Today, June 23, 2017, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary celebrates its 78th anniversary of outstanding service to the U.S. Coast Guard, the American public, and recreational boaters and professional mariners around the world. The Auxiliary headlines the "Coast Guard Compass," the official blog of the U.S. Coast Guard, with a well-deserved tribute to its heritage and ongoing service as composed by Auxiliarists Rich Mihalcik (First District - Southern Region) and Kevin Conquest (Eleventh District - Southern Region).

  AUXINFO UPGRADE TO COGNOS

AUXINFO UPGRADE TO COGNOS VERSION 10 ON JUNE 21, 2017

1. An upgrade of the COGNOS software that supports AUXINFO will occur on June 21, 2017. This schedule has been set based on contractual obligations at the Coast Guard Operations Systems Center (OSC) to complete specific work items previously funded and scheduled.

2. This upgrade is not arbitrary but mandatory. Security vulnerability issues and mandates, coupled with the fact that older software versions are no longer supported, make the upgrade necessary. AUXINFO's server operating system, its COGNOS software, and the portal interface software will all be upgraded. From a user perspective, there will be changes in the appearance to the user interface, however no cube or report structures themselves will change. Again, AUXINFO's cubes, both new and legacy, will not change, nor will the National Reports.

3. While AUXINFO's look and feel will change, there is another key concern for users. The upgrade is to COGNOS' server software (which is four generations old), and it will erase the current cube shortcut structures. Existing AUXINFO bookmarks/shortcuts will not be transferred. Additionally, it will not be possible to run the current and upgraded systems in parallel, so once the upgrade is complete there will be no way to study old bookmarks/shortcuts. This means that if an AUXINFO user wants to maintain an established bookmark/shortcut, they will need to make note of what is included in the bookmark by June 20, and then recreate it after the upgrade.

  CHANGE IN COAST GUARD DIRECTIVES WEB SITE

CHANGE IN COAST GUARD DIRECTIVES WEB SITE AND INTERIM AVAILABILITY OF ALTERNATE AUXILIARY ACCESS SITE;

  1. The Coast Guard is changing how it projects its online presence to the public. Changes in its public information management system are expected to continue through September 2017. This will result in more consistent style and improved ability to share web content with other military services, as well as provide a more stable internet platform for public user interaction.  The Coast Guard Office of Public Affairs (CG-0922) is overseeing this transition and new site management.

 

  1. A result of this transition is that changes are being made to the web locations of public-facing Coast Guard resources like manuals, instructions, and forms. Until recently, such resources were available through the www.uscg.mil/directives web site.  That site has been changed to the web site of the Coast Guard Directives and Publications Division (CG-612):  http://www.dcms.uscg.mil/Our-Organization/Assistant-Commandant-for-C4IT-CG-6-/The-Office-of-Information-Management-CG-61/aboutCGDS/

 

  1. This transition will make for a more dynamic Coast Guard public-facing online environment. Therefore, links to the old Coast Guard directives site should be replaced with links to the new CG-612 site, and semi-annual checks of links to Coast Guard sites should be performed. 

 

  1. If you go to www.uscg.mil/directives, you will instead be taken to the new CG-612 web site. This site is still being filled with public-facing Coast Guard manuals, instructions, and forms, and should be fully loaded by the end of June 2017.  Until then, you may find that some Coast Guard publications that are often used by the Auxiliary are missing.

 

  1. In the interim, the Assistant National Commodore - FORCECOM (ANACO-FC, Commodore Bob Holm) and Deputy ANACO-FC (Pete Jensen) have created a temporary and easy-to-use repository for Auxiliary and often-used Coast Guard manuals and instructions. These manuals and instructions are now easily accessed and can be found at: http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=H-DEPT&category=auxiliary-manuals
