Replicating a Cube from a one TM1 Server into another has never been easier. Follow the steps below to copy a cube from one server to another (this includes synchronising TM1 Dimensions). This process uses the ODBO Provider for TM1 and generated MDX. I was going to show how to create an MDX Query for the desired cube but as it turns out you can select ODBO Cube as the data type … Continue Reading
Currently on-site at client installing TM1 Cognos Express. The client wishes to use the contributor application to utilize workflow in the forecast.
