IBM Cognos Analytics: Author Reports with Multidimensional Data (v11.0) Training

What IBM Cognos Analytics: Author Reports with Multidimensional Data (v11.0) training is all about?

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.
