Advanced Reporting Techniques

This webinar features some of our most frequently requested advanced reporting techniques. We focus on some of the more sophisticated foundational techniques for creating user-friendly IBM Cognos Active Reports.

Building on our foundational Active Reports training, we showcase the following hands-on techniques during this 90-minute event:

  • Creating breadcrumbs in your reports, allowing users to easily navigate to and from different levels of detail within a single, stand-alone Active Report.
  • Enabling two-way interactivity between report objects, allowing flexible navigation at either the parent or the child object.  This technique encourages end-users to explore causal relationships within the data.
  • Understanding how report bursting can be implemented to deliver different views of the same report to different recipients, streamlining report management, and optimizing report execution and delivery.
BUSINESS CONTEXT

Effective Active Report development techniques give the growing mobile audience the ability to explore data using intuitive, native gestures on the most commonly used mobile devices.
