In this section, we show how to create a dashboard in IBM Cognos Business Insight for the users who are involved in the planning process. The dashboard can include the following objects:

We use the Great Outdoors company use case to show how to create a dashboard for the sales department. Lynn Cope, the Advanced Business User, uses IBM Cognos TM1 data to create reports, add these reports to the dashboard, and add IBM Cognos TM1 Websheets or a link to the application for managed distribution. In this, we do not discuss the IBM Cognos TM1 modeling and how to create an IBM Cognos TM1 Contributor application for a managed contribution. We assume all this work has been done previously. We also assume that IBM Cognos TM1 is configured to work with IBM Cognos BI.
Creating a data source and package
For IBM Cognos TM1 data to be available for professional report authors to create reports the modeler, John Walker must create an IBM Cognos TM1 data source and publish a package to the IBM Cognos Connection portal. We give an overview of the steps for that process in this section.
To create a data source and package:
IBM Cognos TM1 package added to IBM Cognos Connection portal
Objects used in the dashboard
Now that the IBM Cognos TM1 package is available for the professional report authors, they can use IBM Cognos Report Studio to create reports. The reports use live IBM Cognos TM1 data so that users can see the change in data immediately after a value is entered to the IBM Cognos TM1 cube by a planning contributor. Users can monitor the planning process or change drivers to see how that influences the entire performance.
Figure shows the following objects in IBM Cognos Connection that we used when creating this dashboard:

After professional report authors create and save the reports on the IBM Cognos Connection portal, Lynn can use them on the dashboard that she wants to create. Apart from that, she uses the IBM Cognos TM1 Websheets and IBM Cognos TM1 Contributor application to create a dashboard with all the components that are necessary for the users who are involved in the planning process for the Great Outdoors company.
To complete this example, follow these steps:
