It has been a while since I did any serious posting. My off hours have been busy with summer activities (mostly drinking beer and mojitos on the back deck) and work has been consumed with our new planning solution. Any of you who have followed me know about my long and sordid history with planning solutions. To avoid the pains of the past we here at TGO Consulting decided to take matters into our own hands and over the past 6 months have been working on building our own solution.
I am very happy to report that a half-year of joy, frustration, awe, anger and a dozen other emotions has finally resulted in our first release. Below is our first semi-formal write-up for True Sky Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting. I am sure it will undergo some marketing transformations as we refine our message, but it should give you a good overview of what we have accomplished.
