Overall Satisfaction with IBM Planning Analytics Local

  • Performance is amazing because of it's in-memory OLAP engine.
  • With a little experience, it's a great rapid deployment platform that can model just about any business process.
  • It is actually quite scalable considering the amount of RAM that can be installed on servers nowadays.
  • Easy to setup and migrate to a new environment.
  • It lacks a pretty user interface.
  • Learning curve can be high for non-technical person.
  • Getting data out of the system could be easier.
  • With the right mix of consultants, contractors, and internal W2 employees, ROI can be as high as 160 hours saved per month for a $100K project.
Software may not be cheap but a cheaper version (IBM Cognos Express) is out there if you don't have that many users.

Using IBM Planning Analytics Local

This is a planning developer's dream. You feel like you're given a blank canvas with all the right tools to make it an artwork. It is the future of business application development.
