21/01/2021 | 12u30-13u15
If you have never heard of Anaplan and you are in Finance, definitely check it out in 2021. The same goes for PowerBI. Anaplan is loved by Finance Teams as Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting solution hugely successful on European market. PowerBI is a Business Intelligence Tool of Choice for Financial Planning & Controlling Teams flawlessly integrated with other powerful Microsoft services and solutions.
While both solutions are great we notice at Numlix that Finance Teams tend to struggle with understanding core differences between them. Specifically, Finance Teams are quite often confronted with a range of typical multi-tool challenges:
- How would your team better share reporting outside Finance, with Management Teams.
- Where shall your organization store financial data, like Budgets and Forecasts, but also Master Data owned by Finance.
- How to make planning interactive and organize collection of inputs from other departments like Sales, HR, Marketing, etc.
- How to avoid dubbing of functionality and cost of multiple tools in use?
Best-In class organizations overcome those challenges by combining Anaplan with PowerBI wisely.
