So Much Analytics, So Little Time

Once you start using analytics, the possibilities are endless. But you can’t do everything at once. CarpeDatum can help. Our roadmap service is a great way to plan out all of the ideas that add value to your analytics process. Let us define a roadmap for achieving your goals using IBM Planning Analytics powered by TM1. We put checks in place to ensure that each of the activities is added at the right time.

Escape Excel Hell

Forwarding spreadsheet attachments is so last century. CarpeDatum helps you to reduce your reliance on Excel with a planning and forecasting process that involves the entire team, not just the Office of Finance.

But that’s just the first step. CarpeDatum will prioritize where to get more value from Planning Analytics. Your implementation schedule will complement models you already have in place.

If you’re tired of using Excel as your main platform for forecasting, reporting and analytics, we can help. Contact us and let’s get started on your analytics journey.
