It is very easy to use. It has got what they call a toolkit, which is a no-code development environment. You can develop a whole solution with it because it is a complete platform. There is a lot of online material that can be used as a reference. You can help yourself while developing a solution.

There are some prebuilt applications in the platform environment. You can very easily customize and integrate these applications. It also has flexible scaling of machine resources, which is really great.

The most valuable features are the reporting and the charts. The reporting functionality is handy for aggregation, when it comes to planning. That ability is fascinating and our users are very happy with it. The charts and the reporting allow our users to see all the data and to see how things are going this year or in the COVID situation. They're seeing everything. Instead of having to check data line by line, they're seeing it in a graph and they're seeing it in charts.

By using Board we can do a lot of free analysis. We can change the layout of a table and even the end-user can change the layout of a table. And in Board 11.2 you can save the layout. That's very useful for the customer, it's a very good function.

It is useful for self-analysis regarding company data and helps to find areas where we can improve.

Usually, we say Board provides lots of toolkits to achieve both CPM and BI. But, the Anaplan mainly focuses on CPM solutions. If the enduser doesn't have any existing planning strategy, maybe they can refer to Anaplan solution directly and easily. If the enduser already has a clear planning strategy, and they just want to find a tool to achieve it, maybe Board is a better choice because its smart toolkits can be used easily and give more possibilities. BTW, if you want to fully use the BI function (colourful charts, dashboard, multi-dimensional analysis), Board will be absolutely better. Just for your reference.

Is it required in your company to conduct an enterprise architecture review before purchasing a business intelligence tool? What are the common materials you use in the review? Do you have any tips or advice for the community? Any pitfalls to watch out for?

Hi - That is best practice is to have a architecture review however, everything is online to purchase if you would like to buy without this step. Common Material we use to review would be Diagrams based off the customers environment, best practices of customers we have successfully deployed with. Tips--> I would make sure to have a sound understanding of your business, people and process prior to engaging in BI tool. Really understand your organization goals for now and future. Unfortunately many do not encompass future and only right now and then end up spending a lot of $$ later to re-implement/architect because their short term goals were price motivated. Ends up hurting you later if you do not plan for future.
