Revelwood Becomes First IBM Partner Worldwide to Achieve IBM Cognos TM1 Gold Accreditation

Latest Honor Builds on Years of Earning Prestigious Recognition From IBM

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2013) - Revelwood, an IBM Premier Business Partner and leader in designing and implementing IBM Business Analytics applications, announced today it is the first IBM Business Partner worldwide to earn IBM Cognos TM1 Gold Accreditation. The company achieved this by working with hundreds of clients on successful IBM Cognos TM1 performance management and analytics applications.

"Revelwood is one of IBM's longest standing partners working with Cognos TM1," said Mark Enslin, Business Analytics Accreditation Program Manager, IBM. "This accreditation is a testament to the depth and breadth of Revelwood's knowledge in helping their clients make the best use of IBM Cognos TM1 -- which translates into better decision making and measurable business benefits."

The IBM Cognos TM1 Gold Accreditation is part of IBM's Software Practice Accelerator, which was launched in early 2013. This program is designed for IBM Business Partners to accelerate and enhance their ability to successfully implement solutions which leverage IBM Software. In order to earn this accreditation, Revelwood had to have 15 practitioners certified on various aspects of Cognos TM1 and had IBM review and validate a cross-section of successful Cognos TM1 deployments Revelwood has delivered to their customers.

"This achievement is directly related to our stringent requirements for Revelwood consultants to have in-depth and hands-on knowledge of Cognos TM1," said Ken Wolf, President and CEO, Revelwood. "The average length of time our consultants have been using Cognos TM1 is 11 years. This deep experience is why Revelwood is able to deliver outstanding performance management and business analytics applications on-time and within budget."
