March 28, 2008 –Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), the collective bargaining representative for all active Major League Baseball players, selected IBM Cognos TM1 Executive Viewer to help analyze data.


The MLBPA assists the approximately 1,200 members and their agents with the analysis of player performance statistics. IBM Cognos TM1 Executive Viewer, being implemented with the help of Cognos partner Decision Systems, will provide hundreds of agents with self-service views and reports. The solution will also enable the agents to perform ad hoc analysis on different scenarios with nearly immediate answers.  


IBM Cognos TM1 Executive Viewer provides users real-time Web access to online application processing (OLAP) databases for ad hoc analysis as well as distributed reporting. Power users and non-power users can gain insight into business by exploring data from any perspective, generating graphs and charts and reporting results and options.


“Our analysis of player performance is as complex and dynamic as the work of high-powered business analysts in Fortune 500 companies, and we need to use the same robust, flexible interface to achieve reliable results,” said Doyle Pryor, assistant general counsel of the MLBPA.  “Conducting complex analysis in real time allows us to improve our planning processes and IBM Cognos TM1 Executive Viewer enables the agents themselves to view reports and perform almost limitless what-if scenarios for further analysis of the data.”
