IBM Cognos 10.2.1 Framework Manager Fundamentals and Advanced Training Courses - Lexington

IBM Cognos BI Framework Manager Fundamentals

Millions of dollars are wasted every year on Business Intelligence implementations that fail to provide a clear strategic architecture to presenting corporate information for end-user consumption. If the data is organized in a concise, consistent manner, and performs well, the project will be well received and accepted around the organization. In order to achieve this, a solid understanding of the IBM Cognos Framework Manager tool is necessary.

Based on a proven training curriculum, the Ironside Group will provide instructor-led classes that highlight the important steps to be considered during the design and implementation of a Framework model.

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.


Observations

The curriculum is based on the most recent version of IBM Cognos 10 Framework Manager, and uses the sample data sources included in the IBM Cognos BI 10.2.1 Samples package. For an even more enriching experience, the course content can be entirely customized to any customers environment, including, but not limited to the tutorials and workshops.

All our instructors are IBM Cognos certified relational data modelers. They also provide the benefit of having up to 15 years of real-world experience.

Our manuals are aimed at self-study.

Lexington, Massachusetts REAL Wedding Workshop

Have you ever wanted to shoot a wedding with an award winning photographer and get his pointers throughout the entire wedding? Have you ever wanted to shoot a real wedding at a venue where award winning photographers shoot? Have you ever wanted to attend a workshop and keep the images to build your own portfolio? Well, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!

The Ceremony and Reception will both be held on a historic battlefield in Lexington, Massachusetts!

Award winning photographer Jason Lanier is combining two of his key areas of expertise, shooting weddings and teaching photographers into 1 amazing workshop. The REAL Wedding Portfolio Building Workshop is your chance to shoot along side Jason, get help with your images, get instructions as the wedding unfolds, and KEEP the images for your own portfolio to show everyone just how awesome you are so you can go and book amazing weddings for yourself.

The wedding is on Saturday June 21st and will be amazing! Jason carefully picks the weddings that he will use for workshops taking into account the ceremony and reception venues as well as insuring that the couple gives him the appropriate amount of time to allow the group to do an amazing couple shoot on the wedding day so he can take full advantage of everything the venues have to offer.

But that's not all! Jason has planned an engagement, bridal getting ready, and bridal shoots the day before the wedding (Friday- Day 1 of the workshop) so you can have a COMPLETE wedding portfolio of the wedding clients for your own marketing purposes.

$100 to register, the remainder due 60 days prior to the workshop!

BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS WORKSHOP CAN BENEFIT ALL SKILL LEVELS. For those who are just starting out this will be incredibly eye opening. For those who have shot weddings and are looking for that next step...THIS. IS. IT.

FAQ's

*Where is the nearest major airport?Boston, MA

*Is there shuttle service provided?No there is not, you will need to rent a car or carpool with someone else that is attending. I try to keep the cost down and the best way to do that is by not making all the travel expenses inclusive in the price because different attendees have different budgets. We will certainly help you if you are looking for someone to bunk up with or for a carpool buddy. The meet up site enables you to send messages to all those who are attending so it's easy to find someone if that's what you're looking for!

*So do I get to use all the images I take at the workshop for my own use...really?Yep! That's the entire concept behind this specific type of workshop. I'm trying to help photographers to pursue their dream of having killer portfolios so they can further their career.

*Do I have to handle my own travel accommodations and expenses?Yes you do. I will inform the group of where I'm staying so they can be close to me if preferred.

*I'm just beginning, will I really get a lot out of this workshop?Yes you will! I truly wish there would have been this type of wedding workshop available when I started because it would have saved me from making so many mistakes in my career.

*I'm a seasoned pro, will this help?Absolutely! Need to spice up your portfolio? Need to get out of the rut? Need an entirely different look and feel for your style and portfolio? This is for you!

*Is there any preparatory information or services provided before the workshop?Yes, Jason will hold online webinars with all paid attendees prior to the workshop to help prepare them for everything they are going to encounter.

*Are there any discounts if I bring a group?Yes there are! Jason will provide a 15% discount for any groups that book together that are 3 people or more.

*What is the maximum amount of people allowed?There will be a cap of 10 attendees to allow everyone time and space to get great shots. Jason has taught workshops for years to groups larger than 10 and is versed in making sure everyone has an opportunity to get great shots and learning experiences.

*Will I get to use the engagement, bridal getting ready, and bridal portrait sessions for my portfolio as well?Yep!

*How will I get a release from the bride and groom?Jason will coordinate a release between all the attendees and the wedding couple prior to the wedding workshop. You will receive a signed copy at the workshop for your records. There is no extra charge for the release.

*Are there any extra fees associated with the workshop that I should know about?Nope! Jason keeps it very simple. Jason's team will be shooting video and documenting the wedding workshop. That video will be made available for purchase after the workshop. You are not required to buy the video but if you want it, it will help you!

Saturday June 7, 2014
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM

For much of the 18th century, map publishing in America was a financially precarious undertaking. The same held true in Boston, where individuals from many walks of life ventured into commercial mapmaking. David Bosse, Librarian and Curator of Maps at Historic Deerfield, explores the work of several Boston mapmakers during this period of ad-hoc publishing in his lecture, Map and Chart Publishing in Boston in the Eighteenth Century, at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library, Saturday, April 12 at 2 pm. This program is part of a series related to the Museum and Librarys collection of historic maps. The lecture is free thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation.

David Bosse is Librarian of Historic Deerfield and the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, and curator of maps at Historic Deerfield. He formerly served as curator of maps at the Clements Library of the University of Michigan, and assistant map curator at the Newberry Library, Chicago. His research on the early American map trade has appeared in Mapping Boston (MIT Press, 1999), the journal Cartographica, and in the online journal, Coordinates. He has a particular interest in account books and what they can tell us about the individuals who kept them and the community they lived in.

8:00 AM until 10:00 AM

In early May we are in the midst of several weeks of migration at Dunback Meadow as many species of birds quickly head north to their breeding grounds as well as the many birds who come to this area to spend the summer. In addition, we may find some of our residential birds, such as woodpeckers and hawks.

Although the ground is slightly rough, the pace is slow so the walk is accessible to most. Children with adults and beginners are welcome. We will enjoy a varied habitat, including mixed woods, open fields, and a stream. Bring binoculars if you have them. Boots are recommended if there has been rain recently. Rain or lightning will cancel the walk.

Meet at the Allen Street entrance to Dunback Meadow.

Building a Healthy Future: Setting Our Goals for the Next Generation
Saturday, May 3rd from 9:30 AM 12:30 PM at Cary Memorial Hall, 1605 Mass. Ave., Lexington, MA

Many Massachusetts communities like Lexington are embarking on their biggest building campaigns in a generation. This is an excellent time to have a conversation about how the next generation of municipal buildings can help us achieve our goals for the next generation of our students, teachers, and public employees. Studies show that buildings with clean and healthy air, lots of natural sunlight, great thermal comfort and moisture control, result in fewer sick days, improved staff productivity, heightened student participation, and even higher test scores! Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) has recently launched the Pathways to Zero Net Energy program to encourage the construction of zero-net energy buildings throughout the Commonwealth.

Weve got an amazing panel: Paul Eldrenkamp, Owner, Byggmeister Sustainable Builder & Chair, 2013 Building Energy Conference?Ellen Watts & Dan Arons, Co-founders Architerra Sustainable design and zero net energy building architects?Ellen Tohn, Tohn Environmental Strategies Nationally recognized expert on indoor air quality & healthy buildings?Tina Halfpenny Director of Energy Efficiency at the Mass Dept. Energy & Environmental Affairs (DOER)

The panel will address these questions:

- What goals should we be considering for the next generation of our buildings?
- How can high performance buildings benefit our health, productivity, and resilience?
- Are zero-net energy and zero-emission buildings possible and affordable in Massachusetts?
- How do we choose the best sustainable building standards for our community?
- What support is available to help our community get started building a healthy future?

Who should attend? Anyone interested in the health, efficiency, and resilience of public buildings in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This workshop is open to the publicregardless of where you live.

Butterfly Walk at Arlington's Great Meadow
Saturday April 19, 2014
10:00 AM until 11:00 AM

This walk will be co-sponsored by Citizens for Lexington Conservation and the Massachusetts Butterfly Club. Butterfly enthusiast Tom Whelan will lead a walk in Arlington's Great Meadow to see two species of spring butterflies, Brown and Henrys Elfins. These small, easily overlooked butterflies are found in many parts of the United States and Canada. Since these species overwinter in the chrysalis stage, their lives as adults begin early in the spring. We also may see Mourning Cloak and Spring Azure butterflies. If time permits, additional insects will be sought at adjacent Infinity Pond, a certified vernal pool.

People of all ages are welcome; children must be with an adult. Please sign up for the walk in advance, preferably by email or phone. Walk Leader Tom Whelan will notify those who sign up if the weather requires cancelling the event.

Participants will meet in the parking lot at Golden Living Center Lexington, at 840 Emerson Gardens Rd. (off Maple Street) in East Lexington. The parking lot is on the right side of the facility, and drivers should park at the far end.
