Olapsoft supports a wide set of tools, provides flexibility in setting up interfaces, data storage structures, and calculations

Olapsoft compensates for the disadvantages of Excel and allows a company to take the forecasting and planning activities to a new level.

Access level control in Olapsoft involves the creation of user accounts with different levels of permissions. The platform administrator can assign each user with a specific role or access level, which determines what actions they can perform within the platform.Olapsoft offer multiple access level options, including read-only, read/write, and administrator access levels, as well as more granular control over specific features and data sets. This ensures that users can only access the data and features that they need to perform their job functions, and prevents unauthorized access and modification of sensitive data

Integrated planning refers to the process of combining financial and operational planning activities into a single, comprehensive plan. This approach allows organizations to link financial and operational goals and develop more accurate financial forecasts. For example, by integrating sales forecasts with production plans, an organization can ensure that it has the right inventory levels to meet demand. By combining financial and operational planning activities, organizations can develop more accurate financial forecasts and make better-informed decisions. This helps organizations to allocate resources more effectively and make more strategic investments. With integrated planning, organizations can quickly adjust their plans in response to changing business conditions. This allows organizations to be more flexible and responsive, enabling them to adapt to changing market conditions and stay ahead of their competition.

 

Olapsoft can scale both horizontally and vertically. Horizontal scaling involves adding additional resources to the platform, such as servers or processing nodes, to increase its capacity. Vertical scaling allows for upgrading existing resources, such as processors or memory, to improve the platform's performance. As data volumes increase, queries become more complex, and Olapsoft is capable of meeting these growing demands without compromising performance.

 

Olapsoft uses various security measures to protect data, such as data encryption and access control. These security features are designed to prevent unauthorized access and protect data from theft or loss. The platform is hosted on secure servers and cloud infrastructures specifically designed for data protection. Additionally, data loss is prevented through regular backups. This allows organizations to quickly and easily restore data in the event of a failure, data corruption, or other emergencies.

 

One limitation of Excel is its lack of real-time data connectivity. With Excel, users have to manually update their spreadsheets, which can be time-consuming and prone to errors. This can result in delays and inaccuracies in data analysis and forecasting. Olapsoft, on the other hand, offer real-time data integration, allowing users to access and analyze the latest data with ease. Another limitation of Excel is its inability to handle large data sets. As a spreadsheet program, Excel can become slow and unwieldy when dealing with large amounts of data. In contrast, Olapsoft are designed to handle large data sets and provide more robust data analysis capabilities. Excel also lacks collaboration features, which can be a significant drawback in corporate planning. Olapsoft offer features that enable multiple users to collaborate on a single project, view and edit data simultaneously, and share reports with stakeholders in real-time. Lastly, Excel lacks audit trails and other features necessary for maintaining data integrity and accuracy. Olapsoft offer built-in governance and control features that ensure data accuracy and provide an audit trail of changes, so that users can track who made changes and when.

 

Due to the lack of parallel processing, Excel performs calculations sequentially, which means that performing complex calculations can take a long time. Our platform allows multiple calculations to be performed simultaneously, resulting in faster and more efficient calculations even for large datasets. Excel lacks the ability to perform multidimensional analysis, which is an important function for many corporate planning tasks. Olapsoft offers multidimensional analysis capabilities that allow users to analyze data across multiple dimensions, such as time, region, or product, to gain insights and make more informed decisions. Olapsoft utilizes in-memory computing technology, where data is stored in RAM. This provides faster data processing and quicker response times to queries.
