Course overview
This training teaches data modelers how to model data using data modules in IBM
Cognos Analytics. Users will learn how to create data modules from different
sources, such as uploaded files. They will also identify how to customize their data
modules by adding joins, calculations, and filters. In addition, they will examine how
to group their data (for example, by using navigation paths), how to share their data
modules with others, and how to make use of some advanced modeling techniques,
such as relative date analysis.

Intended audience
