QueBIT Blog: IBM Planning Analytics/TM1 Performance Assessments

Posted by James Miller

Way back in 2014, I offered some ideas for when there was a need to conduct a performance assessment of a TM1 model with limited time or budget. This scenario often still arises, even though TM1 has evolved into IBM Planning Analytics, so I thought it might be interesting to revisit some of my original recommendations to see if they may still be helpful.

QueBIT Blog: IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) Model Serviceability

Posted by James Miller

In a previous post ( Keep the IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) design clean!), I talked about paying attention to the common or “functional” components of a planning analytics model as this is an area that can have a profound effect on the performance, sustainability and usability of the model.
