Hyde Park Partners and Anaplan Announce Partnership in Enterprise Performance Management

Hyde Park Partners and Anaplan to Host Webinar on Precision Planning and Modeling

San Francisco, CA – August 1, 2013 – Anaplan, the fastest-growing provider of modeling and planning solutions for sales, operations and finance, today announced a partnership with Hyde Park Partners, a boutique management and technology consulting company specializing in Enterprise Performance Management (EPM). By joining forces with Anaplan, Hyde Park will be able to offer clients a combination of industry-leading technology and expertise in EPM best practices from formulating business strategy, to improving business operations, to managing technical projects.

“We work with our clients to solve their most pressing performance management problems, but old school EPM platforms simply can’t keep up with the speed of business change,” said Erik Dinsmore, Managing Partner at Hyde Park Partners. “We are excited to work with Anaplan as a partner. Given a growing demand for more flexible enterprise technologies, we believe that Anaplan is a great choice for us and our clients going forward.”

As the winner of a Gartner Cool Vendor Award in 2012, Anaplan has already been recognized for its innovative cloud software and its role in reshaping how business users within large enterprises model and plan their businesses. Customers like McAfee, Pandora, HealthTrust, Aviva, Amcor, and Kimberly-Clark Eastern Europe have already leveraged Anaplan’s powerful and flexible modeling platform to improve their planning and decision-making process across the enterprise.

“Given the complexity and velocity of business today, more and more executives recognize the need to rethink planning altogether,” said Fred Laluyaux, CEO at Anaplan. “True strategic planning requires collaboration across departments and teams including experts on the ground. Anaplan is the only platform that has the power, flexibility, and ease of use for non-technical users, in finance, sales, and, operations.”

On August 8, Hyde Park Partners will offer a webinar on the benefits of modeling with this new breed of planning and modeling technologies. The session will educate finance, sales and operations executives on the business benefits of Anaplan technology over legacy platforms, starting with an inside-out look at the technical advantages of Anaplan’s patented, in-memory modeling technology over traditional OLAP tools. Erik Dinsmore, Managing Partner at Hyde Park Partners and veteran of 100’s of EPM implementations, will lead the session. Interested parties can register to attend here.
