Home / B5151G – IBM Cognos Analysis Studio: Analyze Data

IBM Cognos BI Analysis Studio: Analyze Data (V10.1/10.2) is a one-day, instructor-led course that teaches business authors to navigate and analyze data in Analysis Studio. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops, attendees will discover trends, identify opportunities, and learn how to make better business decisions. Students will learn techniques such as ranking, filtering, asymmetrical crosstabs, and graphing to help them analyze large volumes of data (whether OLAP or dimensionally modeled relational metadata). They will also learn to manage reports through IBM Cognos Connection.

Please Note: Analysis 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.
