Run ahead with Planning Analytics

For many organisations, spreadsheets are the go-to resource for planning – but let’s face it, managing Excel documents takes up precious time and can leave room for human error. On top of this, relying solely on spreadsheets makes it difficult to create budgets and forecasts that are both timely and reliable. This leaves decision-making based on spooky intuition rather than hard facts, and can hold you back from reaching your true potential.

IBM Planning Analytics, powered by IBM TM1, automates your planning, budgeting, forecasting and analysis processes. It transforms your entire planning cycle by giving you complete visibility, and gives you the freedom to plan with confidence.
