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.
