You are invited to join Grandview and IBM for a "taste" of how Cognos and Planning Analytics can help you differentiate with data.


CxOs and line of business executives are seeking faster, flexible solutions to help them deliver deeper insights and stronger foresight to steer business performance more effectively. All too often, however, they believe they have to compromise between the ease of use and fast deployment of a cloud solution and the powerful, flexible, analytic capabilities traditionally available only in on-premises solutions. But now they can have it all with IBM Planning Analytics. Speed, agility and foresight—all in one.

IBM Planning Analytics, powered by IBM Cognos TM1, automates your planning, budgeting, forecasting and analysis processes. Planning Analytics allows you to speed up cycle times and improve staff productivity and can help your business adapt to changing market conditions by linking operational tactics to financial plans based on dynamic, driver-based models.

Join the teams from Grandview and IBM on Wednesday, July 24th at Trophy Tap & Table to understand how delivering insights automatically gives you a competitive advantage and allows your organization to stay agile for the changes ahead. (Psst... We might taste some great brews too!)
