IBM Cognos Training

By running courses on site with pre-configured pc's there is no set up required other than an available training room.  Course delegates do not need to be out of the office for days and often useful discussion takes place on how best to use the product functionality in your environment.

When only one or two people need training or refresher updates our public training options may be more effective.
