As Watts’ IT team worked with an end-of-life IBM Cognos BI 8.x implementation, they knew they needed a partner to help them install and migrate to a Cognos BI version better suited to a more robust environment. They contacted Ironside, and both companies quickly saw the opportunity to form a larger partnership to streamline the data management systems behind the reporting tools.
Ironside Managed Services partnered with Watts to help them maximize their data and analytics potential, while minimizing the time spent maintaining and troubleshooting the back-end components required to get there. In addition to the Cognos BI upgrade, the following projects were undertaken:
Install IBM InfoSphere Information Server
Upgrade InfoSphere as Environment Evolves
Enhance New Cognos BI System
Improve Reporting and Dashboards
