PAITM – IBM Planning Analytics: Intermediate Training

Home / PAITM – IBM Planning Analytics: Intermediate Training

IBM Planning Analytics: Intermediate Training is ideal for students that have taken the N0PAE- Essentials of IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) training course (or have equivalent experience) and would like more hands-on practice with TM1.

This course is designed for developers looking to learn how to create dimensions and cubes; import, export, and manipulate data using Turbo Integrator; create rules and feeders; set up security and workflow, and create professional reports that are linked to Planning Analytics servers.

Students will participate in hands-on exercises that illustrate key concepts while building their knowledge of IBM Planning Analytics. It’s primarily “guided practice” (i.e. the student practices performing common TM1 developer tasks (building dimensions, exporting, importing, writing rules, etc.) with assistance from the instructor as requested. Exercises and sample solutions are discussed near the end of the session.

The majority of the week is spent building a “mini-project” where students take an existing Excel planning model and rebuild it in TM1.

This model includes the entire back-end including dimensions, cubes, rules, TI processes, and security. Students will build the input templates and reports for the front-end as well.
