Overview of TM1
Transcript:
  • Cognos TM1 @ IBM CognosNew analysis and business optimization capabilities across the Cognos product familyUnique value propositions such as:

    very fast real-time performancescalability for large data volumesnon-technical user-centric designan Excel-based approach to application development Deployable in a stand-alone configuration or integrated with dedicated Cognos planning, consolidation, analysis and reporting products

    *

  • Analyst Praise for IBM Cognos TM1Key findings from the Butler Group "Technology Audit"Strong OLAP capabilities and the speed of the TM1 engine underpin the inherent strength of this technologyLinked multi-dimensional cubes form the heart of this Performance Management solutionCalculations are performed in real-time, so that dynamic analysis is possibleTight integration to Excel enables users to work without stepping outside of traditional comfort zonesFlexible Web delivery includes dashboards and scorecards, self-service analytics, Excel-authored reports and ad-hoc analysis

    *

  • Cognos TM1 Capabilities in a NutshellRead/write at speed of thought for Planning and BudgetingWhat-if scenario modeling for ForecastingIn-memory multi-dimensional cubes for Analysis and Reporting Centrally-managed business hierarchies, rules and calculations Built-in data and metadata integrationLeverages Excel functionality and skills

  • TM1 Database Components

    FeatureBenefit64-bitModel and analyze large data volumes with fast response timesIn-MemoryEasily create simulations interactively to test new business assumptionsMulti-CubeModel any type of business process; natural way to build modelsRules LanguageCreate complex financial applicationsTurbo IntegratorEasily load large amounts of data quickly (e.g., intraday) from any sources including ERP, DW, etc.

    *User-centric, Excel-based authoring > maximize skill re-use, minimize trainingChoice of user interfaces depending on business role (contributor versus consumer)Simple yet powerful no-coding modeling languageMulti-dimensional + multi-cube = natural data modelsMassive what-if capability due to in-memory calc-on-the-fly architectureSmall technology footprint -> easy to deploy and maintain, minimal IT requirementFast data integration enables intra-day model refresh

  • TM1 Presentation Components Cognos TM1 WebCognos TM1 ExcelCognos TM1 Server ExplorerCognos TM1 Executive Viewer

    FeatureBenefitTM1 Server ExplorerBuild, deploy, and maintain application dimensions, cubes, rules, security, etc. Cognos TM1 ExcelEasily create reports and templates deployed via Excel or webCognos TM1 WebSimply access Excel generated reports or input templatesCognos TM1 Executive ViewerSelf-service ad-hoc analysis optimized for R/W access to TM1 (also supports Essbase, MSAS, SAP BW)

    *The presentation layer of TM1 consists of four different views in the TM1 database:

    TM1 Server explorer is the primary developer interface; it is where you design your cubes, dimensions and business rulesTM1 Excel enables business users to author reports and even entire applications using Excel as the authoring mediumTM1 Web takes those Excel-authored reports and applications and instantly converts them to a format that can be accessed through a Web browser, with zero coding skills requiredFinally, TM1 Executive Viewer is a sophisticated analysis and visualization environment that lets end-users do self-service analytics. It does not rely on Excel in any way.
