Demos of Techniques that Make Cognos Transformer a Valuable Part of BI

Business intelligence solutions deliver tremendous value to organizations as long as people use them. User adoption is the primary key to success because the vast majority of BI value comes from the improved decisions it enables. Our experience across hundreds of projects has shown that user adoption rates are highest when online analytical processing (OLAP) is part of the solution. In this recorded webinar, you will learn best practices in OLAP modeling using Cognos Transformer including:

  • The value of online analytical processing (OLAP)
  • A reference business intelligence architecture
  • How to synchronize Transformer and the data source
  • Customizing the Transformer model using sub-dimensions and relative time categories
  • Resolving conflicts when using multiple data sources
  • Setting measure properties and comparing roll-up options plus applying basic cube security
  • OLAP enhancements in Cognos 10
