PlanIQ Calculation

Hi All,


I have created some scenarios for PlanIQ & everything is working well. Output file is getting generated as per different algorithm etc.


Just wanted to know, what kind of calculation is being performed for these algorithm - I mean what is the calculation matrix for Anaplan AutoML vs Amazon AutoML. Is there a way to find it out?

For the same dataset, I'm having different forecast which is expected because I have used different algorithm but how the calculation is happening basis on quantile etc. & how to identify the best forecast 


One more thing, I have 2 past & 2 future years, however the time interval is only reflecting for 8 months (MAX). Is there a way to increase that?






Great question. A lot of people have asked this. To be honest, the AWS forecasts are fairly well documented on their website - you can start here. Some are more obvious than others, like an ARIMA is just moving average that looks backwards. And CNN_QR for example, is proprietary but really its the same as the one you would use with R or Python. Here's a place you can start your research.
