IBM Cognos Analytics - Author Reports with Multidimensional Data (V11.0) - B6061G

Beschreibung

This course is designed to guide report authors in building on their expertise with IBM Cognos Analytics by applying dimensional techniques to reports. Through interactive demonstrations and exercises, participants will learn how to author reports that navigate and manipulate dimensional data structures using the specific dimensional functions and features available in IBM Cognos Analytics.

After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Introduction to Dimensional Concepts
  • Introduction to Dimensional Data in Reports
  • Dimensional Report Context
  • Focus Your Dimensional Data
  • Calculations and Dimensional Functions
  • Functions for Navigating Dimensional Hierarchies
  • Advanced Drilling Techniques and Member Sets
  • Set Up Drill-Through Reports
  • End-to-End Workshop
