Cognos Services by NES

NES wants to ensure that your IBM Cognos solution is configured to meet your business goals, and that your investment is maximized. Period. That means making sure you’re neither under- nor over- equipped. Our Service Offerings are designed to do exactly that.

These “packages” are based on our long-term experience with Cognos users. And while we describe these as packages, at the same time, we remain flexible to your exacting needs and project specifications.
We’ve been at this long enough to know that great service has to be tailored and that there is no such thing as one size fits all. Read more about NES Cognos Services Offerings(PDF).
