,
  custom groups, etc and has some compound, partially
  complex metrics for which you might have to dedicate
  around 24 hrs and you might have to allocate 40 hours
  for complex reports where you have to consolidate
  different reports to generate a particular report or
  when you have some complex customization and formatting.
  These are only estimates and in your case you might have
  to look into details on your reports to arrive at a
  more closer estimate. Remember you will not be getting
  the same layout and the approach especially with respect
  to how the reports were run, drilling, layouts, page by
  etc. so the users have to be trained on the tool to get
  their satisfaction. This estimate does not take into
  account the time required to create those objects and
  only includes report creation and testing. If you have
  to include even the objects then you might need another
  160 man hours.
