Hello Gavril,

Okta does offer a special service which is call Professional Services.

Our Professional Service team specializes in implementation.

Here is a Link for additional information about our Professional Service offering.

where is your IBM Cognos hosted? is it legacy on-premise (your environment) or hosted for you in the IBM Cloud ? you can work out the answer by checking the current login URL of Cognos .... if it ends in "analytics.ibmcloud.com" then it is a Cognos hosted in IBM's SaaS

Also you may have a sign in page like this - https://idaas.iam.ibm.com/

IBM uses IBMID to provide authentication - and this can be pointed at Okta on a mail domain by domain basis (so all your employees) so that this way they are all redirected to the Okta IdP
This is a form of 'inbound SAML'

You can raise a ticket with IBM and tell them you want support setting up SSO with Okta as the IdP for IBMID

I have also seen SAML configured for Identity Providers like Okta before - directly in the Websphere SAML SP settings tab.

So there will be a few options....
