Overview

Top rule

IBM® Planning Analytics is designed to automate manual, spreadsheet-based processes for planning, budgeting, forecasting, reporting, and analysis. Powered by the in-memory, on-line analytical processor engine of IBM TM1®, Planning Analytics helps enable finance teams to perform in-depth, multidimensional analysis. It helps organizations link operational tactics to financial plans and helps deliver insights through visualizations in a dynamic, self-service workspace.

Hybrid entitlement, a new type of subscription, offers the flexibility for you to deploy entitlements as your business requires: on premises as IBM Planning Analytics Local, in the cloud as Planning Analytics, or as a combination of these, up to your total number of purchased entitlements. If you bought, for example, 100 Authorized Users, you can have 100 Authorized Users in your on-premises Planning Analytics Local environment and none for Planning Analytics, or vice versa, or you can split the 100 Authorized Users between the on-premises and cloud service implementations provided the total entitlements in use at any point in time do not exceed the 100 Authorized Users.

With hybrid entitlement, you get access to the Planning Analytics on-premises licensed product along with the ability to access the Planning Analytics cloud service. It provides you with the freedom to respond quickly to the needs of your business through a flexible entitlement model that embraces both deployment types, whether needed to transition from an on-premises deployment to the cloud at your own pace or to be able to use both environments on an on-going basis.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
