Ad-hoc Analysis

▲ Analytics and Reporting in Planview Enterprise

Catalog Image.png Ad-hoc Analysis (formerly known as Insight Analytics) is targeted at users who want to carry out data exploration and analysis. It provides modeled data sources, into which data from the Planview Enterprise One transactional database is processed. These data sources are in the form of either Tabular Models or OLAP cubes. Two different consumption options are available for these model and cube datasources:
  • Users can connect to the models and cubes using an Add-In in Microsoft Excel and use the pivot table capabilities in Microsoft Excel to analyze the data that is staged in the model/cube
  • Power BI can be used to consume Ad-Hoc Analysis Tabular Model data (Planview Enterprise 14 and Enterprise One onwards)

These out-of-the-box cubes need to be aligned, and potentially extended, to ensure that they contain the data required for analysis and visualization In order for customers to see their configured data points in Ad-Hoc analysis the cubes/models must be aligned, a process carried out by the Planview Consulting Global Reporting Services (GRS) team Ad-Hoc analysis visualizations created using Excel can be shared with other stakeholders
