PowerPlay Client Schulung:
Basic skills needed to analyze business data and create reports in PowerPlay

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 education.
