Cognos Training Leads to Success

Training is one of the most important aspects of implementing and maintaining your IBM Cognos system!  If you inherited Cognos or have recently been assigned to the Cognos team in your organization, I strongly encourage you to get some Cognos training.

If you have questions about IBM public training or Lodestar’s on-site training, please contact Kelly Ray at

Training is the first step to increasing your return on your IBM Cognos investment!

How do you get IBM Cognos training? IBM has a number of great Cognos public training classes offered to clients.   Lodestar Solutions can help register you for one of these training classes at a competitive price.  Training is offered at IBM training centers across the country and world.If you are not in a city that hosts IBM Cognos training classes, the travel costs to send several  team members to training can be expensive.  Additionally, if you are on an older version of Cognos, or running products that aren’t offered by IBM often, IBM public training may not be meeting your needs.

Lodestar Solutions offers an alternative to IBM Cognos public training.  We have created Lodestar training classes which are taught by our experienced consulting team on-site.  The material was developed by Lodestar and can be customized to meet your organization needs and versions.   You are only responsible for the class and the travel costs for the trainer.

Cognos training classes can include IBM Cognos BI Studios, Framework Manager, Planning, TM1, Cognos Finance … etc.

On-site training classes are available for 3-6 attendees.  If you have less than three attendees, Lodestar can provide consulting sessions where we teach you on your data.

Lodestar also offers customized end user training which can be conducted via a webinar.  Lodestar recommends that the end user training sessions are recorded so it can be used for future users.
