Michael is one of the world’s foremost EPM experts, with more than 25 years in design and architecture. In 2006, Michael set out to design and create a new solution from the ground up that leveraged technology innovation. This vision became the Anaplan cloud platform for business users—enabling them to design, build, maintain, and manage their own applications—without any IT support. Prior to Anaplan, Michael was the lead architect in the design of the analyst modeling tool, which became the leading multi-dimensional modeling tool of the 1990s until acquired by Cognos. Michael holds Mathematics degree and a MSc in Computation from Oxford University.
