What If

The multi-dimensional modelling capabilities of IBM Planning Analytics lets you test assumptions, adjust priorities and allocate resources in real time.

What-if modelling can help your firm manage risk during the decision making process. Quick, accurate and reliable scenario analysis enables users to further understand the impact of decisions made and significantly reduce the risk on the company’s financials.

Users have typically performed what-if scenario modelling in spreadsheets, accepting the risks and challenges that go with it. IBM Planning Analytics allows for much more complex, multi-dimensional what-if models.

Capital Adequacy

Using exactly the same base data, the Capital Adequacy solution accelerator allows users to explore the what-if scenarios and the impact on corporate budgets & forecasts.

Using IBM Planning Analytics’ sandboxing capability, scenario analysis can be run in real time to instantaneously update the entire plan (P&L, Balance Sheet, Cashflow). Multiple scenarios can be run across multiple sandboxes.  Results can be quickly shared, incorporated into central forecasts or simply deleted.
