BIConcepts module
“Planning & Co”

The solution for planning, budgeting, forecasting and flexible analyses

With this BIConcepts solution you can map all your necessary business cases: sales and quantity planning, personnel planning, sales planning, integrated success and financial planning and much more. Top-down and bottom-up planning, simple simulation options and scenario planning support you in fast and flexible planning and ensure optimal decision-making.

In the BIConcepts projects we use a resource-rich planning software with IBM Planning Analytics TM1. IBM Planning Analytics offers a powerful and scalable platform for planning and analysis. In addition to the innovative product, the in-memory data storage and the multidimensional simulation options, IBM Planning Analytics also offers a variety of visualizations to make planning and analysis easier for the viewer.

In addition to the web-based components such as TM1 Web or Planning Analytics Workspace, which are used for modelling, administration, planning, analysis and target / actual comparisons, this solution can also be seamlessly integrated into MS Excel. This means that users can use the familiar Excel functionality in full and at the same time use the advantages of a central plan model with central data storage in the TM1 database.

BIConcepts supports you in analysing the requirements of your planning, setting up your planning project and implementing it together with you in a short lead time.
