IBM Cognos Framework Course Overview

The IBM Cognos Framework is a metadata modeling tool that drives query generation for IBM Cognos software. A serious instance is an assemblage of metadata that includes physical information and occupation data for one or more data sources. IBM Cognos software enables performance management on normalized and denormalized relational data sources and a variety of OLAP data sources. Course Objectives: Execute a single server or distributed server installation and configuration of the IBM Cognos BI tool. Explore Framework Manager and Cognos Administration. Apply dimensional information to relational Metadata to enable OLAP-style questions. Learn about the DMR package and how to publish new packages. Examine the IBM Cognos BI security environment. Identify and implement techniques to optimize and tune your Framework Manager models. Achieve minimized SQL. Examine Query Studio, Report Studio and its Work Area interface. Create various types of Reports using the Cognos tool. Understand Multi-fact, Multi-grain and Stitch Queries. Get an overview about the Dynamic Query Mode. How to knead in a Multi-Modeler Environment. Edit an SQL statement to author custom queries. Manage the caches in the Cognos Administration. Understand Determinants.

 

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
All our trainers are fluent in English . Majority of our customers are from outside India and our trainers speak in a neutral accent which is easily understandable by students from all nationalities. Our money back guarantee also stands for accent of the trainer.
Medical services in India are at par with the world and are a fraction of costs in Europe and USA. A number of our students have scheduled cosmetic, dental and ocular procedures during their stay in India. We can provide advice about this, on request.
Yes, if you send 4 participants, we can offer an exclusive training for them which can be started from Any Date™ suitable for you.
