At Hub 16, an IT Finance director was telling me that he received a second promotion a little over a year after his previous promotion. When I asked how he managed to make that happen, he quipped that Anaplan made him smart by allowing him to adapt and focus on the important things within the business. This was strangely coincidental as Anaplan announced the Smart Business Platform™ the next morning at the Hub16 keynote. In this blog, I’ll summarize what the Smart Business Platform™ means for you and for your business.

What is “smart” planning and what is “smart” about Anaplan’s platform?

Cindy Jutras, a widely recognized expert in analyzing the impact of enterprise applications on business performance, wrote an excellent report on exactly this subject.

“Nobody wakes up in the morning and says, ‘I need a planning engine.’ You wake up with a problem on your mind,” noted Jutras. “The most important benefit derived from taking a planning platform approach is that it allows you to create a complete and connected plan for your business.”

How does the Smart Business Platform™ make you, the business leader, “smart”?

It allows you to quickly analyze and learn from the real-time data, enabling you to adapt and deploy valuable resources to the right place when it’s needed. It allows you to collaborate in real time across both the organization and your ecosystem. It empowers organizations with a full granular dataset to enable informed and advanced decision-making. Last but not least, instead of starting from scratch during the implementation, you can take advantage of the pre-built applications that can accelerate your time to value.
