Unraveling TM1 : Lesser Known Facets – Part A

Posted by Jyothi Lakshmidas on August 6, 2018

No matter how much we think we know about TM1, there are always these set of conditions that make you think “what-if there was a better way”??!!

One of the most neglected and least prioritised activity among the grand scheme of development, in my opinion, is applying correct formats to data, both in cubes as well as standard web reports. In all fairness, if you’re one of my kind (occasionally-fall-into-a-slack type) who often miss out on this detail, then you have arrived at the right place.
