Sep 10, 2007 (10:09 AM EDT)


EDISON, N.J., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Niteo Partners, an NEC Company, announced today that customer demand for Conversion and Migration services is growing in strategic importance. Recently Niteo has been recognized by Cognos with both the "North American Services Partner of the Year Award" and the "Platinum Partner Award" for its role in Cognos' ongoing solutions and sales success in North America. Niteo is also the only "Preferred Partner for Cognos Conversion Services."

Niteo Partners provides two powerful dual-shore options to help companies standardize on Cognos 8.2:

-- Conversion Services allow customers to standardize from different platforms to Cognos. -- Migration Services allow customers to efficiently move from earlier versions of Cognos to the latest release.

Both offerings include a free estimate service followed by a detailed application audit and proven delivery methodology that utilizes a dual shore model for faster results at a lower cost. The service also includes opportunities to leverage the latest functionality in Cognos 8 for BI and EP to reduce the total number of reports to be converted.

"Niteo has seen a spike in customer demand and priority regarding conversion and migration services to Cognos 8.2 for 2007 and well into 2008. Standardization has become a strategic first step to efficiently introduce enterprise dashboard, performance management, and enterprise planning initiatives and reduce the cost of operations" noted Frank Bianchi, Senior Vice President of Client Services, Niteo Partners. "Our dual shore delivery ensures successful and cost-effective migration to the latest Cognos platform which enables the rollout of customized application functionality across the enterprise. This is combined with business process optimization -- measured by dashboards and scorecards -- to achieve targeted performance benefits."
