About this video

IBM Cognos BI is a web-based report development tool designed to create anything from simple list reports to complex multi-page dashboards across multiple databases.

Create any report your organization requires from visualizations to EDI feeds to third parties, all with one tool.

Using the IBM Cognos BI Developer Trial Edition, you'll learn best practices for navigating Report Studio, the types of reports available, adding data, creating fixed filters, creating prompts (dynamic filters), and formatting. Next, you'll learn advanced topics such as prompt pages, variables, joints/unions, dashboards, drill-through reports, and active reports. Then we'll discuss securing our reporting environment through Cognos Administration, securing reports/directories/data, and the use of macros. Finally, we'll cover tips and tricks such as JavaScript and dynamic page breaking.

By the end of this course, users will be able to take the practical examples used in the videos and apply them to their own environment. Learning Cognos is like learning a foreign language, so continual immersion is needed. Practice a few times a week to become familiar with the interface, your data, your organization's requirements, and your reporting style.
