About Anaplan

Anaplan’s disruptive platform creates a hub for collaborative planning and execution from corporate level plans all the way to the store or account level. Anaplan delivers a high rate of user adoption and engagement by combining self-service power with true usability. Anyone, anywhere, anytime can engage on models and plans from any device. Anaplan’s unified platform enables cross-functional planning and brings distributed, on-the-ground expertise to corporate plans—delivering top-down, bottoms-up alignment.
In addition, Anaplan supports a growing collection of plug-n-play apps for common use cases. This app catalog of pre-built models dramatically speeds up time to value for business users by eliminating hours of model building.


Key benefits of Anaplan

Unlike traditional planning tools or spreadsheets that stall with overhead data as they scale, Anaplan delivers optimal performance no matter the data volume and model complexity. Instead of tracking relationships at a cell formula and dependency level, our HyperBlock Architecture tracks dependencies at the line item. As the platform records your updates, it has the intelligence to update only those cells that have changed. So, as your data volumes scale, complexity doesn’t.

Anaplan sales premium cloud computing software

The best thing about Anaplan software is that it offers multiple services to the larger establishment to develop the features according to their needs. So, this tool provides immediate and hassle-free results. Even though, you can design a whole model within a few hours using this software.

Pros

First and foremost, this software is very easy to understand and it is exciting to work on excel using this system. So, the drill-down property makes it easy to troubleshoot the errors while operating functions. In addition to this, Anaplan sales also offer the “fat fingering” key to remove the data easily. It is easy to integrate with other systems and build the best product development team for users.

Cons

Anaplan is a good tool to work with but it has some limitations which make it less demanding. This software doesn't go well with the high integration functions and doesn't offer a wide range of event workflows. Moreover, even at high granularity, this tool doesn't facilitate good report analytical services.

It is an easily affordable tool and has powerful computation features. Additionally, you can run various inventories, planning, scaling, and auditing functions here without any trouble. You can get maximum customer support while encountering any issue. On the whole, Anaplan is leading the way in success and many features are improving day by day. I would highly recommend you to give this tool a chance and you will love working on it. Try it out and enjoy the easy operational strategies.

Pros

There are enormous advantages that this software provides. The best thing about this software is the real-time calculation. It is easy to set up in the system and operate. Moreover, it shows instant results and offers every degree business a good accommodation. There are multiple customization options available for the user's facility.

Cons

Anaplan doesn't support reporting analytics and there is a need for large collaborative organizations for carrying out the execution. Thus, there comes lots of problems while storing data and scheduling plans. The creators should look upon these issues and update the features. Anaplan shows many buffer issues while editing cells and there come lots of problems while computing large data. It is quite easy to install in the system but not easy to operate for an average user. Complete training is required to understand and execute functions here.

Anaplan is a game changer, but not without flaws

Reviewed on 14/10/2015

Pros

Product - it's adaptability...you can build almost anything you want with the platform. Simple replacements of existing excel models take only hours to replicate.
Vendor - the constant upgrades to the system. 3-5 upgrades every year, and I have had a few of my personal requests added to the road map and eventually included in an upgrade, so they definitely listen to their customers on what to work on next.

Cons

Product - Metadata management. Within a single model it is great, but when you share the same metadata across models, it is really cumbersome to build the models to talk to each other constantly.
Vendor - the pricing model is bad, they get you in the door with a small workspace that quickly runs out due to not accurately estimating the size you would need, and then charge thousands of dollars per GB of extra space to fit what you wanted to do in the first place.

Anaplan is a huge time saver

Reviewed on 12/02/2018

Pros

Before Anaplan, we were on excel documents that required many versions and iterations. We started with financial planning as a model and have since expanded into other solutions for issues that have arisen. The goal is to continue to plug new models into this tool, like many power users I've seen at Anaplan conferences, in order to get all of our data on one platform.

Cons

Initial set up requires a lot of learning and time. Their training session is several days and still requires additional follow up work and communication with their implementation team. Graphs and data visualization is also far lacking compared with Tableau or even Excel.
