Overall Satisfaction with IBM Planning Analytics
As a developer who needs to make data-driven decisions, I use IBM Planning Analytics for its sophisticated planning, analytics, and artificial intelligence capabilities. IBM Planning Analytics is well integrated into the IBM suite of tools and offers state-of-the-art forecasting and planning functionalities that are easy to replicate and take advantage of. It's the planning tool of the future! The main business problem that IBM Planning Analytics helps us solve is the need for AI-empowered forecasting and budgeting.
- Forecasting, Budgeting, and Planning
- Easy to set up and customize
- Strong data storage and security protocols with IBM
- There's a lot of functionality that the platform has, so it's easy to get lost.
- Training on how to take advantage of the full functionality of the platform is needed.
- Requires coding knowledge
- Sped up decision-making
- Centralized forecasting and reporting
- Facilitated financial reporting
I used Oracle Hyperion Planning System before I switched to IBM Planning Analytics, and I believe that IBM has a stronger offering and capabilities when it comes specifically to financial forecasting and long-term planning. It's easier to use, with added artificial intelligence features, such as NLP functionalities and cognitive processing.
