Deploying Cisco Unified Intelligence Center

Alert Me


Deploying Cisco Unified Intelligence Center Plus (DUIC+) is an Implementation and Administration course focusing on the CUIC reporting solution for Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE), Packaged Contact Center Enterprise (PCCE) and Customer Voice Portal (CVP) environments.

CUIC is a comprehensive, end-to-end UCCE/PCCE reporting solution, designed to make the task of creating reports and managing disparate data sources, easier on the customer. Although CUIC is also used in the UCCX environment, this course focuses on UCCE and PCCE environments only.

The 3 day instructor led course for CUIC combines the Cisco DUIC course with our own 100+ page `Addendum of CUIC Goodness` as reference material you will use and take home with you. Most of your time will be spent working in the lab environment which includes a live functional UCCE/CVP environment deployed with CUIC as the reporting solution. During this 3 day class, we`ll keep you busy wearing multiple hats including architect, administrator, supervisor, agent and report customization specialist. Don`t discount the need to know some of these roles, regardless of your role! The true way to make you better at your job is to broaden your horizon of knowledge, and knowing how all of these roles interact will ensure your success with the product.

  1. Architecture. Here we`ll spend a bit of time discussing the big picture of how CUIC fits into your environment – which components of UCCE/PCCE communicate with CUIC and why you care. Product licensing and deployment models are major topics in this lesson. Also relevant is how your scripting decisions will affect reporting. Many a customer has been surprised in this section to learn that they have more than 1 CUIC server in their environment.
  2. Database Integration. CUIC integrates with CCE (ICM) data sources, and can also be configured to integrate with other data sources, most typically CVP. This may already be obvious to you, but what you may not know if the myriad other settings and configuration options which may affect reporting events from the Gateway all the way thru ICM. Knowing practical tools and methods to find database schema information is a key topic in this section.
  3. Security. We`ll convince you that it`s wise to spend some time up front understanding user/group/role permissions and security before you start importing and customizing reports. We`ll assume you want a flexible reporting solution to meet each customer`s independent needs without maintaining an administrative security nightmare as a foundation for this lesson.
  4. Importing reports. By default, CUIC comes with very few reports – even the `stock` reports are imported. You`ll need to know where to go to download new/updated reports for your environment. You`ll also want to know how to easily import these reports into your solution. This topic will also serve as the beginning of your light bulb illumination regarding Report Definitions, Value Lists and Collections.
  5. Active Directory Integration. Now that you`ve got your datasources configured, your reports imported, and your security figured out, it`s time for some Active Directory integration. If you follow our guidelines, you can now allow the automagic replication of your Supervisors into CUIC from Active Directory. If done right, this allows your supervisors to log on to CUIC with a standard ability to run reports and create dashboards, all without any replication of these users on your part with CUIC. We`ll show you other tricks to get your other administrative users added to CUIC.
  6. Customizing reports. Regardless of how cool you made the report, someone will want to adjust its appearance to their own liking. Knowing you cannot modify the `stock` reports, you`ll use your security knowledge to create a report repository where the right people will have an ability to customize their report. If you`ve ever wanted to create a default view of a report, a new report view (grid, chart, gauge), adjust a report column name or format, set a threshold or understand what a permalink is, you`ll want to know how to customize a report. In this topic we`ll continue the understanding of Value Lists and Collections, but not be done. This topic will usually promote a need to understand Report Definitions.
  7. Customizing Report Definitions. This area distinguishes the standard from the premium licensed customer, and is an area of extreme power. This topic is where most other topics come together as one unit. This topic includes query types, fields, parameters, drilldowns and footers. We`ll also fully illuminate your Value List and Collection light bulb in this lesson. We`ll also teach you a neat trick useful for decoupling/recoupling your custom report from/with this new report definition. This is also the only part of the course which will test your SQL knowledge, or lack thereof.
  8. Other. A better name than junk-drawer, this subject includes other useful yet easily consumable topics such as Dashboards, Scheduling Reports, Exporting report data, permalinks, pop-outs…
