Anaplan connects your people, plans and data
The Anaplan platform offers a new approach to planning. To enable collaboration, the platform was built in the cloud, for the cloud. To address exploding data volume and variety, including data from unstructured and online sources, it leverages standards-based data integration that can bring in data from any source. To meet real-time modeling and calculation demands, the platform combines the benefits of cube, columnar, and cell-based frameworks with an in-memory modeling environment and a multi-threaded calculation engine.
