CAFÉ (also known as IBM Cognos Analysis For Microsoft Excel and Planning Analytics for Excel (PAx)) is an Excel based interface for accessing data which is held within centrally controlled IBM Cognos TM1 cubes as well as IBM Cognos BI packages. This is an in-depth course covering all aspects of CAFÉ focussing on TM1 cubes. This course will teach delegates how to use CAFÉ to design reports on TM1 data in multi-tabbed worksheets and overlay with standard Excel functionality. Delegates will also learn how to create planning forms and use them to write back data into TM1 cubes. From there the data collates within TM1 automatically with the help of multi-dimensional hierarchies. This course also compares CAFÉ to TM1 Perspectives which will appeal to those who are looking to migrate to this tool.
