IBM Planning Analytics Version 46 - Key Release Updates

Posted by Rob Harag on October 10, 2019

IBM Planning Analytics Version 46 will be released on October 15, 2019. The release includes a number of exciting enhancements to IBM Planning Analytics Workspace as well as fixes and updates to IBM PAX (Excel) and the system overall. Key highlights are the following:

Numbers formatting in IBM PA Workspace

The ability to set format directly from the front-end is being added. This makes it much easier for users to pick the right format in their specific views and reports. A set of pre-defined formats as well custom formatting options are available.

Drill-up on Visualization in IBM PA Workspace

A feature that allows drilling up on a visualization is finally available – until now drill-up was only possible using the “Undo” button, this feature will provide more flexibility in navigating and analyzing individual tables.

Additional technical enhancements to IBM PA Workspace

  • Ability to unload a cube from memory - this allows for temporary reduction of RAM use during times of high usage or issue resolution
  • Setting of thresholds and alerts for individual databases in the Administration page - this simplifies configuration and facilitates unique threshold and alert settings for each database
  • Combining system resource thresholds and alerts in a single configuration page - this simplifies configuration in all environments, both cloud and local, plus provides greater control in monitoring multiple agents in PA Local
