Upgrade and Migration from Cognos TM1 to IBM Planning Analytics in the Public Sector

The project was a migration of an existing Cognos TM1 environment to a new IBM Planning Analytics environment. The main reason for the upgrade was to stay ahead of the end of support of Cognos TM1. They needed both technical support to do the installation/configuration, but also someone driving and leading the project autonomously. 

Included in the migration was also the implementation of the new Planning Analytics for Excel (PAX) and Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW).

The full migration included the installation of the new products on several Windows Server 2016 and RedHat 7 Linux machines, next to the installation it was also needed to migrate all their existing models to the new environment and reconfigure them to work optimal in the new IBM Planning Analytics. This also includes the full setup in their Citrix environment to be able to access the different products.

Next to the standard installation, migration and configuration of the existing environments, it was also needed to train the end-users in the new application coming with Planning Analytics, being Planning Analytics for Excel (PAX) and the Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW).
