IBM Cognos TM1:Design and Develop Modes in Performance Modeler (V10.2) training explains how to develop a complete model inTM1 using the Performance Modeler tool. Under the mentorship of an experience trainer, the participants will get hands on experience on numerous essential concepts, including the creation and customization of dimensions, and cubes. How to import and link data along with building and maintaining the applications is explained during the learning sessions. Focus is also led to modeling techniques with the objective to provide improved performance.

On the completion of this training, you will exhibit the following skillset:

  • Understand IBM Cognos TM1 components, architecture, environment, applications
  • Determine the TM! Position in financial performance management system and performance management system
  • Create and customize dimensions and cubes
  • Work on model development process, create objects, and use related tools
  • Build, provide security, implement business logic, and add other features to the IBM Cognos TM1 application
  • Work on currency conversion and use TM1 techniques to reduce maintenance
  • Define model to resolve different fiscal requirements
Target audience
