What We Do

We are a leading provider of Financial Performance Management Solutions powered by IBM Analytics.

We supply software licences on behalf of IBM, and deliver expert consultancy services, training, project management and technical support for the complete IBM Cognos suite.

We help our customers to transform the way they make decisions by analysing what their business data is telling them. 

We work with customers of all sizes and from all industries, helping them to deliver financial reporting, business analytics, planning and performance management solutions using IBM Cognos software.

Our team of consultants invest time in really listening to our customers to make sure they fully understand what challenges they are facing. Once we understand the problem, we work to develop and successfully deliver a solution that fits the bill. 

We help our customers throughout the entire implementation phase and beyond. Our level of involvement is your choice, but our experienced team can work with your team to design the optimum solution, advise on the technical environment, install the software, build the solution, deliver training, and provide support for your live solution.

Our approach

We deliver solutions that are owned by our customers, enabling them to be self-sufficient, and not reliant on external skills. We can and do provide all the development resources required by any project, but our preferred approach is one of trusted advisor and mentor, which reduces the level of consultancy cost and enhances the skills transfer process.

Whichever approach is taken, we always insist on simple designs and that our customers acquire the skills to enable them to take full ownership of their solution.

“If the solution is more complex than the problem, it’s not the right solution”

Aramar’s distinctive strength is the ability to provide IBM Cognos consultancy services across all disciplines of Financial Performance Management. We have a real depth of financial knowledge and experience, and we recognise that Performance Management is often, but not always, driven by the finance department. Our breadth of experience enables us to deliver solutions that benefit all aspects of an organisation, from Procurement through to Operational, HR and Commercial. We understand that effective Financial Performance Management means not only control of the financial close process, but also control of and insight into the operations that drive financial results.

“We understand Finance, but are not trapped in the Accounts department”
