Data visualization has become the de facto standard for modern business intelligence. The successes of the three leading vendors in the BI space, Power BI, Tableau and Qlik, which heavily emphasize visualization, has moved other vendors toward a more visual approach in their software. Virtually all BI software has strong data visualization functionality.

TMVGate Version 2.0.1 is a purpose-built gateway and a cost-effective solution. It allows you to unlock your data in TM1 and Planning Analytics to the world of data visualization and advance data analytics.

Driven with an open format design concept, TMVGate is capable of bridging TM1 and Planning Analytics data to market leading visualization tools such as Power BI, Tableau, Qlikview, Qlik Sense, Power Query, Power View, SSRS, MicroStrategy, R Studio and many more.

With a lightweight server based architecture, TMVGate does not require any software or driver on the client workstation, making it ideal for widespread deployment.

TMVGate returns Cube view (private or public) and Dimension Hierarchies data in real time streaming in either the JSON, XML, HTML or CSV (TXT or Pipe) format via a simple HTTP or HTTPS call.
The various data streaming formats have been validated with the visualization tools mentioned, without the need for any additional scripting.

The cost-effective TMVGate has helped customers in Australia, New Zealand, US, UK, Canada, Germany to deliver dashboards and visual rich reports.
Customers were impressed with the extreme ease of implementation with existing TM1 and Planning Analytics cubes and hierarchies. It just works out of the box!

Sounds good! A question though. Does it mean that the customer will then need to purchase TM1, a BI software e.g. Qlikview and TM1 Gateway (your 3rd party tool)?

Apologies for not understanding this product well. What is the advantage of this set-up versus having a combination of TM1 and Cognos BI?

I don't think I will want to compare Cognos BI and the rest of the tools such as Tableau, Qlikview, QlikSense. There is a reason why Tableau and Qlik is well accepted in the Analyics and Visualization market segment.

You can download a non-commercial version of Qlikview and Qliksense to do some evaluation on your own. For Tableau, you can download a trial copy.

For those currently using Excel 2013, you can explore using Power Query, Power View, Power Pivot which is a powerful Analytics/Visualization tools and it is free. Microsoft PowerBI is another new free tools that you can tap to.

All these tools work well with our gateway.

Now back to the gateway product, it is developed to bridge TM1 data to an open data format which is well accepted by these Visualization products. With these open data format, you are no longer bound by specific drivers or Reporting/Analytics/BI/Visualization products.

As this is developed specifically for TM1, yes you do need a valid TM1 license. To be specific, as we are using TM1 API, existing TM1 named user license is sufficient and you do not need to purchase additional licenses.

The gateway can be further extended to act as a server to server interface bridge and a sample setup is provided for such requirements.

Do contact us if you need more information.

This looks great! How do you plan to deal with security though?

Security is based on existing CAM or TM1 security.
We have also tested it with TM1 Cloud and you can have the option to install the gateway on premise and access TM1 on the cloud.
This will provide customers who are using cloud with another option instead of TM1Web and Cafe.
