LucasFilm forecasts production costs efficiently with analytics


With multiple operating divisions and disconnected spreadsheets, LucasFilm needed a financial forecasting solution that uses scheduling and other data to predict production costs. By utilizing IBM Cognos TM1, LucasFilm was able to better forecast the product costs and increased productivity across their organization.

Dave Higgins, Senior Business Systems Developer, LucasFilm, explains "Originally, it was always the spreadsheet, spreadsheet shuffle where we take, the forecast planning that was all spread out in different systems. TM1 allowed us to incorporate everything into a single system where we could pull in actuals and the forecast altogether and get a complete solution."
