IBM Cognos BI Report Studio Fundamentals
Without user adoption, Business Intelligence implementations stagnate and over time, becoming a liability rather than an asset. Allowing technical users and IT staff to easily design reports that provide comprehensive and tactical analysis of the organization’s key metrics is the primary factor in an implementation’s success. One of the biggest pain points that we hear while interacting with our clients is that Query Studio, although an exceptional tool, does not have the technical capabilities needed to provide the strategic analysis that is key to a company’s successful utilization of Cognos.
Grant your organization the flexibility to make better business decisions on a daily basis by allowing report writers to utilize the full spectrum of options available in IBM Cognos Report Studio.
This three day class is best suited for anyone needing to gain a foundation in Cognos 10 BI reporting.
During Report Studio Fundamentals, students will be introduced to the entire Report Studio toolkit, beginning with an examination of the various report types, through to more complex topics such as conditional formatting.
Each topic will be highlighted with in-depth workshops, question and answer sessions and tips and techniques drawn from over 15 plus years of cross industry experience.
The curriculum is based on the most recent version of IBM Cognos Report Studio, and uses the sample data sources included in the IBM Cognos BI Samples package.
All our instructors are IBM Cognos certified report authors. In addition, they provide the benefit of having up to fifteen years of real-world experience.
Our manuals are aimed at self-study.
A good comprehension of Microsoft Windows and the Office suite is mandatory.
An understanding of the standard IBM Cognos BI portal (Cognos Connection) and Query Studio is beneficial.
