Butterfly Walk at Arlingtons Great Meadow
Saturday April 18, 2015
11:00 AM until 12:00 PM

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. This walk will be co-sponsored by Citizens for Lexington Conservation and the Massachusetts Butterfly Club. Butterfly enthusiast Tom Whelan will lead a walk 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 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 (tom@whelanphoto.com) or phone (781-915-9988). Walk Leader, Tom Whelan, will notify those who sign up if the weather requires cancelling the event.

IBM Cognos 10.2.1 Framework Manager Fundamentals and Advanced - Lexington, MA *Guaranteed to Run*

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 process of a Framework model.

IBM Cognos BI Framework Manager Advanced

One of the challenges facing information managers today is the need to inter-relate different sources and types of information. Understanding the structure and architecture of the data make the above-mentioned scenario possible; metadata is the means by which this happens. Whether it is an ERP system or an e-commerce system that needs to exchange data between proprietary applications, IBM Cognos Framework Manager is the correct application for organizing and reporting on inter-related disparate data sources. 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 process of your metadata model.

IBM Cognos 10.2.1 Framework Manager Fundamentals and Advanced - Lexington, MA

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 process of a Framework model.

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