Workshop Title: Unleashing the Power of Data Modules in IBM Cognos Analytics

In my workshop, I will share practical examples of the latest developments in data modeling tools in IBM Cognos Analytics. Since the release of version 11.0, the development in this area has been monumental, and with the introduction of version 12.x (but also already in version 11.2.4), we are now at the cusp of a revolution in enterprise-wide data modeling capabilities.

Our session is devoted to unveiling the secret tips and tricks of data modules. We will delve into a variety of key topics including:

  • Navigating paths within data modules
  • Leveraging dimensional functions for advanced analytics
  • Utilizing Cognos macros to automate tasks and enhance functionality
  • Integrating conformed dimensions for consistency across reporting
  • Dynamically switching data sources at runtime to enhance performance
  • Employing multi-tiered modeling techniques with an integration layer and several business layers
  • Multilingual models
  • Data security
  • Join optimization
  • ...

A part of our workshop will be the comparison between the traditional Framework Manager and the modern data modules. I will demonstrate why the gap is widening in favor of data modules, which now offer a richer set of capabilities far beyond what was previously possible with Framework Manager.

This is an opportunity for you to not only understand the full potential of data modules but also to learn how to apply this powerful tool to your organizational needs. Ensure that this potential does not go untapped and join us to transform your data into actionable insights.

Thank you for a good and interesting presentation. I have just tested using the dimensional function in report studio and it just works.
