Series 7 Migration

With the advent of IBM Cognos BI 10.2.2 is now the time to consider a migration away from IBM Cognos Series 7?

The IBM Cognos Series 7 Migration Assessment combines BSL's depth of knowledge of both product with our extensive experience gathering requirements and designing complex solutions. We will examine your existing IBM Cognos Series 7 application to understand your requirements. With our in-depth knowledge of building solutions and conducting migrations, we will evaluate whether you should remain on IBM Cognos Series 7 or migrate to IBM Cognos BI.

A number of organisations have decided now is the right time to change. Join them on this journey in creating a solution that works for you and your business. Recent projects include: WH Smith, Which? Bensons for Beds, Pace Plc & Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Our Migration Service

What our migration service offers is an initial free assessment of your existing IBM Cognos Series 7 models and an overview of IBM Cognos BI, comparing the functions and features of each product solution.

Using a workshop format we then explore the technical aspects of a migration, the risks and opportunities this entails  and the business benefits to be gained.  We will then produce an initial Migration Assessment Document which will include:

  • high level scope for the conversion project
  • estimate of resources required for this conversion
  • the degree to which the migration can be automated
  • the extent to which a redesign may be required


This document can be used to gain business approval for the project and form the basis of a project plan including training needs, resources and approximate timelines for the migration.
