Anaplan

Anaplan is great for Sales Ops, FP&A, and basically anything that is heavy Excel-based. It's great at summarizing large amounts of data, like pivot tables. It's also great for crunching Salesforce data. I don't have a need for SQL, but I'm sure it would great for any kind of database summarization use case.

Domo

When you want to empower your end users. When you want to take the stress off your IT team from building reports. When you want to have a "data warehouse" without building out your own massive DW/DC and Infa team.

Pros

  • Anaplan is great for headcount reporting. We have reports by dept, office location, and subsidiary that is great for planning and also for full company reporting.
  • Although they can be complicated to set up, Anaplan is also great for setting up complex P&L views. For example, setting up a P&L with a combination of subs/depts., that still needs to consolidate to the total P&L.
  • Systems-wise, I like that it's impossible to #REF the model! Anaplan shows you where everything is referenced, so it's very difficult to break anything.
  • I also like that formulas copy across, so there is no chance of pointing to the wrong cell, like in Excel

  • Connectivity: Domo can easily connect to most databases and data sources. They have a team that would help with your data connection, in case you need it.
  • Speed: In comparison to other tools, Domo is reasonably fast. Of course, this will depend on a lot of things: the amount of data you are working on and your internet speed, since Domo is cloud based.
  • User friendly: Domo is fairly easy to use. And you can access most of the data you want easily.
  • Mobile: Domo is a great tool for mobile purposes. Their apps for data visualization are top notch!

Cons

  • I'd like to see a back button. While there is restore from backup, it is a long process that only Admins can perform. And all users lose changes of course.
  • As an Admin, my #1 request is: why can't we select multiple list members with check boxes? For example, if I have a list of depts., and want to see HR + Recruiting (two list members). Yes, I can build a line item that does that. But every combination of list members must be custom built.
  • Another one that I get asked for are hierarchies for line items. For example, if I have a List on pages, there will be "+" to group items. For example, I might have Finance, HR, and Recruiting, all in "G&A" which I could then open the "+" to expand and collapse (G&A) to show the detail. If I am pivoted on a Line Item on pages, this isn't possible.
  • Another big one I get asked for, is "why can't I save views?!" Of course Admins can, but I think users would really appreciate it this one. Please consider it!

  • Beast mode functionality could be improved with better training
  • Formula number fields created in Domo should be able to be used as a summary number
  • Currency fields from salesforce reports show up as text

Domo is a great up-and-coming product. There are many fantastic features that are extremely compelling to our end users, which makes Domo a great fit for our organization. As with many BI tools, there are items on the wish list that could make implementation, administration and usage easier, but I believe these will be addressed over time as the product matures and evolves. The overall concept and approach of this solution has definitely raised the bar in this area of expertise and I would like to see things advance in giving the enterprise tools that will make decision making easier and more robust in the future.

Usability

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.

A business management platform has to be flexible to provide solutions for customers from any business environment, but that flexibility has to be delivered without requiring complex business process re-engineering and massive data conversion efforts. Domo’s web-based architecture and wealth of connectivity options allow rapid setup for any business. If your marketing company is wrestling with channel return on investment or your educational organization is drowning in data, Domo has the tools and capability to use your data and turn it into something useful for you

Performance

Anaplan9.0
Based on 1 answer
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 Hyperion. We used to have Hyperion calcs that ran for 60 mins before you could use data. The equivalent would be 60 seconds in Anaplan.

Support

I feel like the support team is a little lacking in product knowledge. Several times I have contacted them to get help, and ended up finding a solution to my own problem before the team could get back to me with anything useful. I have also submitted a few bugs, and never got updates to when they were fixed in later releases.

In-Person Training

Anaplan3.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Online Training

Anaplan5.0
Based on 1 answer
I'm giving this a 5 simply for the anapedia outline of calculations. The online videos and trainings leave a lot to be desired, but having anapedia around to help you understand calculations has been helpful. The drawback to anapedia is the depth they go into for calculations, it is lackluster at times. Because of that, I have been working through a much more in-depth look at each calculation on my website for users to reference: http://www.anaplanguru.com/formulas/

It was a breeze. We had it implemented and were using it in production within weeks. Even before the POC was schedule to end.

Breadth of Deployment

No answers on this topic
We have a broad audience on the Salesforce.com platform. This includes Executives (C-Level), Sales Teams (both inside and outside sales), Product and Promotional Marketing, and IT administration. The tool is used mainly by our World WideSales teams, as it is used for viewing metrics and other KPI type information that will assist our team in analyzing business trends that will make the sales opportunity process more streamlined and robust.

Alternatives Considered

In my opinion, Anaplan is on a completely different level than any other CPM system. In looking at other systems, the ability to model doesn't even come close to what Anaplan can do. Reporting and BI is made better through synchronization. There is just really no comparison. If you want to have your planning really connected to your actual business, then Anaplan is the only way to go.

The software also stands out for its collaborative nature. It can integrate with different datasets, including social media, spreadsheets, and most enterprise business systems.Domo is positioned as a self-service BI tool for varied user types, from the department staff to the tech engineer. As such, it is easy to use and is conveniently accessible via a single dashboard. It is also useful for users that demand real-time insights.

Lines of Business and Business Impact

Anaplan has transformed the way we operate our finance department. We have slashed the amount of time it takes to build manual reports and instead can focus our energy on providing greater detail and insight for our budget managers. We've reduced our processing time from 3 days down to 15-30 minutes per month. We also can provide data to our end users that they never have had access to before

It’s hard to extract data from Domo. Again, Domo provides beautiful dashboard presentations, but if you want to extract that data from the Cloud, do your own analysis of it, save it as a file, send it as email it, etc., you could have a difficult time doing so. However the internal cloud and twitter style messaging system allows for solid cross organizational sharing

Domo has a good mechanism for taking on-premise data and moving it into their Cloud. The Domo workbench software installs on the user’s network, fetches information on a regular basis and moves that data up to the Cloud- which in-turn feeds those amazing dashboard widgets.Through APIs, Domo can pull both structured and unstructured data (think QuickBooks and social media) from on-premise or Cloud-based sources, into one view. Domo offers hundreds connectors right out of the box.

Scalability

Anaplan7.0
Based on 1 answer
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.
