You can leverage ValQ to support several business cases that need you to perform scenario analysis & what-if simulations. Use cases supported include business modeling, planning, budgeting, periodic re-forecasting, variance reporting, sensitivity analysis and more.
In addition, you can also leverage ValQ to build KPI dashboards without simulation capabilities.
The value driver tree is highly configurable with no need for coding. The hierarchy of nodes, the calculations involved at each level – which defines the relationship between nodes – can all be configured without need for any programming scripting.
Absolutely. You can compare, save and share the results of your scenarios.
ValQ comes with an embedded calculation engine that handles all calculations locally (front-end) on-the-fly. Once data is loaded into the tree for the first time, all further interactions & what-if analyses are handled locally without any requests going back to the server or the data source. As a result any changes due to simulations are updated in a fraction of a second.
For optimal performance, we suggest that you have a maximum of 5,000 driver nodes in a model. We also have a built-in restriction to ensure that a parent node does not have more than 250 child driver nodes immediately under it (it could, however, have more than 250 descendants – children of children nodes).
If you would like to exceed these limits, reach out to us for a custom build.
No, ValQ helps you build interactive & dynamic top-down planning models. These are intended to complement your investments on bottom-up planning platforms and deliver agility to your planning process.
With ValQ, you can model scenarios on the fly, and your executives can directly play around & interact with the models with minimal reliance on a IT analyst or consultant.
After a few initial iterations, discussions & feedback, you can subsequently leverage your planning software for a more detailed fine-tuning, configuration and validation. This saves a lot of time & effort. Your business meetings would also be more effective using ValQ as executives can receive instantaneous feedback on changes to scenarios.
