J1221G - IBM Cognos Controller: Develop Application B161v10.2/v10.3

Overview

Duration: 5 days

This course teaches application developers how to set up a Controller application and effectively use Controller in their organization’s consolidation process. Students will also design and generate financial reports using Controller. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, students 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. Students 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.
