    The Apparo Flow standalone version allows reading and writing in a variety of different databases.

    Apparo Flow is running within a webbrowser and can be called via hyperlinks from all reports or dashboards where links can be embedded.

    Authentication is provided using single sign-on in a Windows domain.

    That means users don’t have to log into Apparo Flow with a username and password, as Apparo Flow automatically identifies the user account in use.

    The standalone version is ideal for systems that use Windows domains and Active Directory.

    The standalone version requires the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) or the Apache Webserver

    Portal integration and data entry or Excel import within IBM Cognos Report Studio reports.

    The following versions of IBM Cognos BI are supported:

    • IBM Cognos Analytics 11
    • IBM Cognos BI 10.x


    From the user perspective Apparo Flow is fully integrated into the IBM Cognos BI environment, but both are technically separated.

    Both systems have the following common interfaces:

    • Webserver
    • IBM Cognos Web Services SDK for creating new entries in IBM Cognos portal and access to the IBM Cognos security system
    • Two additional files for IBM Cognos portal


    Almost all Apparo Flow entries in IBM Cognos Connection portal refer to these files and are needed to call external applications such as Apparo Flow.
    It does not modify any settings or files from IBM Cognos BI, so that the IBM Cognos BI environment with or without Flow Apparo behaves identically.
    As such, the IBM product support remains fully intact.
