Benefits of the Anaplan Platform include:
Anaplan’s cloud planning platform enables an organization to run virtually any planning process by connecting data, people, and plans in every part of a business. Connected planning can be achieved at any scale–from a single use case within one business unit to enterprise-wide connected planning across hundreds of processes, and everything in between. Anaplan’s platform is the most flexible, scalable, and collaborative cloud planning system in the world today.
Anaplan represents a game-changing leap beyond traditional business intelligence and enterprise performance management systems. Performance data about the past provides useful insights, but managers then quickly turn to the question “what should happen going forward?” Anaplan’s powerful modeling and calculation engine helps managers evaluate expected results from different decisions before acting upon them. This combination of backward-looking and forward-looking data is what is considered to be the “best data” for decision-making.
Anaplan’s platform provides large-scale collaborative planning and decision-making across complex processes. Metadata-level views of plans and the relationship between them enable the impacts of plan changes to ripple instantly to other affected areas of the business. Flexible role-based security levels ensure collaboration with confidence. Audit trail, model restore, and selective user access make it possible for safe and simultaneous planning in real time.
Anaplan’s platform boasts the world’s most powerful and flexible modeling and calculation engine, called Hyperblock. This in-memory engine enables the creation of detailed planning models that utilize all your data down to the transactional level (product SKU, stores, employees, etc.) for real-time impactful business decisions. Build plans to any level of granularity with many dimensions. You can think of it as “high-fidelity planning.”
Anaplan’s cloud platform is a modern, secure architecture designed to satisfy the mutual needs of business users and the IT department. Native Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and –industry-leading security features enable good governance for IT requirements, while business users are essentially self-sufficient in creating and maintaining models and planning processes. People experienced with Microsoft Excel are able to quickly learn Anaplan modeling, and operational managers can use simple interfaces to drive day-to-day their processes. The result is that large companies use Anaplan for complex enterprise-grade planning across thousands of users, with zero to minimal IT support required.
