2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Cloud, Extended Planning and Analysis Solutions

Gartner reduces vendor list by half: “operational planning solutions offered by FP&A vendors, while maturing, may not be as robust as stand-alone BOB planning application counterparts”

With the 2017 introduction of Connected Planning, Anaplan was first to connect financial and operational planning for faster, more confident enterprise decision-making. As with our 2,000+ customers, we believe our platform approach of meeting global enterprise needs for complex, cross-functional planning with forward-looking insights, dynamic and accurate forecasting, and increased visibility and collaboration has earned Anaplan this recognition.

According to Gartner, “Cloud xP&A consists of financial planning and analysis (FP&A) and multiple packaged operational planning solutions delivered on a single integrated, composable, data-harmonized vendor platform. It “extends” traditional FP&A solutions focused solely on finance into other enterprise planning domains such as workforce, sales, supply chain and marketing.”

Read the complimentary report and learn why we believe an xP&A platform like Anaplan’s can enable top-line benefits such as accelerated revenue growth, a reduction in costs, improved risk management, and even a more optimized workforce – despite today’s everchanging business environment.
