EPM - Reimagine Your Planning  and Forecasting Process Using  Auto-Predict

Thank you to Shankar Viswanathan for his detailed Presentation on this topic.Check out the examples and information!

What is Auto-Predict

  • Prediction defined and run ahead of time
  • Save predictions in selected scenario/version
  • Inherits all features of Predictor Engine

Predictive Planning vs Auto Predict

  • Both use the same Predictor engine
  • Auto Predict can process thousands of members (i.e. intersections) in one run  Auto Predict automatically writes the prediction results back to the cube
  • Auto Predict data can be persisted, reused or archived

How Is It Used

  • Set up Auto Predict using new slice definition interface
  • Automate the Prediction process
    • Scheduled and run as jobs
    • Run using REST and Groovy (20.09) 
    • EPM Automate (20.10)


  • With all Hybrid enabled Planning Apps
    • All new SKU Planning instances – Standard or Enterprise except Freeform app type
    • Hybrid enabled EPBCS apps
    • Freeform Apps support in roadmap; due to Predictive Planning dependency on required dimensions (Scenario, Version, Year, Period)
    • Not available for legacy PBCS apps since hybrid cubes are not available for PBCS
