There’s plenty of news about “The Great Resignation” or the talent shortage/war. In some cases, the challenge is not in finding someone, but in finding the right skills. This is particularly true for companies searching for people with IBM Planning Analytics / TM1 skills. There is a deep talent pool but tapping that talent can sometimes be expensive and resource intense. It’s a months-long journey.
You might consider choosing to go with a contractor or freelancer. This may initially sound like the quickest and easiest way to solve the problem… until you hit a wall with your procurement department. Often contractors and freelancers do not have the business set up that meets procurement’s requirements. Or, if that is not a problem, you can run into the challenge of having your TM1 contractor/freelancer disappear on you.
Revelwood can help! We have recently launched a Staff Augmentation service. Maybe your TM1 administrator is taking on a new role. Maybe your administrator will be out for a few months on parental leave. This is where you can easily work with one of our Planning Analytics / TM1 experts to fill that hole – however long you may need them.
Here are some recent examples of how and why companies using Planning Analytics / TM1 turned to Revelwood for staff augmentation:
- A global manufacturing company had their TM1 administrator resign. Revelwood had a team member ready to go the following week. This allowed for a one-week knowledge transfer, followed by a smooth start.
- A leading consumer product business was starting a major Planning Analytics project and needed significant staff augmentation to both maintain and redesign the system. A Revelwood team of developers was brought in to supplement their in-house team.
- A Fortune 50 energy company was struggling to hire an internal Planning Analytics / TM1 developer. They engaged a Revelwood team member who understood both the business needs and the technology needs to help prepare for their budget season.
Whether or not you’ve worked with us in the past, you’ll have access to experienced and proven Planning Analytics / TM1 developers and designers. We have 27 years of experience with TM1 – and will satisfy all of your procurement department’s requirements.
Think of us as the best team you have access to – experts ready to be called up when you need them!
