At element61 we always strive to provide the customer with a best of breed implementation according to the needs, timeline and budget of that customer and industry best practices.
This in combination with the fact that the knowledge of element61 isnt limited to the products of one vendor, thanks to our different BI Competence Centers, makes it possible for element61 to advice on and successfully execute mixed technology implementations. We are thus not necessarily just following the "stack" logic of the software vendors, but where it makes sense we also can support "best of breed" implementations.
element61 successfully implemented at customers the combination Microsoft and IBM Cognos and/or Business Objects (both Business Intelligence and BPC). Choices are made to use several solution stacks based on a detailed analysis of customer needs and taking into account required functionality & willingness to invest in front-end technologies. This also makes us a partner of choice in case there are configuration, installation or performance problems in these mixed environments.
