IBM recently announced the official End of Support dates for two of the IBM Cognos TM1 10.2.x versions:
- IBM Cognos TM1 10.2.0 will reach End of Support on 2018-09-30
- IBM Cognos TM1 10.2.2 will reach End of Support on 2019-09-30
By now, most TM1 users are aware of IBM’s transition from IBM Cognos TM1 to IBM Planning Analytics. Planning Analytics contains the full functionality of TM1, including both Excel and Web interfaces, so the concept of migrating can be as simple as upgrading your TM1 version. Planning Analytics currently allows users to continue using both Perspectives and TM1 Web which gives you the opportunity to migrate in phases:
- Existing Excel reports can use your current Perspectives approach and be migrated to PAx (Planning Analytics for Excel) at a later time
- Existing Web reports can use your current TM1 Web approach and be migrated to PAw (Planning Analytics Workspace) at a later time
Planning Analytics Migration Resources:
We’ve created multiple resources including on-demand webinars featuring product demonstrations and technical blog posts to help you understand the opportunity presented with this migration, plan your strategy and make the transition. Migrating from IBM Cognos TM1 to Planning Analytics is a much bigger opportunity than a standard upgrade or basic migration. While the underlying TM1 engine remains as powerful as ever, IBM has made significant changes to the product to improve the user and developer experience.
