InfoCat's annual Customer Day and TM1 Open Day took place on Monday 27 June.
We were delighted to welcome a large audience, with a mix of our existing clients and businesses new to TM1. With all the latest updates on TM1, presentations on Decision Optimisation, Watson Analytics and TM1 Compare, and a dedicated stream for delegates new to Cognos TM1 this was the event for everyone with an interest in improving their performance management processes.
IBM got us started with a presentation on CFOs' insights, strategies and priorities.
Delegates then split into two streams:
- For existing TM1 users: an update on latest product enhancements and other news, fresh from IBM's VISION 2016 conference held in the USA in May, and including a look at Planning Analytics (TM1 on Cloud)
- For those new to TM1: "Planning Beyond Spreadsheets" was an introduction to budgeting, reporting and forecasting using TM1 and included a live demonstration of building a new application
The afternoon sessions included an in-depth look at the TM1 road map, presented by IBM, and introductions to Watson Analytics, Optimisation and the TM1 Compare audit and migration tool.
