System Administration as a Service

Revelwood’s System Administration as a Service (SAaaS) offering provides administration services for your IBM Cognos TM1/Planning Analytics operation. Tap into our many years of experience, staff expertise and managed services infrastructure to free your team up from the labors of TM1 administration. We can handle your general and cycle maintenance needs and provide expert help desk support services.

Our SAaaS offering comes in two forms:

Fully Outsourced Coverage

We’ll act as your “pilot” and take over your entire administration function. We’ll be responsible for ensuring that your business cycles are managed from start to finish, and that your TM1 environment is running in top condition and keeping up with changes in your business.


  • Reduce your SG&A expense
  • Reduce headcount while increasing service levels
  • Allow you to focus on your business and core competencies
  • You don’t need to keep abreast of all the changes, patches, and updates from IBM
  • Uninterrupted service; no need to plan around vacations or unexpected absences
  • Revelwood becomes your strategic partner

Backup/Supplemental Coverage

You’re the pilot, we’re the co-pilot. You run the administration and rely on us to be there when you need us. Whether you need an extra set of hands during your busy season or someone to take over in your absence, we’ll be there to jump in and help. It’s like an insurance policy to make sure you are always up and running and not falling behind.


  • Support provided by our expert technical staff when you need it
  • We can augment your internal staff and fill any skill or knowledge gaps
  • Continuity of business processes
  • Free your part-time admin to allow them to focus on their primary role
  • Gain incremental assistance without incremental headcount
  • Never stay up late again wondering what you will do if you lose your System Admin

Either option gives you access to highly qualified Revelwood staff whose sole purpose is to ensure your TM1 application runs smoothly. And, as always, we speak business first, so that your business needs are what drives the technology, not the other way around.
