IBM Cognos BI 8.4.1 release supports SQL Server Analysis Services 2008


IBM has released Cognos BI 8.4.1 and they claim that it finally supports SSAS 2008. I will be upgrading a client in early January 2010 and put this to the test. Prior to 8.4.1 there was a way to access an SSAS 2008 cube but it would not pass the user credentials with Kerberos as it does with SSAS 2005. I will be testing the new release for integrated security in particular.

    After upgrading and applying the patch, SQL Server Analysis Services 2008 is now in the drop down for data sources. I was able to successfully create a data source set to use the external namespace of Active Directory and browse the cube passing my credentials.
