Cloud based

Anaplan provides a fully integrated business modeling and planning platform in the cloud.


Real-time, scalable modeling and calculation engine

By tracking dependencies at the level of the line item, our HyperBlock™ technology enables updates or changes to models of any size, from one to one trillion cells, in real-time.


In-memory processing

Anaplan’s in-memory engine enables detailed planning models that utilizes all your data down to the transactional level (Product SKU, Stores, Employees, etc.) for better business decisions.

App Hub

App Hub

A growing collection of apps for common use cases are available in the Anaplan App Hub to get you started quickly. Use them as is, modify them to suit your special needs, or start from scratch and create your own.


Data integration

Anaplan offers an API, intuitive user Import/Export and pre-built connectors for common platforms like Salesforce.com, and SnapLogic.


Multi-dimenstional planning

Build models to any level of granularity with any number of dimensions—layer in time (daily/weekly/monthly), hierarchies, relationships, and more.


Master repository of business rules (Living blueprint™)

Using our Living Blueprint™ technology, all your complex business rules (in natural syntax) are stored and managed in one easy to understand worksheet.


Model versions

Anaplan enables users to create new model versions on the fly. Quickly replicate models and load with data and easily track actuals in the same model as plans.



With breakback, users can set a target for a formula, and the variables that make up that formula are changed according to the rules specified.


Dynamic scenario building

Anaplan delivers strategic advantage with fast, easy creation of dynamic scenarios with time, version, and list dimensions.


User access control

Anaplan enables flexible role-based security levels for user types. Audit trail, model restore, and selective user access make it possible for analysts to safely and simultaneously collaborate on common models.


Collaborative workflow

Monitor status and approvals with a collaborative workflow that streamlines top-down target allocation and consolidation of roll-ups from the field. A robust audit trail ensures that changes are easy to track.


History and revision control

Our robust audit trail ensures that changes are easy to track and revert. See a history of users and changes and roll back to earlier versions.


Central data repository (The Anaplan Hub™)

Anaplan delivers a central repository—The Anaplan Hub—to reconcile various sources of data for clean, reliable hierarchy, and master data (products, employees, cost centers, etc.) accessible to analysts around the enterprise.


Data synchronicity

Anaplan dynamically synchronizes data across connected plans—automatically aggregating and identifying discrepancies for real-time consistency.


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 rule adjustment, model creation, or changes. No more scripting or broken cell references.
