Utilising our extensive network within the IBM Cognos community, Whitebridge has built a pioneering model creating a network of independent niche subject matter expert consultants covering all aspects of any IBM Cognos based solution. The key aspect of this model is the close working relationship which has existed over time and the formalising of this in the form of the Whitebridge Partner Network.
