We work collaboratively with each client to address information needs and priorities.

Certus is a proven provider of IBM Cognos solutions for budgeting, planning, forecasting and scenario modeling. Our clients use a variety of TM1, Cognos Express, Cognos EP and Contributor. Many solutions are integrated with other areas of the IBM Cognos suite.

IBM planning technologies have evolved at a rapid pace in recent years. Certus can readily support your migration to new technologies. We maintain expertise in earlier technologies and versions, while adapting quickly to the newer technology offerings IBM launches. 

IBM Cognos TM1 is a fully integrated, highly scalable solution for planning, budgeting, and forecasting. It integrates operational and financial planning, providing company-wide visibility into resource requirements and business plans. With TM1 you can access current data to assess fiscal performance, and proceed from "what-is" to evaluate the "what-if" scenarios critical to forecasting future performance.

Certus' consultants understand the full range of technologies available and can help you plan, then deliver solutions for diverse business requirements.

Certus provides you with planning models as simple as consolidated financial plans, or as complex as globally deployed enterprise-wide budgets. Forecasts driven by operational planning models in multiple companies and currencies are also available. These solutions can be centrally controlled or provide for distributed data entry.

Whether custom built or based on industry blueprints, Certus' planning models, are used by clients across the industry spectrum, from manufacturing and government, to insurance and education, and work in departmental operations such as finance, operations, HR, sales and marketing.
