Watch our latest IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks video to learn about the aggregate function. Lee Lazarow, Revelwood’s FP&A Technology director, demonstrates this new function that allows you to summarize values that cannot be added up or averaged.
You’ll see Lee create a simple view of net income, examining some of the details associated with opex. He looks at it for multiple companies and for a total. Lee explains how one set of data is from the original numbers that your planners input into Planning Analytics. That data is doing a standard roll-up.
The second set of data is for a calculation of the percentage of net income. Lee demonstrates what you should do if you don’t want to look at the pre-built consolidation, but instead want to look at only some of the companies. He walks you through how to create your own calculation.
You’ll learn how to make sure this calculation is not a sum calculation, but instead how to leverage the aggregate function to summarize values such as percentages or ratios.
