The QueBIT Collaborative and Rapid Enablement Implementation Methodology (CARE) is a unique approach to implementing IBM Cognos Software that maximizes the success of projects and empowers the end client to “own” both the solution and the technology at the end of the very first project. This achieves the lowest true cost of ownership of IBM Cognos Software for customers. True cost of ownership along with real return on investment are the two most important factors when prospective customers choose to select IBM Cognos over competing solutions that require significant incremental short term and longer term implementation costs, as compared to implementation projects managed using QueBIT’s CARE methodology.
CARE requires client developers and administrators to work side by side with the QueBIT implementation team to achieve successful knowledge transfer throughout and at the end of the project. This the primary value proposition for selecting QueBIT for implementation projects. QueBIT has built a reputation centered on complete excellence and expertise, and the transfer of this knowledge to clients to empower them to be as self-serving as desired. It is QueBIT’s goal to establish long term relationships with clients but it is not our goal to establish a relationship of dependency. QueBIT’s most successful relationships and projects are those where the client embraces the intention of skills transfers and provides appropriate resources to work alongside the QueBIT team during the first phase implementation, and by doing so, achieve a successful transfer of knowledge from the QueBIT experts to the client administrators and developers. This results in potentially significant lower short term implementation costs, and much lower long term true costs of ownership. When clients are empowered to own the technology that they have invested in, they also tend to achieve much greater returns on their investment: the use of the technology becomes all pervasive throughout the organization; many more different types of business problems get solved; employees are much happier because they are far more productive; and the business benefits from better top and bottom line performance.
