Video Description

Cognos Analytics is the latest version of IBM Cognos Business Intelligence and brings IBM right back into the game against new-age competitors such as QlikView and Tableau. This next-generation, sleek, unified tool provides end users, power-users, and IT professional with a fast, intent-driven dashboard and report-authoring interface on top of the strong foundation that IBM Cognos has provided over decades.

This course focuses on the advanced aspects of Dashboard creation and, assuming you have already done the dashboard course, starts with the rapid development of a tabbed dashboard, then moves on to the creation of stories and finally the distribution and maintenance of Dashboards. The course also explains the limitations of the Dashboarding tool and shows how to mitigate them in the report development tool. It is completely dedicated to Cognos Analytics – Reporting, the advanced report authoring tool.

The philosophy behind this course is that professional report authoring and dashboard development require you to use the full-fledged report development tool offered by Cognos v11. Going further you will master the Report Tool interface and learn how to create a report dashboard l using simple objects (for beginners). Then you quickly move on to advanced topics to overcome the limitations of Dashboard tool such as drill-through, prompt manipulation, advanced data formatting, making the dashboards printable, conditional highlighting, and more.

This course is designed to be complementary to the Report Studio v10 book and video course, and also complementary to Cognos Analytics v11 Dashboards for Power Users and Authors. It does not replace any of those books or courses
