Description
Bottom rule

IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 enables organizations to optimize performance through advanced planning, analytics, modeling, and reporting. Through IBM Cognos TM1's broad flexibility, you can model and then deploy varied planning solutions that address the diverse needs of every department in the organization. These applications are supported by Cognos TM1's patented, 64-bit, in-memory online analytical processing (OLAP) server, which provides on-demand analytics of complex multidimensional data with real-time analysis and improve performance via calculation improvements.

With IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud, you pay a monthly fee for the rights to use the software. The cloud environment is managed and supported exclusively by IBM and its contractors on IBM hardware at an IBM or IBM contractor's data center. You are responsible only for the implementation of the application, which means development of the model, configuration of the client tools you choose to deploy, populating the model with data, and assignment of user rights to the application. The on-cloud option delivers significant savings in hardware acquisition, deployment expenses for hardware and software, and ongoing IT support for the entire application footprint. A selection of license options allows the user to:

IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 now enables you to easily model and deploy metrics and scorecards that are perfectly aligned with your budgets, actuals, forecasts, and all other versions of plan data. While they enter plan data, end users have full access to all of the KPIs and metrics that affect them, and they can see how their new plans and assumptions immediately affect the organization's KPIs and strategies.

With the proliferation of tablets, lightweight computers, and smartphones, workers commonly carry out their work responsibilities away from the office and sometimes for long periods of time. IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 supports this trend by striving to support performance management wherever performance is executed. IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 delivers support for the planning function.

IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 enables organizations to deploy planning templates that reduce errors, and save troubleshooting and auditing time. However, all organizations have power users that insist on working with their plan data in Microsoft Excel. IBM Cognos TM1 on Cloud V10.2 provides an advanced capability to integrate Cognos TM1 data with IBM Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel. Users may leverage one of two modes - one that enables them to review and post data from prebuilt views that they or others have authored, and one that enables users to create Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel freeform views, requiring no formulas. These modes are designed to empower the most novice of uses, as well as the most demanding of power users.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User an may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Access

Access is a unit of measure by which the IBM SaaS may be obtained. An Access is the rights to use the IBM SaaS. Customer must obtain a single Access entitlement in order to use the IBM SaaS during the measurement period specified in customer's Proof of Entitlement (PoE) or Transaction Document.

Engagement

Engagement is a unit of measure by which the services can be obtained. An Engagement consists of professional and/or training services related to the IBM SaaS. Sufficient entitlements must be obtained to cover each Engagement.

Instance

Instance is a unit of measure by which the IBM SaaS can be obtained. An Instance is access to a specific configuration of the IBM SaaS. Sufficient entitlements must be obtained for each Instance of the IBM SaaS made available to access and use during the measurement period specified in customer's PoE) or Transaction Document.

Statement of good security practices

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
