In order to deliver the best quality services to my clients, it is imperative to successfully complete certification on software products where consulting services are going to be offered. The certification process also helps to ensure that best practices in solution design and implementation are followed.

As well as the initial certification, I ensure that I keep abreast of current software developments, new releases and new functionalities. Being a Cognos services provider, I have access to the Cognos knowledge base, helping to resolve possible issues very quickly.
