IBM Cognos Report Studio: An Accelerated Class
This course is intended as a follow-up to the one-day Impact Reporting Services - Intro to Reporting class delivered by Ironside in partnership with Broadridge Financial earlier this year. Potential interest in this class was identified through Broadridge.
While that class was delivered in a lecture format, this class will feature hands on demonstrations and workshops and focus strictly on the Report Studio tool within Cognos.
Through an understanding of Broadridge Financial data and methodology Ironside's senior technical instructor will tailor the class to Broadridge customers.
One day will feature workshops and demonstrations conducted in Broadridge Financial's development environment.
Ironside's Report Studio curriculum is five days, but this course will build on the previous class to accelerate the learning in a deep dive three-day class.
The course will be delivered in person at Broadridge's 1 Park Avenue offices.
