IBM Planning Analytics: Design and Develop Models in Planning Analytics Workspace (V2.0.x) (P8362G)

Overview

This course is designed to teach modelers how to build a complete model in IBM Planning Analytics using Planning Analytics Workspace. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, students will learn how to set up dimensions and cubes, 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, and model for different fiscal requirements.
