Synergy Business Intelligence (Synergy BI) has been named Cognos Reseller Partner of the Year for the second year running. The award was presented to the company at the annual Cognos Partner Summit held in Las Vegas last month.

David McWilliam, Cognos South Africa MD, notes that with continued rapid development of BI technology, SBI has demonstrated its flexibility and ability to address market needs over its 30-year history.
"Synergy has kept pace with needs of their clients in being able to design and implement BI and Performance Management solutions which are strategic to the enterprise and not only for enthusiastic managers or departments – thus responding to an Information Agenda for the enterprise," he says.
Synergy BI MD Christo Bredenkamp says the company’s focus on Cognos as the technology provider for the BI solutions it takes to market continues to reap dividends. “I can say with confidence that the decision to make Cognos part of our business from its earliest days was a great one.
“Now an IBM company, Cognos has proven itself as an innovative, leading-edge business. As a result, SBI and our customers have been on the receiving end of significant technological breakthroughs over the years. We certainly have intentions to continue with this partnership for many years to come,” he says.
