Anaplan Key Enterprise & Cloud Applications


SCORES Analysis

Anaplan Strengths

Anaplan is a cloud-based, in-memory modeling and planning platform for finance, sales & marketing, human resources, supply chain, and operations, and IT that enables business users to intuitively and dynamically test and operationalize their plans, manage complex multi-dimensional models, collaborate across functions and regions, and share insights and content with the Anaplan ecosystem of customers and partners via Anaplan the built-in Ccommunity.


Anaplan and its partners have introduced a series of application packages for finance, marketing, operations, human resources, and IT, as well as a complete sales performance management application suite, which includes quota, territory and commissions management, real-time quote, and price optimization.


The fact that Anaplan is growing faster than many of the upstart cloud players could be attributable to two key reasons: the scalability of its solution that makes it attractive for large enterprise planning needs and its extension into those functional areas beyond finance for integrated business planning, whereas competitors such as Tidemark, Host and Adaptive have until recently been focusing primarily on finance.


Anaplan is also going after other sweet spots that are ripe for disruption such as incentive compensation planning and workforce optimization – competing with the likes of Callidus and NICE Systems, respectively, thus boosting its addressable space beyond the conventional confines of financial budgeting and planning.


Additionally, Anaplan’s new apps include Inventory Planning and Segmentation, Demand Sensing as well as CapEx Planning. Even within the confines of financial planning, trends like zero-based budgeting, which requires financial analysts and LOB executives to reverse the planning process by starting from a zero base for each new period, are redefining the value of EPM applications.


Anaplan is working with Accenture to develop an app for zero-based budgeting as well. Anaplan reported that its bookings increased at a growth rate of 230% over 2014, which represents 2.1 times more bookings than the previous two years combined. These results were fueled by a 91% growth in customers.


Anaplan also announced 100%+ year-over-year revenue growth for the first half of its fiscal year ending January 2016. This growth is fueled by a rapidly expanding global customer base that has migrated away from spreadsheets and outdated planning technologies.
