tm1 8 administration
TM1 8: Administration

Objective: Provide a series of utilities to improve the management and administration of an application

  • Simple messaging & disconnect Clients
  • Browse Change Log; back out changes
  • Browse Message Log
  • Performance Statistics
  • Optimize Dimension Order
tm1 8 dynamic subsets and views
TM1 8: Dynamic Subsets and Views

Objective: Provide advanced user functionality in working with TM1

  • Dimension subsets defined as an MDX expression, rather than a fixed list
  • MDX recorder to help in definitions
  • Dimension based subsets (children of Europe)
  • Value based subsets based on views (top 10 etc.)
  • Available in cube viewer and ISB
tm1 8 replication improvements
TM1 8: Replication Improvements

Objective: Improve replication and synchronization to include more of the objects on the servers

  • Support of Views and Subsets
  • UI improvements
tm1 8 engine overhaul
TM1 8: Engine Overhaul

Objective: minimize the server RAM requirements

  • Currently the activation of feeders takes 8 bytes per cell on loading the server
  • Now feeders will take 1 bit per cell on server loading

– a 64 fold reduction in RAM

  • Memory will grow to 8 bytes per cell for every calculated cell actually used
tm1 8 new dimension editor
TM1 8: New Dimension Editor

Objective: Improve ability to work with large dimensions

  • Subset editor navigation & selection
  • Element Order control
tm1 8 rules tracer
TM1 8: Rules Tracer

Objective: To ease rule building and improve user understanding

  • Facility to display how a cell is calculated:
    • Rule formula that applies
    • cells that are used in the calculation
  • Rule developers can check the application and validity of rule formulas
  • Users can understand how a value was arrived at
  • Additional feeder tracers help in developing and validating feeder rules.
tm1 8 deferred updates
TM1 8: Deferred Updates

Objective: Significantly improves concurrent read/write performance

  • Collects updates in RAM at the server prior to commitment
  • Perspectives automatically defers DBSends
  • Turbo Integrator can batch updates and apply in”one shot”
tm1 8 drill through
TM1 8: Drill Through

Objective: Provide the ability to navigate straight from a cube cell to another cube view or to a relational table

  • Controlled and managed by the server
  • Extensions to TI
  • Relational grid in ISB, Cube Viewer display results
tm1 8 turbo integrator improvements
TM1 8: Turbo Integrator Improvements

Objective: Provide even better data acquisition and management capabilities for enterprise integration

  • Processes now can be assigned Read access to non-Admin users
  • Processes may be reordered inside of chores
  • The same process can be used multiple times in a chore
  • TI process now displays a view of the data being processed
  • Users can now save incomplete processes
  • Better error handling; minor errors are skipped and put in a log
  • New functions include: DimensionElementPrincipalName NumberToString StringToNumber CellsUpdateable CellPutProportionalSpread OnMinorErrorDoItemSkip
  • New DNLEV worksheet function
security revamp
Security Revamp
  • Rationalize Security Organization
  • Security Refresh
  • Cell Level Security
tm1 64 bit
TM1 64 bit

Objective: Effectively tackle much larger applications; “out-ROLAP the ROLAPs”

  • Removes the current 3MB (NT) 4MB (Unix) hard memory limit
  • Theoretically unlimited memory
  • Only limited by the amount of RAM
  • HPUX 11, Solaris and Windows 64 supported (8.1.1)
  • Itanium chip based as required
re designed installation
Re-designed Installation

Objective: Re-designed for ease of use and reduced in size for faster downloads.

  • Standard and custom installation options
  • Installation program help
  • Help system is available in printed form on web site
integrated login ldap support

dimension order optimization
Dimension Order Optimization

Objective: Improve memory utilization by re-ordering TM1 dimensions after cubes are built

  • Improves memory utilization
  • Eliminates dimension ordering guesses before cubes are built
  • Eliminates requirement to revise TM1 rules and TM1 Excel reports
continue isleaf functions plus subsets in rules
Continue, ISLEAF Functions plus Subsets in Rules

Objective: Enhances TM1 rule capabilities

  • Continue Function allows subsequent rule with the same Area definition to be executed.
  • ISLEAF Function returns 1 or 0 if a specified cell is a leaf cell.
  • Subsets in Rules facilitates single Area definition.
