AdClarity is an amazing tool when you need to get some webpage from another location. It has lots of different location around the world, well organised by continent, which allow you (according your subscription) emulate easily each one of your desired hits (like hit an American only website in Europe, or vice-versa, etc). For a non-professional users, allows you to do some "tricky" actions, like clean cookies or set a different device user-agent to emulate an mobile device, with simple actions (one or two clicks). Avoid using it to stream video when you pay by download size. Also avoid have multiple tabs/windows on your web browser when you are using this tool, it will refresh all of them.

Anaplan is great for financial planning and systematizing your processes after Excel. It will limit the freedom of individual participants, but allows you to build a central model and speed up your processes. At the same time, it will not make you hostage to IT and a one-time implemented model.

Because it solves all the problems I needed and hardly has any problems.

In any line of work, a tool that is flexible and would allow different departments of your company to easily interact and exchange valuable insights, is highly anticipated and needed. For me, what Anaplan provides to a business, be it a smaller one or an enterprise customer, is an easily scaling, agile planning and modeling platform that can meet almost any need and give a high-end solution to the problems any company faces on a daily basis.

There is a dependency in this rating - in that I find Anaplan extremely easy to use, but I've spent the necessary time developing a strong understanding of the platform. Once you understand how to use it, the platform is flexible, easy to use, and fun to use.

In nearly 3 years, I have only had 1 issue of being unable to access my model for an unplanned maintenance. Even planned maintenance windows are handled during low traffic hours on the weekend.

Everything is calculated in memory in the cloud. It's nearly instantaneous updates when you make changes. The only time things get a little slow is when you have a massive model with very intricate calculations...but "slow" for Anaplan is not what I would call "slow" for something like
. We used to have
calcs that ran for 60 mins before you could use data. The equivalent would be 60 seconds in Anaplan.

Overall, the experience working with Anaplan from the client perspective is a great experience. The support team is quick in answering and solving the issues we're facing (which are quite rare), also very open to feedback or jump in a call to offer their support

The in-person training is simply not worth the cost. After a few weeks of playing in Anaplan, I went to the basic training and knew more than the person teaching it. a year down the road, I was the first person to complete the advance training, and again could have been teaching the class better than the person running the session. Spend some time on your own trying out different things and you will get all the understanding you need to be successful.

Anaplan training materials are clear, simple, easy to understand and to follow. Visuals are excellent. The vendor is good at updating training materials in a timely manner and encouraging users and administrators to keep coming back to Academy site for refresher courses or new feature courses. I really like their interactive diagrams

Read full review Implementation Rating
Agile methodology and breaking the work down into sprints was very helpful. Implementation required a deeper dive into our data than expected for the consultants to be able to construct the data model. But once it was in place, the focus on knowledge transfer enabled us to be able to use the product effectively after the team rolled off.

Very similar product, they have the same purposes and also same features, only difference could be the costs.

My first experience of an EPM system was
on-premise. I found that you needed a lot of database understanding and a coding mind. Whereas Anaplan is more logical, you can write formulas in a similar way to excel. Anaplan is also much more flexible and forgiving of any changes to the upfront design. I remember our
model had to be rebuilt as the wrong assumptions were made of dense vs. sparse dimensions during the design phase.
Read full review Scalability
It's going to handle most of what you can throw at it. The problem lies in the sparsity of some datasets. When you have over 5ish dimensions of sparse data, the size of the model gets bloated for not much value. In several cases, I have had to adapt my model to account for sparsity in a way that minimized use of space, but also made interacting with the data more cumbersome.
Read full review Return on Investment I was able to get more suitable, better converting traffic sources. Read full review We've been able to perform allocations relatively quickly in the platform where we didn't have enough resources on the systems team. This allowed us to view our business at a finer granularity and make decisions to support our long-term growth. Having our forecast in Anaplan has saved us countless hours originally spent in Excel and emails. The workbooks were extremely large and now it's all consolidated into 1 platform for the whole planning organization to view. Read full review ScreenShots
