I'm glad to see progress made on integrating TM1 and BI as it is sorely needed. TM1 is much more scalable than Enterprise Planning and our users love the fast refresh of reporting cubes from contributor cubes. However, they miss their BI reports. Replicating the functionality offered by the EP Framework Manager Extension is very difficult. We miss several features, most notably flattening of hierarchies and automatic generation of a base package from the model and not from individual cubes. We need a package so we can do links between cubes for validation reports. If TM1 is going to be "owned by Finance" as EP was, these features are crucial.
