Why ZS and Anaplan

Many companies struggle with the ability to optimally plan and manage performance due to limitations in available technologies. They evaluate undesirable options, from expensive and inflexible ERP-type platforms to point solutions that only support a single planning process and require significant resource investments. Faced with these suboptimal choices, many organizations have relied exclusively on Excel to conduct their planning activities.

Fortunately, Anaplan offers a cloud-based solution that enables companies to deploy applications to run their planning processes. Anaplan’s processing power handles very large volumes of data, it’s flexible to configure for a company’s unique processes, and it allows people to collaborate in real-time during the planning process.
