It can be used for business intelligence, predictive planning, financial consolidation, integrated planning, budgeting and forecasting, strategy execution, and management. It can be deployed on the cloud or on-prem.

We use it for retail budgeting and assortment planning. Our company is mainly focusing on fashion retail. And we are also now focusing on vendor forecasting to provide predictive analyses. We are a Board partner in India. One of our clients is Bestseller, a fashion retailer. We are doing projects for them on retail budgeting and planning. We recently completed their assortment planning project and we have had good feedback.

Our end user is a chemical industry company, and they did a lot of reports in Excel. We use Board to create reports automatically, instead of with Excel.

We use this solution in several ways, including: * We develop data modeling for customers. * Internally, we use it to monitor and control company performance. * We create demonstrations for potential new customers. * We create dashboards that permit us to find and understand inefficiencies, which can then be improved.

I have been using BOARD for the last four years to create financial reports, create budget scenarios, perform budget cycle, run consolidations, create dashboards and visualizations. BOARD provides in-depth insight to enable users in their decision-making process. Taking data and making it easily readable/ready-to-use.

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.
