According to research from KPMG1, 40 percent of companies want to change their HR structure in 2016. These changes might come in the form of creating an authentic company culture, building inspiring and engaging workplaces, or ensuring career development opportunities for employees. In just a few weeks, over 8,000 HR leaders will gather at HR Tech in Chicago to discuss these business priorities and other topics around workforce innovations to explore ways that HR can be elevated within the enterprise.
Anaplan is looking forward to joining in these discussions and sharing how HR professionals, like Tableau, are optimizing their workforce planning strategy through the use of Anaplan. Prior to Anaplan, Tableau had a lot of complexities to manage with its own data—a variety of market segments combined with sales people in overlapping geographies meant that Tableau needed something more powerful than spreadsheets to maintain control of its data. Now, Tableau is able to connect existing HRIS applications and data through the Anaplan platform resulting in an 80 percent decrease in the number of hours spent per week maintaining data.
Tableau rolled out Anaplan for sales planning, headcount planning, quota, and territory assignments. Wyatt Albertson, Senior Manager of Sales Strategy and Planning at Tableau, described their Anaplan implementation best: “It was mind-blowing how fast we were able to get up and running.”
