IBM Cognos Analytics - Modeling with Data Modules

( Duration: 1 Day )

The IBM Cognos Analytics - Modeling with Data Modules training course teaches data modelers how to model data using data modules in IBM Cognos Analytics. Users will learn how to create data modules from different sources, such as uploaded files. They will also identify how to customize their data modules by adding joins, calculations, and filters. In addition, they will examine how to group their data (for example, by using navigation paths), how to share their data modules with others, and how to make use of some advanced modeling techniques, such as relative date analysis.
