PM2Plan combines the capabilities of IBM InfoSphere to provide all the foundational building blocks of trusted information, including data integration, data warehousing, master data management, big data and information governance.

This data foundation is then used with IBM's next generation business analytics solutions like Planning Analytics and TM1 for the above named modules, Cognos Analytics / Business Intelligence for advanced reporting and Dashboarding.

PM2Plan then extends the value to advanced predictive analytics utilising the breadth of statistical analysis provided by IBM SPSS, by performing advanced analytics, data mining, text mining and statistical analysis including regression analysis, cluster analysis and correlation analysis, data modeling and predictive modeling.

All relevant reports and planning models will be accessed by the end users through the single web portal. Data capture happens via Web Client short commands, break back, history tracking and ownership and workflow management. The web portal also provides advanced Reporting and Analysis capabilities. Other features include, Change history and ownership, Real-time plan status, Provision of aggregated hierarchical view of all business units and Centralised maintenance.

+ Competitive Advantage

The PM2Plan solution uses a unique methodology and has integrated capabilities for financial, sales and operational planning. It takes into consideration HQ requirements but also the needs of distributing, production, and business units in regional countries. Not just for the country specific implementations, but especially as an adaptable methodology to roll out applications to multiple countries as part of a regional deployment. We have developed a proven and workable approach to re-using the applications that have been built, we have also seen impressive time savings for the implementation for single countries participating in a regional project (up to 60% time savings due to re-usability.

Business Problem

There is a challenge for customers to rollout performance management solutions throughout the ASEAN region ie., with different countries, different languages, and typically, a shared services structure. PM2Plan integrates the requirements of sales, finance, operations and other departments but with a unique modular approach that can be leveraged across international borders.

Business Opportunity

Many of the organisations we have worked with start in one country, and then roll-out the solution regionally, or even globally. This makes PM2Plan a truly scalable and agile performance management tool for your organisation.
