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.

The premium advan­tages of the BIConcepts
Planning solution with IBM Planning Analytics

Perfectly scalable for growing companies

Can be used for envi­ron­ments from five to several thousand users. Quickly gain knowledge and adjust plans in real time without changing existing business processes — despite growing data complexity.

Colla­bo­ra­tion across the company

Eliminate silos, unify data, and synchro­nize planning across the enter­prise. This gives you a compre­hen­sive overview of your data and uses this as a basis to create inte­grated plans.

All from a single source

With BIConcepts solutions, you can master today’s business chal­lenges and at the same time forge plans for tomorrow — with a portfolio of solutions that supports the entire analysis cycle.

Flexible imple­men­ta­tion

Can be used quickly and flexibly: Use the BIConcepts solution in an on-premises envi­ron­ment or in the cloud (also in a combi­na­tion of both) and access your planning from anywhere at any time.

In addition to planning, distri­bu­ting and writing back data, IBM Planning Analytics offers a wide range of functions for Ad hoc analyses, data visua­liz­a­tion and dash­boar­ding. The users are supported in the simple creation of calcu­la­tions, can compare different struc­tures flexibly and navigate between report and planning folders easily. The modern, web-based interface is supported by widgets and can be operated intui­tively by the user.

The perfor­mance features

Familiar user interface
Protect your Microsoft Excel invest­ments while over­co­ming the limi­ta­tions of spreads­heets. You can optio­nally continue to use the familiar Excel user interface with addi­tional more powerful functions and add advanced tools such as multi-dimen­sional analysis and planning. In this way, you reduce the effort required to fami­lia­rize yourself with your new planning envi­ron­ment and the throughput times, and you increase the number of planning cycles and flexibility.

Inte­grated data analysis
With inte­grated data analysis functions, you will quickly gain profound knowledge. The included powerful web-based analysis and reporting tools support you with the analysis and the creation of reports. With the seamless inte­gra­tion with Microsoft Excel, you can also use the functions of the well-known spreads­heet program. BIConcepts provides all functions that are necessary for planning, budgeting, fore­cas­ting and analysis. It is not necessary to export planning data to another tool.

What-if scenarios
You can run an unlimited number of what-if scenarios to see the impact of your decisions before you commit. In the flexible private sandbox envi­ron­ment, you can test your options in order to make the stra­te­gi­cally best decision for your company.
