Подробное описание курса.


IBM Cognos PowerPlay Client: Explore and Build Reports (V10.1/10.2) is a two-day, instructor-led course
designed to teach users the basic skills needed to analyze business data and create reports in PowerPlay.
Fundamental business intelligence (BI) topics are covered, along with technical skills required to successfully
explore PowerCube data and remote data sources in PowerPlay and to apply these techniques to create
professional reports. To analyze their data, participants will learn how to drill through cube data, replace
categories and measures in a crosstab, change the display to view the data in one of several graphical
formats, format each display to enhance their analysis, sort, rank, and filter data, and create calculations. To
create reports, participants will learn how to build a crosstab report, perform and add calculations, use
advanced nesting functions, create subsets, and distribute reports.

Please Note: Screen captures and labs in this course are taken from the V10.1 of the product. However, the
concepts, procedures, and tasks are all applicable to a V10.2 environment and are suitable for V10.2 user


Please refer to course description for description and information.
