IBM Cognos Controller Schulung:
Learn to set up and use Controller in your organization\'s consolidation process

IBM Cognos Controller: Develop Applications (V10.1) is an intermediate five-day instructor-led training course. It is designed to teach application developers how to set up a Controller application and effectively use Controller in their organization\'s consolidation process. Students will also design and generate financial reports using Controller. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, students will set up a Controller application by creating the necessary structures (such as accounts and companies), and then test the application to ensure that it works properly. Students will also learn how to work with currency conversion, intercompany transactions, and investments in subsidiaries, as well as define configuration settings and user access to the application.
