In this video, we explore the Cognos Analytics capabilities around web modeling and data modules. We show you step-by-step instructions on how to create data modules in Cognos 11.
You can use data modeling in Cognos to access and shape data from servers or uploaded files. You can create data modules by fusing together many sources of data including relations databases, Hadoop based technologies, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and text files.
