We have a complete offering of worldwide services, phone and web support, and account management designed to make you successful with your Cognos solution and to get you results quickly. The Cognos e-business solution takes you from business requirements, through to technology requirements, through to successful implementation.
  • In the Evaluate phase, a plan is developed to determine and address BI requirements. Ensuring that every aspect of a successful BI project is considered, this phase helps you understand how to attain the best return on your BI investment in as short a time as possible. To design your solution, you should first install the BI software to optimize its performance with your hardware and operating systems. Next, design your BI portal, models, and warehouse to match your business objectives and information requirements. During the Implement phase, the data marts, reports, cubes, portal, and infrastructure agreed to in the Install &amp; Design phase are built. An iterative approach will construct a BI solution that applies experience gained in the initial cycles to reduce project risk and deliver subsequent parts more quickly and cost-effectively. This phase integrates your business intelligence solution—your portal, cubes, reports, and data repository—into your business processes and technical environment. By the end of this phase, your decision-makers and knowledge workers should be fully trained and able to use their new BI solution.
