This company is pioneering the category of connected planning, which allows organizations to transform their businesses by making better and faster decisions.

Management believes that believe connected planning is the next essential cloud category. It fundamentally transforms planning by connecting all the people, data and plans needed to accelerate business value and enable real-time planning and decision-making in rapidly changing business environments. Connected planning accelerates business value by transforming the way organizations make decisions and placing the power of planning in the hands of every individual at every level within and between organizations.

Anaplan’s proprietary Hyperblock technology is at the core of its platform and was purpose-built for connected planning. The platform unites traditionally distinct or disconnected database structures, including relational, columnar, and online analytical processing with in-memory data storage and calculation.
