Our Customers are now upgrading from Cognos EP to IBM Planning Analytics

Cognos Enterprise Planning (aka Cognos EP, previously known as Cognos Planning) is an integral part of many organisation’s budgeting and forecasting processes. Customers love the workflow screen that  helps the finance department to manage collection of planning submissions visually monitor progress of the plan.

The workflow feature was often the main factor that discouraged customers from updating to IBM Planning Analytics. A role-based workflow capability was previously absent from the Planning Analytics / TM1 product, but recent IBM development has delivered a workflow module that is both role-based and activity-based, is easy to set up, far more flexible, and better-looking than its predecessor.

Six Reasons Cognos EP customers upgrade to IBM Planning Analytics

  • Instant, immediate recalculation across the whole model – No more waiting for ‘Go To Production’
  • Eliminate size constraints. Planning Analytics can handle huge data sets and dimensions and recalculate in seconds. No need to break the design down into smaller cubes
  • Easy scenario modelling – create new scenarios across the entire model instantly for what-if analysis
  • Reports, visualisations and dashboards that are integral. Watch them update instantly as you build your plan
  • Predictive forecasting – let the computer do the hard work
  • IBM Cloud platform eliminates the need to pay for and manage your own IT

We have a history of working with Armar in the past, which was to a high quality. We’re comfortable with Aramar managing the project and moving the management of our licence to them.

The project outcome was successful, our objectives were achieved plus value-added in the use of Cognos.

IBM recommended Aramar as Aramar have experience getting the Cognos products to work together.
