Anaplan, a cloud platform provider driving a new age of connected planning and Tridant, a leading Planning & Data Analytics Consultancy, have agreed to partner and strengthen their market position in Australia and Singapore.
“We are thrilled to partner with Anaplan and boost our portfolio of leading technology vendors” says Tridant co-founder Alec Jeffery. “We see Anaplan’s connected planning message as a key driver of successful digital transformation and effective decision making”.
Tridant’s core capability lies in the design and implementation of specialised technology solutions optimised for planning, reporting & analytics and customer experience. These solutions are tightly integrated with key business processes and source systems allowing our customers to compete more effectively and maximise the value of their people, data and technology investments.
One theme that remains a constant with our clients is cost management and this is where we see Anaplan giving us a distinct advantage in the market place. Digital has challenged the way business is run. It’s no longer “business as usual”, and yet it’s surprising that most companies today base their cost management approaches on a traditional method – build a budget on what happened in a prior period, a year for example. There is another way!
It’s called zero-based budgeting (ZBB) and while this is not a new concept at all, Anaplan’s powerful modelling capability makes it so much easier to build a budget based on current demand rather than last years. We are building our ZBB capability rapidly, along with an investment in developing our Anaplan team, and look forward to working with our clients to leverage this method.
Anaplan, a leading platform provider driving a new age of connected planning, was recognised as a Leader in the June 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Strategic Corporate Performance Management (SCPM) Solutions and positioned the furthest for Completeness of Vision.
