Re: Experience with PAW and its future prospects

My loathing of everything to do with PAW is well known, but also not germane to the issue. I have Arc. My company wouldn't pay for it so I pay for it out of my own little pocket. Oh gee, it works without Docker and connection strings and running endless command line scripts. And it works really, REA...

Re: RFE : PAW should be part of IBMs DR strategy for their cloud offering.

I had missed a few posts in this forum and was going through the still-red ones while waiting for something to install. (No, not PAW, don't be silly... I'd be too busy typing arcane script names into command windows and downloading cr@p from external sites if I was doing that.) Anyhoo, I went to vot...

Oh well... you reigned supreme on Planet Dumb Twit, but it was the Faceplant vote that sunk you. Good effort, though.

Re: Fix Pack Releases: PA2 / V11 Series

Re: Free Server Monitoring Tool other than TM1Top

I can recommend Pulse from Cubewise, but it's not free (as noted above). I would second that. It's not necessarily the most intuitive tool to suck the most advanced features from, but it does HAVE a lot of advanced features including ones that are more powerful / flexible than anything that IBM has...

Guys, The guy I'm against has got everybody he knows voted on Facebook so it's turned more in to popularity contest rather than a build contest unfortunately.

Re: Age Calculation based on DOB

Hi, The need for this is to drive payroll calculations/forecasts. So while it doesn't have to be 100% accurate I would rather not have the conversation with users about why it isn't! Because the DOB was already being held as a text attribute in dd/mm/yyyy format I wanted to calculate the age based ...

Re: Age Calculation based on DOB

Yes, of course but I was going on the assumption that the OP wanted age in years, not fractional years. Using 365 would be accurate except for 1 day every four years. When doing a DOB calculation, why would one ever want to use fractional years ? Put differently, I was born January 19,1981. So I tu...

Re: TM1 Perspectives support for Office 365 & Excel 2019

Thanks for the info! So it seems like from what you're saying, that TM1 Perspectives can work with O365, even though the official company line from IBM is that "it's tba" (presumably because they see it as a legacy module and want to push PaX instead..??) Certainly that would be their preference, b...

Re: Transfer of data between servers

I don't think something like this will happen. They want to get rid of TI and not improve it... In the interview that I did with Hubert he stated straight out that that won't be happening in the next version; it's something further down the road. In any case, this isn't really about TI as such, it'...

Transfer of data between servers

This isn't one of mine, but one that I just noticed in this week's incarnation of the RFE system: TM1 does not a user friendly and easy mechanism to transfer data between different TM1 servers. Currently there are 2 options, but none of them can be properly used: 1 - Use Replication to transfer and ...

Re: Local Backup

In terms of the Enterprise solutions; last time I checked the default comes with 64gb of RAM and 200gb of disk space included in the user licence pricing. 200 gig does seem more reasonable than 2 for anything serious. It's still squeezy with big data, but it's viable. Then with regards to the disk ...

Re: Local Backup

No idea how IBM charges for storage, or even if. Anybody know? At Enterprise level I think it'll be "how much can you afford"? It's "contact us for pricing", not unsurprisingly. In Australia for PA On Demand , it's $AU55.66 / month for each user plus $AU6.96 / month for each 2GB (yes, GIGAbyte) con...
