In the volatile business environment, organizations need speed, agility, and foresight in their financial and operational performance management. IBM® Planning Analytics delivers on all three.

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

This powerful planning and analysis offering is designed to help you to:

  • Create timely, reliable plans, budgets, and forecasts.
  • Perform in-depth, what-if scenario analysis to test assumptions and compare alternatives.
  • Build multidimensional models to analyze profitability by product, customer, region, and more.
  • Communicate insights with compelling, self-service visualizations.
  • Collaborate and integrate plans across finance, sales, supply chain, operations, human resources, and more.

Planning Analytics users now have more flexibility in deploying the TM1 database tier with new memory (RAM) options to support usage, the number of users, and the scale of the solution. Organizations can choose to upgrade their standard configuration of 64 GB memory for the TM1 database tier to 128 GB memory without investing in a Premium Instance. Additionally, organizations that require even greater capacity and scale can now take advantage of 1 TB and 2 TB memory upgrades to Premium Instances.

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.
