IBM Cognos TM1 Review

5

TM1 is one of the best business application development platforms

Amazing performance because of in-memory OLAP engine. It's easy to setup and highly scalable. The UI is not pretty and the learning curve can be pretty steep. It's an expensive system, but the ROI can be great with the right team.
