IBM Planning Analytics

TM1 is first and foremost an analytical tool which lends itself very well to budgeting, forecasting, what-if analysis and model design flexibility.Often times, users not familiar with analytical concepts view the tool as little more than another data source to extract data into MS Excel or MS Access to "rotate the cube". What they fail to realize is that TM1 is already a cube environment with Excel interfaces available as well as report publishing on the web and other capabilities.

It is well suited in a geographically distributed environment where you have various key participants in multiple time zones providing input and necessary explanations on performance and measured successIt is less appropriate where you have a single office environment with a single finance department working together.It is also less suited when the GL is NOT an Oracle product and the interface between the GL and the reporting software needs to be implemented with utmost care and handling.

Oracle EPM Cloud

  • Task Lists open to all in simplified view even though security is assigned.
  • Would like to see an easy way to upload application security from a flat file.
  • Simplified view is good for users, but would prefer the administrators to be able to select default classic view. The view sometimes keeps slipping into simplified view even though the classic view has been selected.

There are good support people in Ottawa, but having access to the development team and a TAM make the support. Without that access I don't think IBM Support would be as highly rated.
