Alliance Program

IBM Software Consulting & Support

IBM Cognos TM1, BI and SPSS customers often require some level of post-production support or assistance that exceeds the capabilities of the IBM Support program. Customers are looking to resolve issues that require an understanding of their unique system design, as well as the ability to come on-site when needed. That’s why Aviana now offers the Aviana Alliance Support Program, which allows you to choose one of three service levels and customize it to meet your specific needs. All of the Aviana Alliance packages are designed to maximize the return on investment of your IBM Business Analytics software with an optimized environment, fast support and issue resolution, and continued education for your internal team.
