“We commissioned IBT to review the performance of our Data Warehouse and Cognos implementation to improve load times and ready the system for an upgrade to version 10.2. We then asked IBT to continue with the upgrade, as well as redesign some running builds and improve reporting speeds.

Throughout the duration of the project IBT and its principal consultant, Evan Hodge, has helped us extract maximum value from our BI tool. They have helped improve our user’s experience and the subsequent upgrade has proven to be successful and cost effective. IBT exceeded our expectations and we have no hesitation in recommending them.”
