IBM: Web Services-enable Cognos Business Intelligence Platform
Project: Web Services-enable Next Generation Business Intelligence Software
Services: Software Development
Domains: Web Applications
Situation: IBM (formerly Cognos) is a leader in business intelligence and analytics software, and wanted to support web delivery of BI information in the next generation of its software. The Cognos engineering team was already on a critical path to deliver the next major release.
Solution: Cognos needed software experts that not only had knowledge of web services and server-side technologies, but also knew how to deliver commercial software for the web. Cognos selected Macadamian for our experience helping global ISVs build new products and migrate existing products to new delivery models.
Benefits: Knowing it could rely on a team of experts to develop the wireless and Web support for the next generation product, the Cognos engineering team was able to concentrate on developing the core product for its major release.
"Macadamian offers impressive expertise and experience in the use of XML and other Web technologies. These core competencies will prove highly useful to Cognos as we continue to develop products that meet the BI needs of the entire enterprise."
— Guy Dupuis, Vice President of Product Services, Cognos
