Registration & Refreshments


Welcome & Introduction: Mike O’Regan, Sales & Marketing Director @ ProStrategy Colman:


Introducing IBM Cognos: John Coleman, Managing Director @ ProStrategy Colman:

John will introduce the Cognos Business Analytics Suite of software and will outline how the software can be used at a personal level to gain insights on your data and to develop what-if scenarios. We will show how you can easily share these insights with other people in your organisation, in the form of reports, analysis and planning/forecasting applications. The presentation will explain and show practical examples of how we have helped our existing customers to tackle typical business issues such as:


  • Understanding how changes in costs, currencies or the introduction of promotions will impact future margins by creating what-if scenarios.
  • Providing relevant and flexible reporting packs to management teams that provide the appropriate level of information but with easy access to drill through to more detail, if required.
  • Discovering how the business is performing against Last Year, Budget or Forecast. Easily identify poor or excellent performers and how to build interactive dashboards quickly.
      ** All attendees will receive a complimentary licence of Cognos Insight.**


Introducing IBM’s Cast Iron Solution: Paul Davey, Client Technical Advisor @ IBM Ireland.   As more applications reside in the cloud, organisations require to integrate or synchronise their cloud based data with on-premise applications.  Paul will outline how IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud Integration enables companies to integrate applications, regardless of whether the applications are located on-premise or in public or private clouds. Cast Iron contains many built-in connectors to applications (for example SAP, Sales Force, MS Dynamics), databases, and web services that enable integration projects to be delivered   in days using a “configuration, not coding” approach.
