Cognos TM1 (IBM Cognos TM1) ceased to be a standalone software application in its own right during 2016, following the introduction of IBM Planning Analytics.
IBM Planning Analytics introduced many additional features and capabilities, but retained Cognos TM1 as the powerful database engine which delivers the multi-dimensional data cubes which drive the application.
In designing the upgraded application in this way, IBM retained all of the features and functionality of TM1 while enabling an extended Planning, Budgeting, Forecasting, Analysis, and Scorecarding application to enhance the original impressive capabilities of Cognos TM1 itself.

TM1Compare is a powerful, yet easy to use, utility that enables TM1 administrators to visually compare, migrate, audit and synchronise TM1 objects across servers. TM1Compare was developed by US-based IBM and InfoCat partner Carpe Datum.
TM1Compare provides a visual environment to readily compare items from two TM1 servers at the object level such as Cognos TM1 cubes, dimensions and TI processes. You can also compare sub-objects including rules, views, subsets and attributes. TM1Compare compares not just the objects themselves but also the content of those objects. When you identify that a difference exists, you can bring the objects up side by side with the difference highlighted.
The usual process for promoting from development to test, or indeed any migration between TM1 servers, is to take down the target server and then manually copy the objects across. TM1Compare handles this process automatically, and – most importantly – there is no need to take the server down.
Moving TM1 systems between servers, especially in larger deployments, often involves personnel from different teams – for example development and operations. TM1Compare enables you to create a collaborative "migration package", shared by the stakeholders who use it to drive the part of the process for which they are responsible before handing it on to the next team. The migration package ensures tight control of the move and is of particular importance in enterprises with a high level of data governance.
