After meeting with Anaplan, the company’s finance team knew that the Smart Business Platform offered exactly what they were looking for and since implementing, Intel has gleaned four key benefits:
“Before Anaplan, we used to spend most of our time—actually, on average, about 70% of time—collecting and transforming data. We have really flipped that by having everything in Anaplan. We no longer have to collect data and are spending our time modeling and analyzing.”
- Easy transition. The finance team liked that the language and formulas used in spreadsheets is similar to Anaplan, making the adoption of the new tool easy.
- Self-service. The Intel team chose Anaplan because it is a business-driven application. Finance can build their own models and are not dependent on help from IT.
- Collaboration. Because Anaplan is in the cloud, users around the world are able to work together on the same model—allowing for true collaboration.
- Increased productivity. Intel Security is now able to update their data at any time and see the results trickle instantly across all of their models.
