Overall Satisfaction with Anaplan
I am a master anaplanner, and Anaplan certified solution architect. This year I've helped solution a number of solutions for our clients in use cases such as activity planning for a large oil and gas firm, direct + channel sales productivity planning and quota planning for a large cyber security services provider, and currently, I'm building a solution for another activity planning initiative for oil exploration at one of the large oil and gas firms.

I worked on Oracle for about 8 years before making the switch to Anaplan. Building on Anaplan can be more intuitive for most customers as they would've already had substantial experience working in Excel. Anaplan, however, because of the increased capability can also have a higher, longer learning curve, which is typical for any professional service modeling software.
