TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

A Platform for the Future

Our next generation applications are built on the Planixs Graphite Platform, which enables technological innovation that is simply impossible with yesterday’s technology products. Graphite extends the boundaries of analytical power, crunching thousands of calculations in seconds to provide real-time insight.

Applications powered by Graphite harness the power of the cloud in ways traditional software can’t. Graphite applications stay ahead of the trailing pack by using the full range of benefits that come hand‑in-hand with cloud computing: access to unlimited resources, instant scalability and real-time analytics.

Visualisation

Advanced reporting capabilities make sense of large datasets through interactive interfaces.

Decision Automation

Business rules are captured enabling decisions to be automated.

Optimisation

Models optimise decisions, maximising sales, profit and revenue.

Predictive Analytics

Statistical scenarios and sophisticated models predict future patterns.

Enterprise Spreadsheeting

Real time updates to enable online collaboration.

Smart Database

The Smart Database automatically manages parallelisation and concurrency.

With a cloud infrastructure you have flexibility and scale like never before. Under and over provisioning should no longer force restrictions on your capabilities, with our technology you have boundless potential.

Planixs software is optimised ground-up specifically for cloud computing. Cloud computing has revolutionised how planning, analytics and optimisation of big data enhances decision making at pace. Our on demand

applications unlock business potential previously unachievable without significant capital investment in hardware and software. Cloud computing has won over the CIOs of some of the world’s largest organisations because of its rapid deployment and low price-tag, relative to traditional infrastructure models. It also means IT organisations no longer have to worry about the complexity of systems that have grown internally.

Rapid and Low-Risk Deployment

Traditional software require installation and infrastructure deployment, which can take many months. SaaS solutions can be rolled out in a fraction of the time, all you need is a web browser and internet access, and you’re ready to go!

Business Value

Due to the monthly subscription model of SaaS the supplier must consistently deliver business value every day or the subscription would be turned off. This is a critical difference between one-off traditional software purchases versus the SaaS model.

Big Data Delivered at Scale

SaaS applications delivered on a cloud computing infrastructure can support big data requirements with massive scale. Being able to rapidly increase computing capacity automatically means consistent performance and never missing out on peak demand.

Zero Infrastructure

When delivering business applications via SaaS, the complexity of the underlying IT infrastructure is handled by your provider. Users do not have to worry about infrastructure, support or maintenance needs, we take care of all of this through our 24×7 coverage model.

Holistic IT Delivery and Ownership

All the components required to deliver the SaaS sit in one place with accountability sat with the supplier. Traditional software approaches require multiple third parties delivering and supporting through the lifecycle of the solution. There is “one throat to choke”.

Affordability

Applications deployed on the cloud are typically procured at a fraction of the cost of traditional packages. With no costly upfront charge or maintenance, just a monthly fee, (inclusive of software, support, hosting, upgrades and maintenance) capital can be used for other critical projects.

Do you wish your business was more agile? Would insight at your fingertips release untapped potential within your organisation?

Our Graphite platform enables enterprises to act on insight and gain a better understanding of business performance in real-time. Sophisticated data mining, statistical analysis and predictive modelling enable more accurate, automated

decisions based on facts, allowing your company to react to insight in seconds. “What-if” scenario modelling and predictive analysis reveal the impact of a huge range of potential options as an input to final decision making.

Simply put, with our technology you can solve problems your company has not been able to before, or didn’t even know existed!

Workbooks

Manipulation of data becomes second nature within the Graphite Workbook Framework. Workbooks enable ‘what-if’ scenarios to be built in a ring-fenced sandpit, safe in the knowledge that your master data remains untouched

Dynamic Visualisation

A rich, graphical front end provides users with an easy way to visualise data. A customisable user interface means clients can produce meaningful representations of data and spot trends and anomalies quickly to get decisions made faster.

Enterprise Spreadsheeting

The core Graphite engine combines a set of advanced enterprise spreadsheeting capabilities with the ability to navigate through big datasets with optimal performance. The interface allows pivoting, train of thought analysis, data snapshots and the use of hierarchical structures to dissect data based on the user’s needs.

Big Data Engine

Graphite solutions are built on and for cloud infrastructures and deliver insight across a wide range of significant business challenges in selected industries. Through its advanced analytics engine and big data capabilities Graphite can outperform the competition, meaning you can get to the heart of a problem and take action in seconds.

Want to increase sales, reduce costs or maximise margin? With so many factors in play, Graphite can recommend which to change, and by how much.

Graphite is built upon advanced cloud technology and a science engine that incorporates the latest advances in statistics coming out of leading academic institutions, delivering the most accurate results to our clients. The optimised algorithms and application design means calculations and simulations that would normally take hours to return are executed in seconds.

Our platform uses advanced solving technology to run multiple simulations of your business objective (e.g. optimise my annual spend) to model a range of scenarios that aid your decision making process.

Decision Support

The vast majority of the current technology used in decision support is spreadsheet based and rapidly becomes unwieldy, complex and slow. Multiple versions of the truth and a lack of any optimisation provide a very weak set of capabilities.

Graphite changes this by having an unified technology with one version of the truth which provides your business with data driven optimised recommendations. It uses cloud technology to optimise performance and encourage collaboration as decisions can be made from anywhere with a network connection.
