Cognos TM1

It’s old but it still works…..IBM Cognos TM1 applications are supported by its patented, 64-bit, in-memory online analytical processing (OLAP) server, which provides on-demand analytics of complex multidimensional data with real-time analysis and calculation performance. IBM Java Runtime Environment.

TM1 is the basis for organizing and managing applications. Application modelers can use Cognos TM1 Application Web, Cognos Insight in distributed, or Cognos Insight in connected mode to contribute to their applications. You can start Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler from Cognos TM1 Applications. Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler is used by modelers to plan and build the data structures on which applications are based.

TM1 is suited to very large organizations who can afford to hire technical administrators who can manage the Cognos stack and that have larger IT budgets and a large volume of data

Recommended Use Cases:

  • Advanced FP&A for large Enterprises
  • Advanced in-excel reporting
  • Extremely large volumes of transactional data or large dimensions
  • Advanced scripting available including writing loops for iterative calculations


Developers will use the architect interface below, not as clean as new apps but still gets the job done.
