Gartner’s Innovation Insight for Extended Planning and Analysis (xP&A)

Gartner has published another report highlighting Extended Planning and Analysis (xP&A), giving further weight to strategies that enable finance to lead company-wide continuous planning and performance management initiatives, a practice we call “connected planning.”

According to Gartner, ‘by extending FP&A and other planning applications beyond their home-domain users to other key business stakeholders, an xP&A approach can offer decision makers a holistic view of their planning processes, results, and progress toward fulfilling a strategy and meeting an organization’s goals.”

Read Gartner’s Innovation Insight for Extended Planning and Analysis (xP&A) report and we believe you will learn why ‘a platform-centric approach’ like Anaplan, can support and integrate both financial and operational planning to deliver the flexibility and collaboration needed to convert continuous change to advantage to ensure financial success.
