IBM Planning Analytics Upgrade
Introducing QueBIT’s Planning Analytics upgrade services
IBM has announced that IBM Cognos TM1 10.2.x will no longer be supported after September 30, 2019. It is over a year away, and there is still time to plan your upgrade to its rebranded successor, IBM Planning Analytics.
Whether you just want to upgrade your current TM1 functionality to stay on a supported version, or unlock the full power and potential of the new Planning Analytics components, contact our team of experts now.
Why should you upgrade from IBM Cognos TM1 to IBM Planning Analytics?
In addition to making sure that you are running your critical applications on an IBM supported version of the software, there are several reasons to upgrade, including:
- Improved feeder processing times (with multi-threaded feeders)
- The new Planning Analytics for Excel (“PAx”) add-in which performs well over a wide area network, removing the need to maintain licenses and infrastructure for remote access software such as Citrix, while also offering a fresh and modern end-user experience.
- The ability to compare Sandboxes, used for playing multiple private what-if games
Furthermore, it gives you the option of adding the new Planning Analytics Workspace (“PAW”) component which provides a rich end user experience and advanced visualizations from a web browser. Note that if you purchased TM1 before Planning Analytics was released, only Modeler (“admin”) license users are entitled to use Planning Analytics Workspace.
Please contact QueBIT for pricing to add PAW licenses for your broader user community.
