Christmas Message from the Directors

First of all, I hope this message finds you, your colleagues, family and friends, safe and well.

In what has been a truly exceptional and unforeseen year the team at Budgeting Solutions would like to express their thanks to all the key workers that kept essential services going this year. We also express our thanks to you, our customers, who have continued to work with us – completely remotely!

Against the backdrop of this disruption IBM has released two substantial updates to the solutions we support; being IBM Planning Analytics Workspace 2.0.57 and IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1.7.

For our cloud customers the transition will be gradual, with the ability to preview the new functionality before general release at the end of the first quarter. For our on-premise customers, we can upgrade you to the latest version starting from today. During January and February we will be running a series of webinars on what these upgrades actually mean and we will update you as and when these sessions are organised.

This year many of you have benefited from our integrated Balance Sheet & Cash Flow Application – in essence replacing what can be a manually intensive or fraught Excel process and integrating this into your modelling environment. For those of you that haven’t used this application but would like to explore what it can do, watch this webinar recording and if you have any questions please let us know –

Finally, as we look ahead into the New Year, we will be rolling out our new training courses (which can be held remotely on Teams) and introducing a couple more applications that we think could add significant value to your current investments.

Exciting times ahead and we look forward to meeting up with you in “3D” at some point in 2021.

Thank you again for your continued support – stay safe and enjoy the festivities!
