Anaplan

Anaplan is great for collaborative planning and complex business models that require frequent updates and quick feedback. Ease of use, ease of development, deployment & maintenance accelerates business adoptionIt's not a great reporting or analytics tool. Limited model sizes limit the capability to capture large data sets and need for Data Warehouse for plan over plan & historic analysis and reporting

Pros

Anaplan

  • Allows the business to link different planning streams into one place
  • Gives users a single source to view data, no more comparing offline templates in excel
  • Intuitive new UX that allows us to be more customizable when tailoring to needs of end-users
Scott Eckman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle SCM Cloud

  • In Order promising options, we have lead time based, available to promise, capable to promise and profitable to promise. So the promising rules will select best available options amongst them to benefit the customer and the enterprise.
  • Allocation by demand ensures that the scarce supply of products are reserved for the most important customers which is a value proposition for any organization.
  • The entire procurement process can be automated, which will be executed without manual interventions. This will in-turn improve productivity and ensure compliance is followed in each step.
Raviraj Raikar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Anaplan

  • Enablement -- Anaplan should invest more in both its training capability and training content. Anaplan is not the most difficult tool to learn, but having more foundation in this area would make the ramp-up process significantly easier
  • Storage -- Anaplan is not a data warehouse. This is understandable given data warehousing is not their primary value proposition, but many times we run close to the storage limits of Anaplan, and it would be great if Anaplan had different storage size options for its workspaces.
  • User Interface -- Anaplan's user interface could be streamlined and improved to become more intuitive and accommodate more shortcut keys.
Matthew Kuo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle SCM Cloud

  • Update/Patching process window of only two weeks between test and production is very short
  • Oracle Cloud support was very immature and resources were lacking compared to on premise support
  • Several features and functions did not work as advertised. Several workarounds had to be added in which delayed project work

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.

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.

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

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.

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/

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.

Alternatives Considered

Anaplan

During the selection process at the end of 2012, we were thinking of Excel as the main tool, or an in-house software built by ourselves, however, this would have taken us ages, so we checked what is available on the market. Anaplan was a small start-up at that time, but it helped us to ensure we can customize the software to our needs.
Szilvia Havasreti | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle SCM Cloud

We selected Oracle SCM Cloud because it was what our entire company is using for other functions outside of SCM. It did not make sense to bring in another product to run cloud planning. It would have lead to too much integration and confusion having the systems try to speak to each other. The products are comparable, but the Oracle products seem to be developing and improving more quickly than most

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.

Return on Investment

Anaplan

  • Anaplan has been good to plan future fiscal years, by doing the planning in here and seeing the financial impact certain variables can produce it is easier to make decisions within the company such as hiring, eliminating certain costs etc., to achieve the financial results as set in the company goals.
  • Dashboards have been really helpful for the financial executives as very specific data can be analysed and presented in the dashboards focused to specific financial teams, so it is easier to see the actual results and forecasts.
  • On the negative side, since Anaplan is a complex tool to handle, it is better to have a dedicated resource or resources to the handling in Anplan. Regular business analysts could not handle their regular tasks and doing complex configurations in Anaplan without the help of well trained Anaplan resources, extra dedicated resources are needed to work with Anaplan.

Oracle SCM Cloud

  • There is a large reduction in man hours spent attempting to manually create the traceability matrix
  • There is a strong involvement of different BUs and collaboration on the requirements creation process
  • The time to develop and approve requirements has been shortened
