IBM Cognos Cube Designer: Design Dynamic Cubes (V10.2) Training

Course#: B5263G

IBM Cognos Cube Designer: Design Dynamic Cubes (V10.2) is a two-day, instructor-led course that is designed to provide participants with introductory to advanced knowledge of how to model metadata for predictable reporting and analysis results using IBM Cognos Cube Designer. Participants will learn the full scope of the metadata modeling process, from initial project creation, to publishing dynamic cubes and enabling end users to easily author reports and analyze data.

Audience

This intermediate course is intended for Data Modelers and Administrators who design dynamic cubes that are used to develop applications in the IBM Cognos environment.

Prerequisites

You should have:

  • Knowledge of common industry standard data structures and design, and experience gathering requirements and analyzing data.

Duration

2 Days
