Solution Planning Services

Before a project begins, AuroPro's Cognos Professional Services works with you to explore and understand your business requirements and expectations. Through a number of initiatives, we partner with you to refine the planning process so you achieve the best results from your AuroPro's Cognos solution:

  • Discovery and Validation Workshop. In this workshop, we help you document your business and technical goals and challenges, and chart a roadmap for project success. We also help to articulate and share your strategy with stakeholders to build support for your project.
  • Scoping and Planning Service. AuroPro's Cognos Client Management, supported by expert architects and project managers, assist you in defining your projects. The Scoping and Planning Service provides you with project initiation deliverables, including the project charter, project success plan, timeline, and resource estimate. This enables a smooth transition to the design, build and deployment phases of your implementation.
  • Rapid Scorecard Service. Transform your business strategy into action with this scorecarding workshop. Our consultants work with you to highlight your strategic objectives, identify key indicators and measures, and set up a pilot scorecard to monitor results.
  • Migration and Conversion Rapid Assessment Services. AuroPro's Cognos Consulting helps you determine the requirements of your migration and conversion projects. We first conduct a rapid audit to assess your existing infrastructure, architecture, performance, and capacity. We then deliver a project plan for the migration or conversion process—to make the best use of existing resources, mitigate risk, and ensure successful results.
  • Data Quality Rapid Assessment Service. Your performance management initiatives depend on quality data. This five-day service focuses on data quality issues that may affect the success of your performance management project. It will uncover the data quality issues that need to be addressed; sets a baseline for ongoing data quality strategy; helps reduce project risk from poor data quality; and educates business leads on data quality and shows them how to improve it.

Solutions Inplementation Services

When it comes time to implement your software project, AuroPro's Cognos Professional Services offers three levels of service based on the requirements of your business. In each case, the AuroPro's Cognos Solutions Implementation Methodology (SIM) is used to manage the implementation.

  • Project Services. Using the AuroPro's Cognos SIM, we manage or co-manage with you the complete software development lifecycle. The comprehensive service can cover everything from analysis to deployment and operation. We become an integral part of your team, and share accountability for quality of the deliverables and project success—whether it's a single department project or a complex enterprise deployment. This can include first-time implementations of AuroPro's Cognos or migration projects that take advantage of the latest AuroPro's Cognos offerings. These services can also leverage our offshore capabilities.
  • Guardian Services. If you've chosen to do the majority of work yourself or if you've enlisted the services of aAuroPro's Cognos partner or other third party, our consulting team works alongside to proactively manage your implementation. Guardian Services provide a framework for a multi-party engagement, allowing you to leverage both partner and AuroPro's Cognos expertise to maximize service value and project delivery. The Guardian framework provides proactive assistance at critical checkpoints during an implementation, along with technology and application expertise.
  • Assist Services. You may want to own your software project for its entire lifecycle. In this case, AuroPro's Cognos Professional Services can provide discrete service packages to assist you during the process (e.g., security review, capacity planning, performance tuning, model and report optimization). By bringing in additional AuroPro's Cognos resources, you can leverage specific expertise at the right time to help augment your project team and to ensure your project success.

Business Improvement Services

With a AuroPro's Cognos solution in place, we can help you target opportunities to further extend your investment—to align with new or evolving business strategies or take advantage of new capabilities.

Management Services. Based on your unique strategy and needs, and overlaying known areas of importance, we work with you to target potential areas of high return. For example, you can extend an application that delivers sales results to one that provides planning and variance analysis.

  • BICC Services. A key strategy for extending solutions is the development of a central competency area. Business intelligence competency centers (BICCs) have proven to be one of the best ways to drive the strategic rollout of BI across an organization.

Using a combination of practice aids, methodologies, tools, and technology, AuroPro's Cognos Professional Services guides you through the process of establishing a BICC in your organization.
