IBM Cognos Workspace Advanced

IT departments are often tasked with providing an option for business users to create their own dashboard style reports in a flexible and cost effective manner. In order to answer the growing demand and further increase user adoption, IBM offers Cognos Workspace (formerly Business Insight) and Cognos Workspace Advanced (formerly Business Insight Advanced), two tools that empower your non­‐technical user community to start authoring rich reports in both tabular and graphical formats without the need to understand the complexities of the underlying technology.

Course Outline

 This two-day class is suited for both business users looking to create rich reports and dashboards to analyze business requests, and developers needing to understand how the tools work.

During this class, students will review both tools: Cognos Workspace and Cognos Workspace Advanced, beginning with an introduction to the user interfaces and the creation of simple reports, through to more complex topics, such as integrating external data.

Each topic will be highlighted with in-depth workshops, Q&A sessions, and tips and techniques drawn from over 15 years of cross industry experience.


The curriculum is based on the most recent version of IBM Cognos Workspace and Cognos Workspace Advanced. 

Depending on the course location and attendance, we can either use your database, our training database, or the sample data source included with IBM Cognos. For a more valuable experience, the course content can be entirely customized to any customer’s environment, by functional area, and/or data source(s), including, but not limited to the tutorials and workshops. 

All our instructors are IBM Cognos certified report authors. In addition, they provide the benefit of having over 20 years of realo world as well hands-on experience implementing the software. 

Our manuals are aimed at self-study. Students earn 16 CPE credits upon completion.


  • A good comprehension of Microsoft Windows and the Office suite is mandatory.
  • An understanding of the standard IBM Cognos BI portal (Cognos Connection) is beneficial.
