American Public Media Group (APMG) needed to easily see the impact of personnel changes on their bottom line – previously run as a separate and manual model. They wanted to eliminate their long reconciliation process in order to allow near-real-time insight.
The company implemented the IBM® Planning Analytics on Cloud which automates planning, budgeting, forecasting and analysis processes.
Forecast changes reflect almost immediately as a result of dramatically increased performance. The utilization of a cloud solution frees their IT team from the cost and effort of maintaining infrastructure in-house. The solution’s ability to handle much larger quantities of data allows APMG to model in greater detail.
