I wanted to share a new book that just came out for any Cognos users out there. It is the first user guide for Cognos 8. It is called Cognos 8 BI for Consumers: A Step-by-Step Introductory Guide to Cognos Connection. The book is a step-by-step introductory guide to Cognos Connection, which is the standard portal to Cognos 8 BI. The guide concentrates on the basics and fundamentals for users at all levels.
As a user of Cognos, I have found it invaluable when using the program. Before all I had been using was the manual that came with the program but this is much more indepth and descriptive and allows me to use all components of the program.
I would definitely recommend it for anyone who works in BI.
