From its very first days in 1983, TM1 was built for storing data and structures in RAM instead of disk. Thanks to the early core principles of TM1 it is today the most flexible, reliable and highest performing functional database on the market.

It allows interactive budgeting, forecasting, and what-if-simulations, Reporting and Analysis as well as performs advanced calculations, allocations and data transformations. The TM1 Functional Database provides the same level of flexible modelling capability as Excel, but allows thousands of users, terabytes of data in a version controlled secured enterprise solution while maintaining ownership either centralized or fully in the hands of Finance super users
