Flexible Copy

Learn how to copy data from one cube to another using a link, a new capability within Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler. This copy option can prove to be a better alternative than rule based implementation for situations such as when there are cube dependencies or user activity with frequent cache and validations.

In this short video, Ken O’Boyle, Senturus Senior Planning Architect, demonstrates how to map data from a source cube to a target cube by copying the information via the link implementation type to process. We also examine the two types of possible mapping matches, manual and automatic, and how the latter creates a parameter for each of the dimensions, thus allowing the flexibility to copy all the data or specific slices.
