Anaplan enables you to turn the complexity of your business operations into powerful, easy-to-use applications for forecasting, planning, modeling, and performance management. No complicated scripting language is required to build an app—just simple formulas expressing dependencies.
Solve any challenge by building your own app—from modeling and predicting, to planning and forecasting.
Not only did we want the Anaplan experience to be immediate and responsive, we wanted it to be easy for anyone to create, maintain, and change an app. With Anaplan, there’s no complicated scripting language required to build a planning application—just simple formulas expressing dependencies. With the platform’s open data model, you can simply construct whatever combination of dimensions you need.
Easy access to your apps logic, calculations, and settings
Your apps are also easy to adapt and extend. There’s no need to ever go back and rebuild from scratch. The key to this versatility is a single, easy-to-manage store of all the logic, calculations, and settings in your app.
Features that make application building a breeze
Intuitive modeling interface
Business users can use familiar business syntax, drag-and-drop hierarchies, and built-in logic for time, versions, and scenarios. With Anaplan, there are no technical barriers between you and business insights. No reliance on IT for business rules adjustments, model creation, or changes. No more scripting or broken cell references.
Central data repository
Anaplan offers a central repository to reconcile various sources of data for clean, reliable hierarchy, and makes master data (products, employees, cost centers, etc.) accessible to analysts around the enterprise. This centralized data ensures all users are leveraging a single source of truth for analysis and key business decisions. By eliminating the need to chase down and aggregate data, Anaplan automatically reconciles data discrepancies so that business users leverage only the most up-to-date, consistent data sets.
Anaplan enables business users to build multi-dimensional models to the right level of detail that matches business sophistication—all the way down to the smallest unit size. Build models to any level of granularity with any number of dimensions—layer in time (daily/weekly/monthly), hierarchies, relationships, and more. Easily create dynamic scenarios in minutes using our time, version, and dimensions. Using our breakback feature, quickly deliver top-down planning.

This master repository gives non-technical users the ability to define, manage, and adjust business rules—accelerating the model building process, delivering visibility and control, and completely removing IT dependency.
