well, IBM is using webfocus stuff as a replacement/upgrade to the old query/400 application on their iSeries platform.
I'm not sure what market share the iSeries enjoys compared to IBM's other servers but I can't imagine IBM putting the iSeries out to pasture, or spending all that effort to integrate webfocus only to replace it with cognos...unless of course the 'right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing' at IBM over the past year or so.
Maybe cognos was an impulse buy and IBM didn't research what the iSeries group was up to with webfocus before they jumped in.
