This class is best suited for consumers and developers looking to create statement style reports to analyze business requests.


Organizations today are continually being asked to provide more flexibility to their data consumers while reducing the impact on IT resources. With limited training budgets and non-intuitive end user tools, providing robust ad-hoc capabilities has been out of reach of most companies. Adding to the difficulty surrounding these type of user requests is that the high level information consumers often wish to report is stored in a mix multidimensional and/or relational data sources. In order to answer the growing demand and further increase user adoption, IBM Cognos has introduced Business Insight Advanced

Simply launch Business Insight Advanced and start authoring rich reports without any need for understanding the complexities of the underlying technology. All of the functionality of Analysis Studio, Query Studio, Report Studio Express, and more, has been condensed into Business Insight Advanced.

During Business Insight Advanced, students will be introduced to the entire Business Insight Advanced studio, beginning with the creation of simple reports, through to more complex topics such as integrating external data.

Each topic will be highlighted with in-depth workshops, Q&A sessions and tips and techniques drawn from over 15 plus years of cross industry experience.

The curriculum is based on the most recent version of IBM Cognos Business Insight Advanced, and uses the sample data sources included in the IBM Cognos BI Samples package. All our instructors are IBM Cognos certified. In addition, they provide the benefit of having up to 15 years of real-world experience.
