Course Overview

IBM Cognos A-Apps: Configure and Extend Analytic Models and Reports (v10.1) - is an intermediate, four-day instructor-led training course. It is designed to teach developers how to implement, modify, extend, and troubleshoot an IBM Cognos Analytic Application through the use of Adaptive Application Framework. Students will generate Analytic Applications reports from an existing project and then create a complete Analytic Application reporting solution. They will learn about the components and architecture of Adaptive Warehouse and how to use warehouse objects such as facts, dimensions, calendars, and currency conversion objects. They will practice using references, calendars, transformations, ERP sources, role playing dimensions, and join paths, and gain an understanding of Load Management, change data capture, and historical dimensionality, and investigate how to use different data sources for their models.
