Taste of Analytics Birmingham (Hosted by Grandview & IBM)

When:  Jul 23, 2019 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (CT)
You are invited to join Grandview and IBM for a "taste" of how Cognos and Planning Analytics can help you differentiate with data.

About this Event

CxOs and line of business executives are seeking faster, flexible solutions to help them deliver deeper insights and stronger foresight to steer business performance more effectively. All too often, however, they believe they have to compromise between the ease of use and fast deployment of a cloud solution and the powerful, flexible, analytic capabilities traditionally available only in on-premises solutions. But now they can have it all with IBM Planning Analytics. Speed, agility and foresight—all in one.

  • Speed: Model fast and adapt quickly. Watch your changes being made in real time.
  • Agility: Find the answers automatically from your data – Know, with confidence, what drives positive results in your business and express it in your plans, analyses and forecasts.
  • Foresight: Planning with analytics gives you a clear view of what’s ahead - Planning without analytics is planning without insight. Stop analyzing the wake behind you and see where you’re headed.

IBM Planning Analytics, powered by IBM Cognos TM1, automates your planning, budgeting, forecasting and analysis processes. Planning Analytics allows you to speed up cycle times and improve staff productivity and can help your business adapt to changing market conditions by linking operational tactics to financial plans based on dynamic, driver-based models.

Join the teams from Grandview and IBM on Tuesday, July 23rd at Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook to understand how delivering insights automatically gives you a competitive advantage and allows your organization to stay agile for the changes ahead. (Psst... We might taste some great wine too!)
