Description
Bottom rule

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

With Planning Analytics, you pay a monthly fee for the rights to use the software. The cloud environment is managed and supported exclusively by IBM at an IBM 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. Planning Analytics 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 add additional Planning Analytics modelers, add additional Planning Analytics users, add additional production instances of Planning Analytics, and add additional nonproduction instances of Planning Analytics.

Planning Analytics provides a dynamic planning and analytics workspace to help you:

  • Link operational tactics with financial plans.
  • Synthesize information.
  • Infer trends.
  • Deliver insights to improve decision quality.

You can easily model and deploy metrics and scorecards that are aligned with your budgets, actuals, forecasts, and all other versions of plan data. While users enter plan data, they have full access to all of the KPIs and metrics that affect them, and can immediately see how their new plans and assumptions affect the organization's KPIs and strategies. Planning Analytics 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 format. Planning Analytics provides an advanced capability to integrate Planning Analytics data with IBM Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel.

Users may leverage one of two modes. One mode enables users to review and post data from prebuilt views that they or others have authored, and another mode enables users to create Cognos Analysis for Microsoft Excel free form views requiring no formulas. These modes are designed to empower novice users, as well as the most demanding power users of Planning Analytics.

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 given access to 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 and 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.


Gigabyte

Gigabyte is a unit of measure by which the Cloud Service can be obtained. A gigabyte is defined as 2 to the 30th power bytes of data (1,073,741,824 bytes). Gigabytes are used to measure the uncompressed size of data sets loaded to the Cloud Service. Sufficient entitlements must be obtained to cover the number of gigabytes hosted in the Cloud Service at any point during the measurement period.


Engagement

Engagement is a unit of measure by which the services can be obtained. An Engagement consists of professional 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 Proof of Entitlement (PoE) or Transaction Document.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

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.
