What do Gartner, Forrester, and IDC have in common? They all named Anaplan a planning leader.
While imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Anaplan is the one true pioneer in uniting people, data, and plans to move business forward.
Connected Planning. We introduced the concept in 2017 and have never looked back. Now, the market has caught up to our innovative vision and has adopted our strategy of helping enterprises transform how they see, plan, and run their businesses. And while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Anaplan was the first to recognize, early on, the need to connect financial and operational planning for faster and more confident enterprise-wise decision-making.
Gartner defines the emerging category of extended planning and analysis (XP&A) as “an enterprise planning strategy that combines and extends financial and operational planning by using the same composite vendor platform and architecture. xP&A solutions offered by vendors are capable of delivering benefits such as improved performance, collaboration, workflow management, analytics, governance, and ease of use across financial and operational planning.”
Forrester describes the evolving EPM space of DOP&A as, “an applications category comprising an integrated set of reporting, analytical, and planning applications that helps organizations develop growth strategies and optimize business performance in a digital-first world.”
