How Exploring TM1 Can help You
Imagine the potential and power of business intelligence tools that can be sculpted and moulded to meet any business requirement, and 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 gain traction with business users or were implemented in ways that limited their usefulness.
At Infocube we aim to empower your TM1 administrators and users alike to get the best from TM1, using it in ways that will best describe your business and processes. That is why we established ExploringTM1. Ultimately giving your users the best value-for-money available with that money you have already spent on licensing.
“To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.” – Benjamin Disraeli. As a reminder to us that we 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.
