Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution works very well for budgeting.""Anaplan is a three-dimensional cloud platform that is good for analyzing data, visualization, integration, terrific for visibility.""You don't need to have a programming language to use Anaplan.""It's real-time connected planning, so the calculations are pretty much seamless as far as your model is connected.""Technical support has been good.""The solution scales well.""This product has a very good modeling feature, and its graphical representation of visualizations has also been valuable.""I believe Anaplan is a new cloud tool, and from time to time, there's a lot of improvement that the Anaplan company deploys with the system. So, with that improvement, we need to really adapt and know the new system trends."

"The solution is scalable and very stable. You don't need to worry about the underpinning infrastructure.""The main component is Oracle Financial. It is one of the most comprehensive financial solutions available on the market.""I find the most valuable feature for the solution to be the company is always evolving by making the product better with continual updates."

Cons
"There are workspace issues, like the limitation on model sizes.""The visualization tools in the product are limited in comparison to other reporting tools.""The cloud engine slows down when working with a large dataset. It still lacks a powerful engine.""Anaplan is a relatively expensive piece of software.""Automation needs to be built into this solution.""The integration technique should be a little bit easier.""The dashboard could be better. Because within a dashboard or report, you have to do a lot of scrolling. You need to scroll down because the table doesn't fit in a single view. That's why even the users aren't happy with that kind of user experience. They need to scroll to see all the data, and it could be better if it fits in just one page. That way, you can see everything. In the next release, I want automation that's connected to Anaplan. For example, to load master data from SAP to Anaplan. I don't know if this already exists, but a log where you can see the progress and see if there's an error will also help. It would be better to give you the error message, for example, if there is an error within the automated process importing to Anaplan.""The solution can improve by providing an easier form of integration to different platforms, such as receiving data from different Salesforce. There is a process to do it through the use of some APIs but it could be made much easier. This would be a large help to us."

"The interface could be improved in future releases.""The solution's new analytics information, dashboard, and flexibility of reporting could be improved.""The initial setup can be somewhat complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are currently using a free workspace license for 90 days. We are satisfied with the price of the solution. There are additional costs if you want more storage, the default limit is 250 GB."
  • "The entry-level is anywhere from about $30,000 to $50,000 a year, however, it does go up significantly after that depending on the complexity and how much space you're using."
  • "This is a yearly subscription. So a customer initially buys a workspace and specifies how much GB they want. The minimum starts at around 30 GB. You can buy multiple workspaces."
  • "The license is a yearly subscription. There are three licensing tiers: the model builder, planner, and the reporting."
  • "This is an expensive product and if the price were reduced then it would attract more customers."

  • "The solution is expensive and there are some services that are extra costs."
