Business Challenge story

Pabst Brewing needed to effectively manage cost and predictive insights for reliable forecasts.


Pabst deployed IBM Cognos TM1 for planning and reporting across the enterprise. Doing so they have gained operational efficiency with faster and better decision making. And with IBM SPSS doing the predictive insight for reliable forecasts, Pabst can now see the business profitability at a brand and SKU level, enabling better decisions.


1) Two weeks to produce forecasts that previously took up to three months to generate; 2) 80% of staff time is now focused on value-added analysis, compared with 20% previously.
