The IBM® Planning Analytics Solution for Allocations & Profitability Modeling leverages an Allocations Engine based on proven, IBM-developed Allocation Algorithms, combined with modular Plug & Play Modeling Assets to:
  • allow the deployment of comprehensive financial allocation, costing, and profitability solutions
  • within a matter of days to weeks
  • without requiring IT (IBM TM1) development skills
  • at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than traditional profitability modeling solutions

With a configurable and scalable allocation engine at its core, and leveraging the capabilities of TM1’s in-memory multi-cube architecture, the solution allows combining the flexibility of a traditional financial allocation process engine with the (financial and procedural) transparency of an activity-based profitability modeling approach.
