The Business User Approach
Imagine the potential and power of a business intelligence tool which can be sculpted and moulded to meet any business requirement, but can then also be maintained and used day to day by that non technical bunch we call management accounting.
This is the real-life situation for many implementors of IBM Cognos TM1. But, there are also many TM1 implementations that didn’t make it to production, didn’t take with business users or are implemented in limiting ways. At TM1Tutorials.com we aim to empower your TM1 Administrators and Users alike to use the best from TM1, sculpting and moulding it in ways that will best describe your business and processes. Ultimately giving your users the best value-for-money available with that money you have already spent on licensing.
Presently TM1 Tutorials covers technical administrative responsibilities like server backups, installing newer versions of IBM Cognos TM1 and maintenance methodologies for Dimensions, Processes, Cubes and Data. In the future we are going to expand on non-technical components of implementing TM1, aspects like:
- “What should we provide the consultants, before they crete a Statement of Work?”
- “What should a Statement of Work cover and how best to approach and interpret it?”
“To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.” – Benjamin Disraeli. As a reminder to myself I would like to state that this is also a learning process for us to put in writing that which we have learned naturally through the process of implementing TM1 over the last 6 years.
