Success or failure in business is a direct result of the decisions we make each and every day. The best way to battle the demands for smart and informed decisions is to arm the people making them with unbiased data that promotes educated decisions.
Every high impact project is best served with a solid strategy, good planning, and a well communicated roadmap. This stage in the execution of a BI project is the difference between a successful rollout and a massive failure. We help you through a proven process.

Our team can help your organization analyze, design, deploy, optimize, and maintain your Cognos Analytics solution, to insure BI is embraced as a tool to support data driven decision making.
With data growing at a staggering rate, the way you get to your data is just as important to overall enterprise adoption, as the data itself. Many businesses rely on an analytics solutions as a central hub for connecting data from multiple applications, databases, servers, and external data sources.
IBM’s Cognos portfolio provides a robust solution to meet the demands across all industries. Many of those industries live outside of the tech space. Companies in agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services want to focus on what they do best, not navigate the waters of a BI implementation. Our understanding of the IBM analytics portfolio coupled with an extensive understanding of the systems that drive it, allow for a smooth and less invasive implementation for the end user.
A data warehouse provides the foundation for Business Intelligence by providing access to the appropriate data in an effective and optimized manner. The two main components of a data warehouse are the design of a robust data model that translates business concepts into a logical, efficient format, alongside the development of effective ETL (Extraction, Transformation & Loading) processes.
Our team of data architects focus on three critical data warehouse activities: implementation, data mart development, and built in audit control.
While we like to think our skills, knowledge, and customer centric focus coupled with IBM’s self-service BI toolset results in an immediate transition for our customers, we understand that there will be a learning curve. We offer group training as well as mentoring, to insure a healthy and seamless adoption within your organization.
Our BI team works closely with our systems engineering group to optimize the way data is manufactured and distributed to the front lines. When you look at the staggering amount of data being generated every day, it’s easy to see the power that can come from these two teams working seamlessly together.
Cognos is impressive as a standalone tool but can blow people’s minds when integrated into existing internal and external facing tools within the business. We help companies customize and integrate their Cognos functionality seamlessly into front line U/I to serve data to the end user where they need it most, the front lines. We integrate Cognos into the bloodstream of your business.
Our team of experts has migrated customers from cumbersome spreadsheet based reporting tools, homegrown analytics packages, and a wide range of competitive BI packages, to the Cognos family of products. Once a company experiences the power of a well-executed BI solution, they typically want more. IBM continually serves “more” in the form of upgrades and enhancements. Our team of experts understand the upgrade process and can assist or execute upgrades for the business.
