Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""Anaplan's in-memory calculation engine is super-fast compared to the old tools we previously used. You enter the data and everything shows up in one go.""Anaplan is a three-dimensional cloud platform that is good for analyzing data, visualization, integration, terrific for visibility.""It's real-time connected planning, so the calculations are pretty much seamless as far as your model is connected.""This product has a very good modeling feature, and its graphical representation of visualizations has also been valuable.""Where we're seeing the opportunity in the market is at the Fortune 100 companies that have far more complex modeling type scenarios where you need to be able to have a lot of people collaborating together, and you need a lot of information all at everyone's fingertips. This is where you see the big advantage of a solution like Anaplan.""You don't need to have a programming language to use Anaplan.""The solution scales well."

"Microsoft Dynamics NAV is brilliant and it's a different segment when comparing it with Dynamics AX. Dynamics AX is a larger product with much more features and it's aimed at a different segment of the market.""The customer support is good. The first level of support agent in every case was able to solve the problem very quickly.""The solution is easy to use, flexible, and customizable.""Our data is much more manageable than before.""The vertical covers all aspects of functionality and integrates easily with the existing Office products.""Microsoft products are very good in general. This product is flexible, easy to use, intuitive, and has good capabilities.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""I have found the flexibility to be very valuable. It's highly flexible, and at least for us, it has been effective. It is also highly functional."

Cons
"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.""It would be nice if the solution offered better extensions.""The cloud engine slows down when working with a large dataset. It still lacks a powerful engine.""The solution could improve by better dashboards and while entering the form loss and project implementation the ability to use graphical shapes more effectively.""There are workspace issues, like the limitation on model sizes.""There are so many business rules to set up in the system that as a business user it's hard to gauge what they're doing and it's possible to get lost.""The negative is that the higher the flexibility, the higher is the complexity. That can act against you as a negative because it does require a model builder or a coder/developer.""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 performance and virtual machine backup is not good with this solution and need improvements.""I am hoping there is more integration with other platforms, more features, and customization in the next release.""The solution is not best suited for larger-scale businesses.""There is a lot of improvement needed in the top model, such as better integration with logistics, quality management, and data modeling for all revenue types.""In Thailand, the support here could be better. The process to get an answer is too long.""It would be nice if the integration process was easier.""Customization and costs could be improved.""Some of the control aspects such as auditing can definitely be improved. For example, auditing is not very easy, and the user permissions are complicated."

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 license is a yearly subscription. There are three licensing tiers: the model builder, planner, and the reporting.""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 first time we tried to buy the newest version, it was expensive.""I have some subscription-based customer and a few customers who have perpetual licenses that hosted the application on the cloud.""Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a pay-as-you-use payment model.""The price of the solution is reasonable.""The price of the solution is reasonable.""I think the pricing is the best; it's cost effective for sure."
