Autodesk’s journey toward connected planning
Discover how Autodesk has used Anaplan to architect a faster, more transparent and more connected end-to-end planning process across multiple teams (Sales Finance, FP&A and Marketing) through centralized data and drivers and process automation. The current iteration of Autodesk’s planning process within Anaplan contains multiple connected models. Each one was designed to ease the pain points caused by dispersed manual and siloed processes and to overcome obstacles that were insurmountable without a connected housed on a single, cloud-based platform.

From Anaplan to AXAplan! How connected planning is growing within AXA Bank Belgium and around the AXA world.
Forecasting the financial results of a company is becoming a constant exercise throughout the year. Moving towards a customer centric business while driving it in line with the financial strategy are both key to success. Moreover, it is critical to manage your financial KPIs as a bank within the boundaries of the regulator. In this context, connecting all these process elements through a digital multi-dimensional system resulted in an agile financial planning cycle for which Anaplan can be used. Anaplan is increasingly allowing for translating excel-driven labor-intensive processes into real-time reporting across departments.
