At Anaplan, our aim is to make the world better by connecting organizations and people so business leaders can make better-informed decisions.
From small spaces…
Working in a stone barn in York, England, our Founder Michael Gould set out in 2006 to solve the thorny problems of conventional planning tools, including difficult collaboration, scattered data sources, and inflexible modeling and calculation.
…come big ideas.
The result: the powerful, patented modeling technology that is the foundation of the Anaplan platform. Endlessly flexible and scalable, it’s used worldwide for financial planning, budgeting and analysis; demand and supply chain planning; sales compensation and territory management; and other enterprise-wide planning needs. The cloud-native Anaplan platform connects data, people, and plans and puts it all in the hands of business users. Anaplan’s strong technology foundation helps organizations re-imagine planning in today’s world. That’s why we’re defining the new age of connected planning.
The innovation continues.
The Anaplan platform offers a new approach to planning. To enable collaboration, the platform was built in the cloud, for the cloud. To address exploding data volume and variety, including data from unstructured and online sources, it leverages standards-based data integration that can bring in data from any source. To meet real-time modeling and calculation demands, the platform combines the benefits of cube, columnar, and cell-based frameworks with an in-memory modeling environment and a multi-threaded calculation engine.
On that solid foundation, Anaplan has added data visualization capabilities, flexible encryption for enhanced security, application lifecycle management (ALM) to ensure real-world success, and tools to help you understand how changes to data sources and planning models interact and impact each other, downstream and upstream. And we’re just getting started.
