Training

 

Training is one of EKS&H’s signature business technology service offerings. We offer fully customized Tableau Desktop, Tableau Web Authoring, Tableau Prep, Microsoft Power BI, and a full suite of IBM Cognos Analytics training courses to organizations, delivered at your location. EKS&H delivers a training experience that empowers users to start analyzing their data with Tableau, IBM Cognos, and Microsoft Power BI the day after class. 

Why Choose EKS&H for Your Business Technology Training?

Our training offerings are built on years of adult education experience. We specialize in business intelligence (BI) training for beginning and intermediate users. In addition, we perform workshops for more advanced users of performance management and data integration tools.

Our training team works directly with your data sources instead of generic sample data sets. This optimizes the trainees’ time and further advances the business initiatives they support. Our training includes relevant practical tips rather than generic explanations of out-of-the-box functionality.

Every class concludes with an anonymous course evaluation of what worked and what did not. Our students’ number one comment is, “being trained with data that is relevant to OUR work was fantastic!” After class, we also take time to address and follow up on “parking lot” questions that might have been out of scope or require more research.

Our training services include:
  • Fully customized, task-based courses in IBM Cognos Analytics, Tableau, and Microsoft Power BI
  • Training needs analysis and planning
  • Recommendations for delivery options (e.g., instructor-led training, step-by-step exercises, a training database, job aids, online videos, and user guides)
  • Design and development of customized software training materials
  • Training delivery
  • Train-the-trainer support
  • Training program assessment, management, and development services

The project was delivered in an exceptional manner. From the planning to the execution to the close, all work was performed in a superior and professional manner. The EKS&H team was a pleasure to work with. Communication was timely and open, and all individuals associated with the project felt extremely engaged. The results of the project (a university fact book) will increase recruiting opportunities, provide a better experience for prospective students, and be a time saver because it replaces manual processes. We look forward to working with EKS&H again in the future. Kent Corder
