Make better, more accurate plans with Planning Analytics

Planning Analytics is a financial planning and analysis tool. It makes planning easier and faster by integrating your data, plans, forecasts and business units on a single platform.

Excel may be sufficient for a while and be “good enough”. But when you have to deal with large amounts of data, in a business environment that has disruptions waiting behind every corner, you need more than “good enough”.

You need a flexible and scalable solution to turn around quickly, you need IBM Planning Analytics.

What if scenario testing

Any question can be easily answered, any hypothesis tested. What if sales of product X increase 10%? What will be the impact on margins? Create personal sandboxes to compare scenarios and test your assumptions. You will see the impacts of your decisions before you make them.

Work on the web or Excel, or both

Planning Analytics can be used in a familiar Excel interface, or the same features can be used in a modern web interface.

Constraint based optimization

How do you make the absolute best capital or production allocation when you have to deal with tens of correlations, constraints and variables? Simply enter them in Planning Analytics and let its AI powered decision optimization engine suggest the best course of action to reach your objectives.
