Contenuti del corso

Essentials for IBM Cognos BI (V10.2) is a blended offering consisting of five-days of instructor-led training and 21 hours of Web-based, self-paced training. This accelerated offering is intended for core project team members wishing to acquire a broad understanding of a Business Intelligence platform implementation. During the ILT segments, participants will perform hands-on demos and workshops that cover four essential topic areas: Modeling, Report Authoring, Workspace Advanced, and Administration of a BI platform. Throughout the ILT, participants will be guided to more-in depth training offerings and paths leading to certification.
