IBM Cognos Data Manager: Build Data Marts with Enterprise Data (V10.2)

Overview

IBM Cognos Data Manager: Build Data Marts with Enterprise Data (V10.2) is a five-day, instructor-led course that teaches participants how to move, merge, consolidate, and transform data from a range of data sources to build and maintain subject-area data marts. In the process, students will create a catalog and add connections to data sources and targets. They will also deliver fact and dimension data to a data mart through the use of builds and the dimensional framework. In addition, students will learn how to automate common functionality and handle complex data issues, such as unbalanced hierarchical structures.
