What is Anaplan?

The Anaplan platform connects teams within your finance department and across the organisation – enabling you to look beyond the numbers.

By connecting finance to other business unit plans, your company can improve forecast accuracy, reduce cycle times, and gain deeper business insights. It’s the strategic tool finance needs to pioneer a new age of connected planning.

How does The Anaplan Platform work?

Anaplan’s cloud planning platform enables an organisation 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.
