Simulations & Forecasts
With the help of the CPM solutions you can quickly and easily create simulation models which accurately reflect the business challenges, because it provides the analytic intelligence needed for evaluating the potential impact of decisions before they are made.
In practice, users enter numeric data at any aggregation level (e.g., Sales per product line), and the changes are automatically allocated upwards (Total Sales) and down to the lowest level of detail (product code) to all correlated dimensions (once the user has updated the sales per product line, the changes will also be distributed across geographic regions, sales channels, customers, etc.).
Move past the limits of the Excel solutions
Forecasts available to anyone
The CPM solution incorporates advanced analysis and data forecasting capabilities in your business processes, so you can keep up with today’s pace of business development
Users can discover trends, generate forecasts, create simulations, and easily make decisions
The automated predictive model of the CPM system can generate highly accurate forecasts in a fraction of the time and effort spent with the traditional systems
Starting from the forecast, by adding additional information to the scenario, the impact of the external variables on the forecast can be easily observed
Users choose the desired number of groups and observation sets (i.g. profitability and turnover), and the system creates instant clusters and makes them available as dimensions for analysis. This integration between the clustering capability and application environment allows not only the instant creation of cluster-based reports, graphs and self-service analyzes but also their use as forecasting or planning units
