Texas Tech University System chooses MotioCI to Advance Their BI Best Practices

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2008

Motio, Inc. (formerly Focus Technologies) announced today that the Texas Tech University System has chosen MotioCI to streamline their BI development efforts by automating BI best practices.

Texas Tech's experience with large scale BI environments and the expansion of their IBM Cognos BI implementation led them to realize the importance of version control for BI content. With new campus users from Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center coming on board, MotioCI's automated Version Control for BI content ensures that valuable time and information is not lost, giving the Texas Tech BI teams peace of mind and allowing them to concentrate on development as opposed to time consuming recovery tasks.

"We had one report author delete a series of reports and could not recover them without restoring the entire Cognos content store, thus losing all of the work completed since the last backup. We know how valuable version control is and we knew we had to have it," said Dustin Jordan, Assistant Managing Director of Technology Operations & Systems Management, Texas Tech University System.

Texas Tech's BI environment is made up of 19 modelers who also write reports and 50 additional report writers. They are also licensed for an additional 2,500 users of Query and Analysis Studio and several groups have plans to distribute information from their ERP only through IBM Cognos making the Texas Tech BI user base one of the largest educational BI environments in the country.

"Working with Texas Tech has been extremely refreshing. A leader in the educational BI space, Texas Tech immediately understood the value provided by MotioCI, how it applied to their reporting workflow, and the timesaving's nature. I appreciate and admire their commitment, dedication, and overall foresight into BI excellence," said Charles Bowen, Account Executive, Motio Inc.
