Currently, I'm working in marketing and promotions. This includes promotions like buy one, get one offers, supply chain management, as well as forecasting supply and demand. All of this is done in Anaplan. We load the data into the app and plan the business execution at the retail level, including the pricing, payments to the retailers, and so on.

We're a service provider, so we work with multiple clients to build out Anaplan solutions across a lot of different disciplines. We have a couple of high-tech companies. We're using it to manage the PR process, the purchase request process for marketing, which includes campaign management, and also for how a purchase request gets funded. It's that modeling around scenarios where you want to really understand what costs are associated with activities. Shortly, we're going to implement around connected with revenues so we can understand in more detail the ROI on marketing. This is for a high-tech Fortune 100 company. What you do is you buy a workspace and then you basically have access to that workspace, and then you can build models within that workspace.

There are four or five main use cases. One is for P&L. It's for profit and loss planning forecast and actuarial reporting. We also use it for balance sheet reporting. And then I have what is connected to payroll and HR. I have a lot of business cases and allocations by product, by customers, et cetera, as well.

I'm using Anaplan to provide production support for my client. The Anaplan model is already there and what I'm doing is fixing bugs updating the logic. That's my main role in the project. I will fix those queues for the business and update some processes or dashboards to better suit business needs, as per their requests.
