SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - Today, Anaplan unveiled the most significant update to its platform to date with its Winter '14 Release, offering a completely re-architected user experience and a raft of powerful, new modeling and planning capabilities. The release delivers increased speed, flexibility and usability for business users through a streamlined and personalized interface, and further strengthens the most powerful planning platform available, enabling companies to quickly build data-driven plans and applications to replace legacy systems.
One of the most prominent enhancements of the Winter '14 Platform Release is its Tiles Interface -- a modern, intuitive navigation feature enabling users to seamlessly access and switch between their applications. The enhanced interface delivers one-click, enterprise-wide visibility into plans and models across sales, finance, and operations. This ease of navigation is essential as business users leverage the Anaplan platform to build, share and consume an increasing number of sophisticated and interconnected applications across the enterprise.
"The revolution of Anaplan is that we've architected a thoroughly modern technology platform that enables entire organizations to manage data volume, complexity, and collaboration in real-time," said Anaplan CEO Frederic Laluyaux. "With this release, we've enabled a new level of consumer-like navigation and enterprise-wide visibility so that companies can align their teams to market opportunities faster."
"This release transforms Anaplan from a business planning and execution toolkit into a full-fledged application development platform, and I'm not talking about writing code or using some complex scripting language, but rather this is about applications being built by business users, for business users," said Anaplan CTO Michael Gould. "The design, build, and ongoing maintenance of applications can easily be done by the end users -- 'citizen developers' -- who best understand the problems they are trying to solve."
Powered by the patented, in-memory data engine, HyperBlock™, Anaplan's platform combines all the essential components for every department in an organization to build and maintain robust models, plans, and forecasts using data sets that are always up-to-date.
