What do Gartner, Forrester, and IDC have in common? They all named Anaplan a planning leader.
IDC defines the EPM software market as cross-industry applications whose main purpose is to measure, analyze, and optimize financial performance management, planning, forecasting, and certain risk management processes using prepackaged applications.
In the report, analyst Chandana Gopal explains Anaplan’s leadership and how the intelligent planning platform was purpose-built to deliver Connected Planning. She states, “Anaplan is a cloud EPM vendor that approaches this space with the idea that planning encompasses more than just the finance function… offer(ing) planning and performance management capabilities that span many business functions including financial planning and analysis (FP&A), commercial finance, sales, operations, workforce, and supply chain.”
Further illustrating this unique differentiator, she explains “where traditionally, like most EPM vendors, Anaplan’s center of gravity is the office of finance as the platform champion, the company also has customers that have fully realized the benefit of connecting several functional and business unit planning processes.”
