What do you like best?

The best part in Visualizations. Hoping for the same to be continued.

Need to include few training videos for the Hand On Experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Training videos for using of the application need to be added for more Hands-On practices.

However, the tabs have made very much easy for the user for the analysis purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I Personally and Professionally suggest/recommend the IBM Planning Analytics which makes the job easier and also useful for the Analysis and Future Prediction for the Business Marketing purpose.

Dear User, make use the IBM PA product to the fullest. However, I do not find any changes need to be made right now as it is very much feasible for the Users. Going forward if there are any changes required for the same, will keep the Team IBM informed. Moreover I get very good and quick responses for any help if required.

Great and happy user of IBM products. Since so many decades IBM rules the Database Management and it will continue forever.

A simple advice from my side would be to add few videos for the Hands-On practicing purpose for the user.

Rest all is perfectly fine.

Once again I recommend everyone to use IBM Planning Analytics and make the job easier for yourself and also Clients as per the requirement.

Thank you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like the most is the real time calculations. It makes Excel a super tool as you now can have very large amounts of data (compared to pivot function in Excel) - I like the cloud version of this product; makes global deployment extremely easy - The analytical part that this product offers should not be underestimated. Because it has such powerful Excel add-in; what we use Planning Analytics for is to bring data from different sources into cubes (e.g. sales volume data, service level data, logistics performance data, customer data and financial data) and the true value creation is when you combine these data from different sources in your analysis (e.g. link average lease periods from operations data to financial revenue data by customer to determine true ROIC). This tool gives us the possibility to put data together and then play with data, which is not possible at this level with Excel pivot function. Other tools like Tableau, PowerBI etc are able to analyse but only on data that is loaded into it. Add hoc load-ins from different data-sources are not really possible; you always need IT to get data connections. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that the chart functions for web-based reports are basic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Helping to forecast the number of units that we keep in inventory, that we need to ship (to stay in stock) and that we need to manufacture on a weekly basis. This was all previously done in Excel, and was very manual, it is now very automated in PA, and our confidence in our numbers is dramatically higher. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

BM Planning Analytics (PA) is not very modern. The price can be an issue and it can be expensive for some users. The dashboarding feature needs to do a better job. Integrating planning analytics is very slow and their team needs to fix it. The TI process has a really poor management. The application construction is not straightforward. The customer support is not available in all countries so it becomes difficult to manage problems. The learning curve is steep. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I detest that it requires a more drawn out investment for the document to process if the record has a great deal of information. Additionally, if the record surpasses a specific measure of lines that it will send out, it won't work, which implies there is a farthest point to the measure of information that you can work with.

It tends to be utilized in numerous regions of your business not simply monetary arranging so has a more prominent ROI. Request a proof of idea with your information.

The self-service and ad-hoc capabilities of Planning Analytics Workspace bring the data to the end user in unique and exciting ways. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

IBM needs to do a better job of integrating Planning Analytics with Cognos Analytics. They have been slow on this front and they are hurting both brands because of it. At this point in being together under the IBM family, they should be completely seamless with one another and share best of both. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The fact that you can use TM1 for all kinds of planning and analysis, not just financials. It is infinitely flexible, and we use it extensively outside of the Finance group. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The front-end continues to lag a bit behind other options on the market. We ue TM1Web, and it is functional but not very "modern". We have tried implementing some things in PAW, but haven't yet gotten anything into Production. The learning curve is steeper than we thought, and we've had issues with private views/subsets as part of the dashboards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

IBM Planning Analytics changes the way that Budgeting can be faced by a Company. It take more agility, networking, security, and the capacity to do more with less.

Just little points can be improved. One point is the product price. Another great point is the establish of IBM Cloud. We have faced some problems in SaaS enviroment.

The IBM Planning Analytics platform is robust and evolving according to the needs of its users. It has brought to the planning universe more than just a way of working with calculations and scenario simulations. The visual with which the data is viewed has helped significantly the presentation of results. Is a platform that delivers what you want when it comes to data volume and speed of processing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The process of application construction is not very intuitive in the view of the end user. I believe this is directly linked to feeders. Performance Modeler, despite having come up with a proposal to facilitate construction, the end result for larger projects can be frustrating in terms of maintenance and migration. Currently there are several client server applications that make the implementation and maintenance process extremely confusing. I understand that the client server tools will be discontinued because they are still distributed to new clients, even in the cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As a consultant who has been working with the platform for some years, I have been able to help my clients using specific methodologies to implement optimization algorithms in order to guarantee the best combinations of results.

it would be good if you can organise your TI process more proper manner, for example use some kind of folder structure for TI Processes.
