IBM Cognos Query Studio: Build Ad-Hoc Reports (V10.1/10.2) is a one-day, instructor-led and instructor-led on-line course designed for business authors who want to learn how to create, modify and organize ad hoc reports. This course covers how to use different report capabilities, how to graphically display data, and how to create reports with a consistent look and feel through the use of templates. The course also covers basic administrative tasks, such as scheduling reports and delivering reports in different formats (e.g. HTML, PDF, Excel).

Please Note: Query Studio will not be available after version 10.2.2 - thus, we are recommending that our clients transition to Cognos Workspace Advanced. Please follow this link for the official announcement by IBM regarding Query Studio’s deprecation. Cognos Workspace Advanced delivers the same ad-hoc reporting functionalities as Query Studio, and more.
