Course Description


Overview

IBM Cognos TM1: Design and Develop Models in Performance Modeler (V10.2) is an intermediate instructor-led course. This offering will teach modelers how to build a complete model in TM1 mainly using the Performance Modeler tool. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, students will learn how to create and customize dimensions and cubes, import and link data, and build and maintain applications. Note: This training was developed using IBM Cognos TM1 10.2 but is applicable to both IBM Cognos TM1 v10.2 and IBM Planning Analytics.

Audience

This intermediate course is for modelers.
