What do Gartner, Forrester, and IDC have in common? They all named Anaplan a planning leader.
Still using Oracle Hyperion for financial planning? Using a rigid legacy system is about as reliable as seeking insights from a fortune teller. Only Anaplan delivers the real-time intelligence, predictions, and planning your finance teams need. No crystal ball required.
Let’s face it: Oracle’s solution had its day. But now support for its on-premises Hyperion application is ending, and it’s time to give your business the upgrade it deserves. Now you have a choice: Stick with the outdated software that limits your agility or give your organization the power to see, plan, and run your business for what is next.
Looking at Anaplan vs. Oracle, Anaplan costs less to deploy, upgrade, and maintain. Plus, it accelerates value by freeing resources to do more, faster.
Create what if scenarios, stress your assumptions, and analyze strategic impacts, alongside predictive forecasts—giving you speed and confidence in your path forward.
Build a single source of truth across finance and operations with built-in dashboards, management reporting, and real-time analytics for continuous forecasting. All on one singular cloud platform.
No matter what you call this type of planning—connected, extended, or xP&A—it’s precisely what modern finance teams
need to maximize performance. And it’s what industry leaders are already doing.

Anaplan’s flexibility with model building is a key differentiator for us.
We were also looking for a tool that gave us a high level of user experience, particularly with dashboard navigation and data visualization. Being business friendly with very little IT dependency was also a key consideration after being on Oracle Hyperion for a long time. Anaplan was the only vendor that satisfied all of these criteria.
Over time, Oracle Hyperion has become more of an administrative tool than a cutting-edge enterprise planning tool.
With Anaplan, navigating between cost centers and toggling between dashboards quickly and easily is a huge plus—and the ability to update various cost centers is very impressive.
