Planning to IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) Migration

Is legacy Cognos Planning software not meeting the needs of the organization? Are the limitations around scalability and analytics capability and the hurdles required to maintain the solution challenging the organization's ability to properly support existing planning and performance management processes?

With the release of IBM Planning Analytics (TM1), IBM has combined the best of both worlds into a single enterprise performance management solution. TM1’s high-performance, in-memory architecture is designed to handle complex business models, large data volumes, and large user bases, without compromising on performance. TM1 alleviates the need to build various, fragmented applications pieced together with administration links and batch processes, by offering a single, integrated solution for an organization’s performance management needs.
