Can you provide me with couple of specific examples where BlueALLIANCE services will come in handy?

  • 24/7 Business Analytics (BA) Support:
    • You have a IBM Cognos Powercube failure at 1:45 AM EST. When it’s 1:45 AM in the U.S, it’s 8:45 AM in our offshore office in Turkey. Since your coverage includes both local and offshore support, you are covered. Before the 7:30 AM report goes out, our offshore team has 6 hours to address and resolve this failure, well before any escalation takes place within your own IT Team.
  • Proactive Business Analytics (BA) Support:
    • An IBM Cognos job failure occurs at 6:30 AM, affecting the distribution of a very important month-end report to hundreds of business users. No worries! You’re covered. Our BlueSPACE monitoring software will immediately notify our support team via an event-triggered control report to highlight the issue at the time of its occurrence, allowing them to proactively respond to it.
  • Business Analytics (BA) Maintenance:
    • IBM introduces a new FixPack that addresses some known issues with your IBM Cognos Business Analytics (BA) Software. You’re covered! Our BlueALLIANCE service includes hotfix, fixpack and MR release patching as part of its overall coverage.
  • Business Analytics (BA) Development:
    • Your Sales Department needs 2 new IBM-Cognos reports to be developed using ReportStudio. No worries! Our dedicated Business Analytics (BA) Development Team at our offshore development center in Izmir can quickly create these reports in a cost-effective manner.

  • Unlike other Managed Service Providers (MSP), BlueNET values the quality of our services according to the duration of the alliance we establish with our existing customers.
    • We have had customers under this program for more than 10 years.
    • We have customers in these programs from verticals including Logistics, Retail, Health Care, Financial Services, Banking, and Energy.
    • We would be happy to have our customers to speak to you regarding the value of BlueALLIANCE.
  • Unlike many other Managed Service Providers (MSP), BlueALLIANCE is not an idea – it is a tangible service offering with a unique infrastructure, dedicated staff, SLAs and a Help Desk organization solely dedicated to providing Managed Business Analytics (BA) Services.
