Anaplan Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

Anaplan product overview

What is Anaplan?

Anaplan’s disruptive platform creates a hub for collaborative planning and execution from corporate level plans all the way to the store or account level. Anaplan delivers a high rate of user adoption and engagement by combining self-service power with true usability. Anyone, anywhere, anytime can engage on models and plans from any device. Anaplan’s unified platform enables cross-functional planning and brings distributed, on-the-ground expertise to corporate plans—delivering top-down, bottoms-up alignment.

Key benefits of using Anaplan

Unlike traditional planning tools or spreadsheets that stall with overhead data as they scale, Anaplan delivers optimal performance no matter the data volume and model complexity. Instead of tracking relationships at a cell formula and dependency level, our HyperBlock™ Architecture tracks dependencies at the line item. As the platform records your updates, it has the intelligence to update only those cells that have changed. So, as your data volumes scale, complexity doesn’t.

Anaplan is a huge time saver

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Before Anaplan, we were on excel documents that required many versions and iterations. We started with financial planning as a model and have since expanded into other solutions for issues that have arisen. The goal is to continue to plug new models into this tool, like many power users I've seen at Anaplan conferences, in order to get all of our data on one platform.

Cons

Initial set up requires a lot of learning and time. Their training session is several days and still requires additional follow up work and communication with their implementation team. Graphs and data visualization is also far lacking compared with Tableau or even Excel.

Anaplan is a game changer, but not without flaws

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Product - it's adaptability...you can build almost anything you want with the platform. Simple replacements of existing excel models take only hours to replicate. Vendor - the constant upgrades to the system. 3-5 upgrades every year, and I have had a few of my personal requests added to the road map and eventually included in an upgrade, so they definitely listen to their customers on what to work on next.

Cons

Product - Metadata management. Within a single model it is great, but when you share the same metadata across models, it is really cumbersome to build the models to talk to each other constantly. Vendor - the pricing model is bad, they get you in the door with a small workspace that quickly runs out due to not accurately estimating the size you would need, and then charge thousands of dollars per GB of extra space to fit what you wanted to do in the first place.

Transform Your Business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have nothing but good things to say about this software!

Pros

Cloud connected forecasting software that takes businesses to the next level by replacing their old Excel files and manual updating processes, and provides them with a window into the future. This tool can do (almost) anything when it comes to analyzing large data sets and providing fully transparency and connectedness in your business.

Cons

Some small functionality issues when you're in the tool, but so minor you hardly notice.
