THE BOTTOM LINE

Guidebook: Connected planning with Anaplan

Companies are increasingly challenged to make faster decisions and execute them across all pillars of operations. From sales and marketing to inventory, finance, supply chain, human resources, and operations, managers need access not just to timely data but to tools that enable them to understand that data and the potential impact of their decisions across the business. The Anaplan Connected Planning platform enables planners and managers to pull together data from disparate operational systems and applications and understand it in real time, breaking down disconnected budgeting and planning processes and enabling rapid data-driven change. Nucleus found that Anaplan customers adopting a connected planning strategy were able to drive faster decision making, increasing manager productivity while accelerating planning and reporting, reducing costs, and increasing flexibility.
