Latest release IBM Planning Analytics Workspace 2.0.47Sarah Whitworth
IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW) 2.0.47 was released on 20 November 2019. Contact us to arrange an upgrade/ install or training. IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW) is a web-based interface for IBM Planning Analytics which provides you with exciting ways to plan, create, and analyse your content. IBM has invested heavily in expanding the TM1 interface options with a user-friendly and attractive experience aimed at a wide user community.
Here is a brief summary of the new features in PAW:
1. Create a cube by importing a text file
You can quickly and easily create and populate a cube and its dimensions without having to write processes, by importing a text file into IBM Planning Analytics Workspace.
2. Improvements to importing into dimensions
Improvements to importing into dimensions means that you can easily update an existing dimension hierarchy, and have more control over the dimension structure.
You can now update an existing dimension hierarchy (previously you could import only into an empty hierarchy). You can select a multi-level dimension structure when you create a new dimension by importing a text file, so you can quickly create a dimension with multiple levels. You can also specify a decimal separator and a thousand separator.
3. Apply aggregate calculations in a view
You can apply an aggregate calculation to two or more values in a view so that you can represent the aggregate value in a chart or report.
You can use aggregate calculations to summarize values that can’t simply be added up or averaged. For example, percentage or ratio values that are the result of a rule calculation.
For both Planning Analytics Workspace on cloud and Planning Analytics Workspace Local, you must have IBM Planning Analytics version 2.0.9 or later.
