Post-event performance analysis. Forward scenario simulations. Cross-function visibility. Web reporting and dashboards.

Ready out-of-the-box. Leverage numerous preconfigured templates, models and reports. Utmost configuration flexibility to configure your own custom models. No development.

Integrate forecasting, risk and optimization to your decision making.

24/7 QR Cloud version is a ready-for-use alternative. No software installation.

Solutions designed and priced for any firm seeking cost-effective robust and flexible advanced planning and risk analytics that actually work and don’t require lengthy implementation nor large consultant and maintenance teams.

Overcome SAP HANA’s shortcomings:

  • In-memory analytics in SAP Hana or Anaplan lead to costly custom developments and myriads of instabilities and limitations.

  • In-memory analytics can’t be effective as they mix data, modeling and computational tiers, and force you into one-off custom sequel and mathematical script coding by expensive consultants. Models created in such mixed-scripts can’t be tested independently nor maintained outside your implementation. You can’t use pre-existing industry standard analytics libraries or high level languages. These have to be executed externally and results uploaded.

  • There are limitations in table size and rows in-memory. It is naive to subject complex analytics to such limitations. E.g., the following exceed in-memory analytics capacity: directed AI machine learning, Monte Carlo simulations, evolutionary and nonlinear optimization.

  • No automated plug & play advanced analytics. Defining integrated scenario, risk and optimization models exceed in-memory capacity and would require extensive custom development to begin with.

Dynamic Planning and Portfolio Modeling

  • Organize the transactions, positions or services of any Business Function and Industry, into multiple nested portfolios via filtering.

  • Custom indicators for forecast and risk analysis can be defined in a user friendly mathematical wizard.

  • Financial examples. Financial portfolios, assets or supply chain indicators, e.g., detailed cash flow, P&L, value, exposure, regulatory risk, liquidity (LCR) or capital (CAR).

  • Non-financial examples. Student retention or graduation rates across portfolios of educational programs, degrees and facilities. Healthcare service coverage and effectiveness across portfolios of patients and assets, e.g., HR, equipment and facilities. Return, market share, segmentation and resource allocations in marketing and sales. Operational indicators across production and supply chains.

  • Valuation and forecasting of indicators are combined with user defined stress and what-if-scenarios as described below.

  • Currencies and units can be switched on the fly during valuation and forecasting.

  • QR Planning & Portfolio Dashboard. Interactive display of forecasts and scenarios across portfolio layers and forward timeframes (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly), in curves and table format. Drill down to display marginal forecasts at any desired portfolio layer, or roll up valuation to automatically aggregate values across portfolios.

Stress & What-if-Scenario Analysis

  • Custom stress and scenarios are modeled as combinations of adverse and favorable shocks on internal quantities, e.g., volumes, and external factors, e.g., market rates and prices.

  • Stress & what-if-scenarios are defined as shocks induced on all individual components of transactions or positions, and their aggregated portfolio values. This is done by simply typing mathematical formulas in a user friendly editor, and assembling them into complex stresses.

  • Stress scenarios can be defined as shocks on internal quantities such as volumes and values. E.g., 15% increase or loss on capacity, supply or demand. Buy-sell positions of some instruments. Haircuts (percentages or amounts) induced on any holdings, market value or cash flow.

  • Stress scenarios can be defined as shocks on external factors, e.g., market curves or rates, interest rates, FX, CPI and prices.

  • Multiple what-if-scenarios can be combined to explore a range of scenarios, e.g., by severity from mild to critical. Once a scenario is created, it becomes automatically activated throughout planning, forecasting and performance analysis. QR Planning & Portfolio Dashboard is automatically reconfigured to display the forecasted scenarios.
