Innovative Consulting means each project will experience a fresh approach because no two projects are the same
Cortell provides highly qualified consultants for your IBM Cognos implementation.
Our senior consultants have 7 - 15 years consulting experience and a minimum of 4 years IBM Cognos experience. They are also successful finance and business professionals, with post graduate CPAs, holding MBAs and the like. These are the consultants who will challenge you during design phases to ensure best practice techniques are adopted. They are exceptional people.
Services include, but are not limited to...
- conducting and facilitating workshops
- conducting and facilitating seminars or industry trends
- uniquely understanding requirements
- identifying project plans, resources, risks and deliverables
- training and post implementation support.
The Consulting you will experience with Cortell encompasses the sole design and development of an exclusive solution while working closely with your team.
We know that the success of your project relies on the success of our best practice project management methodology. As such, we are flexible enough to adapt to your processes or if you prefer, we are able to provide a one of a kind consulting engagement to suit your environment.
Our delivery experience is the result of over 850 successful implementations, as well as Cortell Australia collectively have over 80 years hands-on experience to bring to your project. We leverage this experience with knowledge management systems, peer reviews and fortnightly internal workflow reviews of each Cortell project, thus providing to you a distinctive Consulting experience.
Goal - to immediately create ROI - via results
Your investment in IBM Cognos and SPSS software, coupled with Cortell's accreditied consulting will drive a rapid return on your investment through improved efficiency and effectiveness.
Our approach is to work with you and your team to immediately create ROI on the initial engagement. We develop a solid relationship with your stakeholders and create a roadmap for additional applications that drive value creation within your business strategies.
We believe the best approach is to initially identify many opportunities for value creation but to start on something small that still adds significant business value.
In other engagements we start by identifying your organisation’s biggest and highest priority challenges to kick off the initiative ... where any or all of IBM Cognos capabilities like Business Performance Management (TM1), Business Intelligence (Cognos 10 and Express) or Advanced Business Analytics (SPSS) will have the greatest impact.
We explore problems like the daily battle with the data you require to support your specific business function. The collation, calculation, analysis and management of data to feed the corporate decision making process often becomes a labour intensive process that is:
- prone to errors
- single man dependent
- over complicated with Excel spreadsheet reliance
- isolated from other core business processes.
The Cortell team will help you fast track the initial engagement. We have a wealth of IP developed in conjunction with our customers that we leverage to create quick wins. In all cases we kick off these initiatives in a highly agile manner, moving rapidly from advanced prototyping to Proof of Concepts with your business stakeholders. Once we have substantiated the business value together, we help you build a business case for a full implementation.
When these capabilities do extend beyond tactical deployments to a broader-based solution, a managed, predictable approach is needed. The Cortell team will help you build Centre of Excellence (COE) areas to support Business Performance Management, Business Intelligence and Advanced Business Analytics.
Our primary goal and promise is to make your organisation self sufficient moving forward, calling on the Cortell team only when consulting is required.
