IBM Cognos Transformer: Design OLAP Models (V10.1) (Self-paced)


Základní info

After you receive confirmation that you are enrolled, you will be sent further instructions to access your course material and remote labs. You will then have a 30 day window in which to complete your course. Within this 30 days, you will have 336 hours of elab time. The self-paced format gives you the opportunity to complete the course at your convenience, at any location, and at your own pace. The course is available 24 hours a day, but lab system access is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. When you are not using the elab system, ensure that you suspend your elab to maximize your hours available to use the elab system. Once you have accessed the course, help is available Monday through Friday; questions will be responded to within 24 hours.
This is the self paced training version of ""IBM Cognos Transformer: Design OLAP Models (V10.1)"" classroom course. IBM Cognos Transformer: Design OLAP Models (V10.1) is a four-day, instructor-led course that provides developers with knowledge of OLAP modeling concepts using Transformer. You will learn how to design, build, and maintain PowerCubes for use in IBM Cognos BI so that end users can easily analyze data.
