Filip Draskovic has spent his professional career, which covers the past 11 years, living and breathing IBM Cognos. For the first 8 years of his career, he had been a Cognos consultant and developed his skills applying Cognos Business Intelligence and Planning solutions in multiple industries. Wanting to do something different, he spent the next 3 years as a Cognos trainer teaching public and private IBM Cognos courses in IBM’s offices around North America. Following his desire to constantly gain new experiences and knowledge, he is currently filling the role of a Cognos client technical professional. You can find him today in Toronto’s financial district. At home, together with his wife and son, he is eagerly awaiting the arrival of their second child.
Roger Johnson is a learning consultant on IBM Cognos technologies delivering a wide variety of courses focusing on the needs of his learners. His education experience has been honed over years of work in training software professionals, college students, and many types of technology users. After he started his career as a computer programmer, a co-worker said, “Hey, you do community theater productions. You would make a good trainer.” With those words, his career took a different direction. Over the next 20 years, he never moved too far from either technology or education. As a learner, he has master’s degrees in Systems Management and Education. Currently, he is researching the end-user adoption of technology as his doctoral dissertation at Capella University. He calls Orlando home, but is regularly seen around North America delivering any number of IBM Cognos courses. When he is home, he enjoys the time he gets to spend with family, and his dogs keep him busy jogging around the lake.
