We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is that it is able to slice and dice the data.""All the different platforms are well integrated.""Navigating through the data to make analysis is really quick."

More IBM Planning Analytics Pros »

"It's really an enterprise solution. It has a dashboard, like standard dashboarding functionality. It also has reporting capabilities for producing pixel-perfect reports, bursting large volumes of a document if you need to. It has interactive data discovery functionality, which you would use to explore your data, bring your own data, and merge it with maybe the data from an enterprise data warehouse to get new insights from the pre-existing data. It has machine learning embedded in the solution. If you're new to machine learning, it's a really good way to get into it, because it's all within this platform, and it's really easy to use.""The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization.""The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code.""The product is easily customized."

Cons
"It's wonky, and not super user-friendly with Excel.""Extracting data is a little slow.""It would have been better if the solution was not just a tool kit."

"As with most BI tools, the visualizations can be made much nicer. Currently, it has standard visualizations. They've been adding new visualizations, but we see animated visualizations from other vendors. It would be nice to have similar visualizations, such as the swarming visualizations, which are fairly new and very popular at the moment. I haven't seen that with Oracle. That would be nice.""Sharing dataflows is not possible at this time, and the custom chart functionality is not available.""At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced.""The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built in."
