Course Description

IBM Cognos Analytics: Author Reports with Multidimensional Data (v11.0) Training is designed to help report authors build their expertise with IBM Cognos by implementing dimensional techniques to reports. This technical training program educates individuals on how to author reports that manipulate and navigate data structures with the help of specific features and functions present in IBM Cognos Analytics.

Our enterprise training program is best for companies and organizations. In this program, you will develop a better understanding of reporting styles and dimensional concepts, and learn to create reports by utilizing dimensional data items such as levels, members, and hierarchies. It teaches you to project reports with dimensional techniques like slicers, edge filters, and filter functions. This program guides you through setting up drill-through to access from a data source to another, and you will also learn to assess reports with drill-down and drill-up techniques.

    why choose us



    I was sceptical at first whether to enrol with Microtek Learning or not, however, I am glad that I did- I got everything that was promised (maybe more). The trainer was very patient and knowledgeable and with his effort and mine, I was able to clear the exam with ease! Keep up the good work everyone.

    I was recommended the ITIL 4 Foundation course by an IT professional who had completed the same course at Microtek Learning. The training gave me a thorough understanding of service management that I felt I could take back to my job as an IT Project Management and apply it to improve the value of products and services.
