IBM Planning Analytics Local is an enterprise planning software platform that can transform your entire planning cycle, from target setting and budgeting to reporting, scorecarding, analysis and forecasting. Available as an on-premise or on-cloud solution, and with extensive mobile capabilities, Planning  Analytics Local enables you to collaborate on plans, budgets and forecasts.

You can analyze data, and create models – including profitability models – to reflect a constantly evolving business environment. In addition, integrated scorecards and strategy management capabilities help you monitor performance metrics and align resources and initiatives with corporate objectives and market events.

  • Analyze large, frequently changing data sets organized into complex models using a multidimensional, 64-bit, in-memory OLAP engine.
  • Add metrics and scorecards to every contributor’s workspace.
  • Model and measure key performance indicators (KPIs) in the same environment used for planning, budgeting and forecasting.
  • Ensure that strategic plans and measurement systems align capital with business opportunities.

  • Contribute to plans from any location. Users can review the status of plans and enter and submit plan values; managers can review, approve or reject contributions remotely.

  • Scale to thousands of participants to support top-down and bottom-up planning budgeting, and forecasting.
  • Choose from on-premise or on-cloud deployment as the best delivery mechanism for your unique corporate environment—without sacrificing capabilities or limiting future deployment options.

  • Allow contribution by remote users and integration with on-premise data sources.
Cognos Analytic Server, a component of IBM Planning Analytics Local, offers advanced distributed architecture for greater scalability and interactivity. It lets an organization choose centralized or distributed deployment methods for its planning activities, depending upon the level of interactivity needed.
