Singapore – 23 October 2014 – Anaplan received two top honours from Singapore’s CIO community with the CIO HONOUR AWARDS® 2014 in the Sales Performance Analytics and Integrated Performance Management Analytics categories at a glittering RED CARPET HONOUR AWARDS® reception event. The CIO HONOUR AWARDS® is a powerful endorsement promoted by CXO HONOUR®, a recognised endorsement platform amongst the CIO community in Singapore. The Top honours were chosen by an independent advisory council of emminent CIOs based on the results from an opinion poll that was made available to more than 500 CIOs in Singapore.
