IBM has tied up with Kerala University to impart a course on IBM Cognos Solution that will help students analyse data in a business context.

 This will help the students in getting a quick insight and understand any organisation’s performance and trends.

The solution will be included in the curriculum of the Department of Future Studies, Kerala University.

 The course, focused on IBM Cognos Express, will help the students understand the integrated business intelligence and planning solution for midsize companies. The express solution delivers all the essential reporting, analysis, dashboard and planning capabilities that midsize companies need at a price they can afford.

 IBM is the only vendor to offer integrated reporting, analysis and planning in one solution purpose-built for midsize companies and with room to grow all on the same platform. IBM will also provide support in the practical hands-on training in Cognos, to complement the theoretical teaching as part of the curriculum.

 Manoj Changat, head, Department of Futures Studies, said that the course is structured in a manner where students are trained in both the theoretical and practical aspects and this in turn increases their employability in the industry. ‘’We look forward to a long-term relationship with IBM,’’ he said.

 IBM is partnering with local colleges and universities as part  of its global academic programme to help teach students the information technology skills that they need to be competitive in the workplace, said Jyothi Satyanathan, director, Mid-market and Inside Sales, IBM India.
