Enterprise business planning technology provider Anaplan announced it has joined Deloitte’s Technology Alliances portfolio to strengthen both companies’ ability to help clients effectively plan and create collaborative work environments for strategic data insights.
Deloitte, as a consulting and application partner, is a member of Anaplan’s global network of consulting partners helping to deliver end-to-end business planning and execution on the Anaplan platform.
“With its combination of Anaplan’s market-leading technology and Deloitte’s industry and business insight, the alliance will help clients to continuously align their people, plans and spend to their market opportunities,” stated Doug Smith, executive vice president of Anaplan. “Deloitte’s experience and insight in a diverse range of industries enable them to advise Anaplan customers on how to turn the complexity of business operations into powerful, easy-to-use apps and plans.”
The Deloitte Technology Alliance program promotes new capabilities from a range of technology providers while giving the Big Four firm more flexibility in addressing client challenges and business issues.
“Many of our clients approach us with a similar set of issues. Regardless of the industry or the use case, clients need real-time, accurate data to drive strategic decision making and enable further collaboration across different functions,” stated Merritt Alberti, director of Deloitte Consulting. “They are faced with the challenges of improving margins, driving profitable growth and reducing operating costs. Anaplan is one of the leading tools to help companies rationalize their processes and easily determine how they can do things more efficiently.”
Built on the patented, in-memory HyperBlock data engine, Anaplan’s cloud-based platform unifies data and interconnects plans to provide visibility into the planning process.
