IBM Cognos Planning Contributor: Develop Applications (V10.1) is a four-day, instructor-led course in which participants will learn to build, administer, and deploy Planning Contributor applications through IBM Cognos Planning Administrator. In particular, participants will learn how to develop the Planning Contributor application (based on a Cognos 10 Planning - Analyst model), manage security using the Cognos security model, perform administrative tasks, such as importing and publishing data, and deploy the application to the Cognos portal. They will also learn how to create events using Cognos Event Studio, which will monitor changes in published Planning data. This course also contains a case study that helps participants further develop their skills as they create and administer a Contributor application.
