Workshop Overview

Attendees will learn and gain practical experience with key features of IBM's Cognos Analytics service. This workshop is a half-day, hands on course intended to demonstrate and teach how to author reports using IBM Cognos Analytics and how to create operational dashboards via the IBM Cognos Analytics service.

Intended Audience

This workshop is a beginner-to-intermediate-level course, intended for business users and data analysts to learn more about data acquisition, data cleansing, data modeling, report design, and distribution using the IBM Cognos Analytics platform.  Although attendees do not need to be highly technical in order to find value in this workshop, those with experience manipulating data and reporting information using Excel or other similar software will find the IBM Cognos Analytics tools and course material more familiar.  This will be a hands-on, immersive, interactive experience; not a sales pitch. We’ll have fun while learning and applying new tools and skills.

  • Creating a Data Module: Participants will use IBM Congos Analytics to acquire, cleanse, transform, model, and stage data to be displayed in reports and dashboards.
