Anaplan is a perfect tool for planning ,budgeting and forecasting . Its a cloud based platform with evolved calculation engine and multi dimensional modelling capabilities. For me, it has worked wonders we had implemented a TQM and ICM use case. We were able to move our of 100 + spreadsheet and error prone excel macro to a rather more stable platform. Similarly , for the FPnA use that we implemented for our client , we were able to achieve as much as 80-90 % automation using Anaplan and were able to stitch all the ecosystems together.
