The Revenge of TM1 Web

TM1 Web has been one of the main alternative user interfaces to Excel for planning and forecasting applications even since the release as early as back in 1997. This old friend has allowed business users to deploy web applications that can be easily created in spreadsheets.

TM1 Web has never been better! It now comes in IBM Planning Analytics with a modern look and feel, faster websheet load and scrolling, conditional formatting enhancements and iPad support. TM1web also uses several workspace components giving a seamlessly user experience throughout Planning Analytics.
