Cognos has bolstered support for its systems integrator channel with two new managerial appointments.
The vendor has announced former Business Objects staffer, Chris Wilkins, as Sydney-based alliance manager for Australia and New Zealand. Industry veteran, Richard Meiklejohn, joins as director of Asia-Pacific alliances and partnerships. He will be based in Singapore.
Integrators were playing an increasingly important role in the business intelligence and corporate performance management vendor's success, according to marketing director, David Merchant.
"Our integrator channel has grown to the point where I can no longer look after marketing while giving them the love and attention they need," he said.
"We had somebody looking after the reseller and consultancy channel but now we needed dedicated staff for our integrators."
