This course is an intermediate course designed to teach Collaboration and Deployment users object and asset management, security, shared resource usage, automation, and interaction with IBM SPSS Modeler Gold. Students focus on the makeup of the content repository and its objects. They will learn how to manage repository objects, the logical hierarchy structure, and how to import, export, and promote objects for use in multi-repository environments. Students will become familiar with the components of jobs and the mechanisms to set up, order, and relate job steps. Scheduling, parameters, job monitoring, job history, and event notification are discussed. Finally, the role of Collaboration and Deployment Services in Modeler Gold is discussed, addressing Real Time Scoring, Analytic Data View, and Model Management.


This course is intended for IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services users who access the content repository in their day-to-day tasks, personnel who create, manage, and secure analytical assets and run jobs within an organization, and IBM SPSS Modeler Gold users who access and operate the different components of Modeler Gold.


There are no prerequisites for this course but it is helpful if you have some familiarity models and stream files from IBM SPSS Modeler as well as a familiarity with typical business requirements from a business analytics environment.
