This three day class is best suited for anyone needing to gain a foundation in Cognos BI reporting.


IBM Cognos Report Studio Fundamentals is designed as a three day course to provide report authors with the knowledge necessary to develop, deploy and manage relational based reports. This course will empower report developers with all the tools and capabilities necessary to author professional reports in IBM Cognos Report Studio.

Without user adoption, Business Intelligence implementations stagnate and over time, becoming a liability rather than an asset. Allowing technical users and IT staff to easily design reports that provide comprehensive and tactical analysis of the organization’s key metrics is the primary factor in an implementation’s success. One of the biggest pain points that we hear while interacting with our clients is that Query Studio, although an exceptional tool, does not have the technical capabilities needed to provide the strategic analysis that is key to a company’s successful utilization of Cognos.

Grant your organization the flexibility to make better business decisions on a daily basis by allowing report writers to utilize the full spectrum of options available in IBM Cognos Report Studio.


Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Display your data via multiple report types
  • Focus queries with prompts and filters
  • Extend reports using calculations
  • Sum and aggregate data
  • Query modeling
  • Enhanced report layout with additional report building techniques
  • Highlight information based on business rules


A good comprehension of Microsoft Windows and the Office suite is mandatory. An understanding of the standard IBM Cognos BI portal (Cognos Connection) and Query Studio is beneficial.
