Cognos Training

Enabling the end-userslide2.jpg

LPA’s Cognos Training solutions are customized for your business, and the courses are customized for your employees. We can set up as many days of training in as many different fields as your company needs to make your technical and business users comfortable with their new tools. We will customize the sessions to use your data and your terminology so each workshop will be relevant to your company’s everyday BI use.

Walking through the process

All of our instructors are experienced teachers and also BI consultants. This means that they know your solution inside and out. They will come to your location on your schedule, and walk through the solution using your data and your models. Our training model is made for efficiency – it reduces travel time, fits into your schedule, and prepares your authors to create reports on their own as soon as we walk out the door.   LPA's consultants are trained using the same materials delivered in these offerings.  LPA provides the best trainers and materials to save your organization as much as 50% compared to others.
