Course structure

Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, clients will set up a Controller application by creating the necessary structures (such as accounts and companies), and then test the application to ensure that it works properly. Clients will also learn how to work with currency translation, allocations, intercompany transactions, investments in subsidiaries, advanced formula calculations, and user-defined business rules, as well as define configuration settings and user access to the application. Lastly, clients will create ad hoc and standard reports to analyze data, develop custom reports using the Report Generator utility and the Excel Link, and run multiple reports at the same time with report books.

Note: The last six units of this course (which deal exclusively with Controller reporting functionality) will also be offered separately as IBM Cognos Controller: Author Reports (v10.2). This course will be available in instructor-led (one day) and SPVC formats (codes P8222/J1222).

Audience

This intermediate course is for Application Developers.

Course availability

This updated course is now available in both instructor-led and SPVC (self-paced virtual training) formats and replaces offerings P8121/J1121.

Pre-requisites

Clients should have basic knowledge of group accounting.
