Hosted provider recommendations
« on: 09 Jan 2017 08:48:24 am »
Hi all, I am a regular user but I'm posting under an alias so the post remains anonymous!

We are looking to change our hosted services provider so I am looking for recommendations of UK based companies that can support and/or host our BI/TM1 environments. We are currently on v10.1.1 for both products but we will be upgrading very soon.

If you have a recommendation for a company please let me know by posting their details on here.

Hi,

Depending on your needs, it's possible you might be able to switch from "on-prem" licenses to SAAS (Software as a Service) licenses with IBM? In this situation, you would pay IBM an annual subscription for your licenses and they would provision, maintain and upgrade your Cognos and TM1 (Planning Analytics). I believe IBM have a "Bridge to Cloud" scheme currently that offers good incentives. It's worth asking your IBM account manager, I'd suggest :)

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

That's great, thanks very much. We've got a call lined up with IBM on Friday so I'll discuss this with him.

Might also be worth reaching out to Avnet (BSP, who host this site, are part of Avnet). I think they offer hosting services in the UK - possibly Bracknell?

One other thought is Assimil8. I'm pretty sure they offer hosting using IBM Softlayer. They are based near Nottingham.

Cheers!

Meep!

Hi There,

This sounds like something Triangle Information Management could help with: https://triangleinformationmanagement.com/

We would love to set up a call with you to discuss your TM1 and BI.

Email me charlie.fox@triangle-bpm.com so we can set something up.

Thanks,

Charlie
