Hi all,

does anybody, who worked closely with TM1, experience with Anaplan?

Which tool is in your opinion better for controller/finance people?

Anaplan vs. TM1

here is an article from IBM Advanced Business Partner company, dated October 2018:
http://bempartners.com/cognos-tm1-vs-an ... omparison/

and another article from IBM Partner company, dated September 2019:
https://blog.octanesolutions.com.au/ibm ... comparison

why I am asking? I am listening to this new podcast Excel Elites with Gavin Allen (CPA accountant from UK), and they only mention Anaplan as planning tool, no mentioning of TM1:

It really depends on what problem you are trying to solve. Anaplan does less but does it better.

Quite similar to Planning / Adaytum which isn't surprising considering it's the same developers. It has features that are nice but some issues, including (as you hinted) scalability.
