What do I need to do before the training starts?

To get the most from TM1 developer training, you will need to synchronize the development box and live box containing an instance of TM1 before the TM1 developer training can commence. Thereafter, you need to provide us read-only access to perform the training. If you do not have access to a training environment, please let us know at the time of booking and we will provide a training environment.

How many can attend?

Each session can host a maximum of three attendees. You will need to provide the company with the names, email addresses, and mobile phone numbers of each attendee.

Who will deliver the training?

We will assign one or more competent person to deliver TM1 Developer Training. Trainers are Certified TM1 developers with a minimum of 10 years commercial experience deploying IBM Cognos TM1 and five years training TM1 developers.

What days and times can we have the training delivered?

Meetings and training sessions are conducted online from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). No additional work or preparation is required from attendees outside of these times.

Special allowances are made for sessions delivered in time zones outside of Asia Pacific. TM1 developer training can be provided onsite. Additional costs for hotel accommodation and transfer apply.

On what version of PAW and PAX will be demonstrated?

Training will be conducted in the version of IBM Planning Analytics in the client environment. If using Octane environment, then it would be conducted on the version installed on our training server (expect it to be the latest version available at the time)

Will you be providing any training manuals?

Yes. Every attendee will receive soft copy note after the classes are completed.

Do I need to have PAX installed on my machine?

Yes, if you have PAX on your machine then we will provide the URL to connect to our demo instance. If you don’t have PAX on your machine then we will provide the install files and someone from your IT team can install them for you.

What are the pre-requisites to joining these courses?

A basic knowledge of TM1 cubes.
