It is almost that time again!! Time for the Virtual Cognos User Group for Lodestar clients only! Lodestar hosts a Virtual Cognos User Group every quarter, that’s 4 times a year of great information FREE for our clients. We started these last year as the world was going virtual and they have been a great success. Below you will find all the information to attend. We break the Cognos User Group into 2 sessions on different days. Day 1 is for Cognos Analytics and Day 2 is for Planning Analytics. Join us for either one or both! Here is the best part, all sessions are recorded and as a Lodestar customer you have access to our library of videos from all user groups that you can watch anytime.
