IBM published Planning Analytics TM1Web Tuning Guide And here it is. Very useful content. Overall I must say I’m really impressed with this new WLP backed TM1Web, it’s a lot faster and more stable than Tomcat in 10.

TM1p ini file equivalent for Planning Analytics for Excel Is called CommManagerSettings.xml and is located in C:\Users\<yourUserNameHere>\AppData\Local\Cognos\Office Connection\.

Coursera: Big Data Analysis with Scala and Spark
Work has been quite intense and very high-level recently, so I was missing the state of flow and the builders high that accompany coding.

Most useful Planning Analytics feature for me so far: StatsByRule
It’s Xmas time again and we get the big bag of presents this time: Planning Analytics on Premise is finally here. There’s a ton of new things to like in new Planning Analytics (and all those need to be throughly tested, so I wouldn’t be upgrading just right now).
