TM1

TM1 is one of the best OLAP tools in the business with 36 of the Fortune 50 companies using it and over 50% of the Fortune 500. It is owned by IBM through their Cognos brand.

TM1 consistently outperforms other OLAP engines in speed and performance as well as the ability to manage complex calculations. The acquistion by Cognos will also see a vastly improved front end.

TM1 is tightly integrated with Excel and allows the system to be deployed via an Excel front end to simplify the system for end users and minimise their learning curve. The system can also be deployed via the web. Regardless of how the users interact with the system all users are working with the same data which means one version of the truth.
