IBM Planning Analytics: Design and Develop Models in Architect V2.0 (P8361G)

IBM Planning Analytics: Design and Develop Models in Architect V2.0 (P8361G)

Overview

Duration : 5 Days

This course is designed to teach modelers how to build a complete model in IBM Planning Analytics using the Architect tool. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, students will learn how to set up and verify dimensions, cubes, and views, manually enter data into these structures, and define the data that users can see. Students will also learn how to transfer data into the IBM Planning Analytics model, including the use of TurboIntegrator scripts to perform data transfer. In addition, the course outlines how to customize drill paths, convert currencies, model for different fiscal requirements, and deploy IBM Planning Analytics applications to the web.
