US-based cloud-native SaaS company Anaplan has expanded its strategic relationship with Amazon Web Services.

Anaplan’s business planning platform is hosted in the AWS Asia-Pacific (Sydney) region. The partnership extends Anaplan’s reach to new customer segments on AWS’s world-leading cloud beyond current availability through the US East (Northern Virginia) region.

Hosted in the AWS Asia-Pacific (Sydney) region, Anaplan can provide customers with data residency preferences and the ability to meet local and industry-specific requirements while deploying Anaplan across global teams and markets.

“Australian companies across many industries have embraced Anaplan to accelerate decision-making to increase efficiency and remain resilient,” said Andy Thiss, area vice president A/NZ at Anaplan.

“Our partnership with AWS provides companies looking to scale globally with access to the most comprehensive cloud provider while meeting Australia’s data sovereignty requirements,” he says.

“We see a great opportunity to partner with a wider customer base to drive their transformation efforts across finance, supply chain, workforce, and sales.”

Running Anaplan on AWS aligns the planning needs of business leaders with the infrastructure requirements of IT leaders. With a scalable, secure cloud infrastructure and business planning solutions that work with large and diverse data sets, users across the organization can confidently analyze complex scenarios in real-time.

The main advantages of Anaplan are:

Real-time data and flexible decision-making help business leaders keep pace with the speed of change. Rich data intelligence, leveraging internal and external insights, for improved forecast accuracy and performance. Intelligent planning and foresight to nimbly adapt to future business conditions.

“For more than a year, organizations have benefited from Anaplan’s use of AWS to provide advanced enterprise scheduling capabilities,” said Sumal Karunanayake, head of partner success for AWS, Australia and New Zealand.

“It’s exciting to see Anaplan expand its data, intelligence, and planning services to Australia to help customers make strategic decisions faster here. Customers can benefit from Anaplan’s flexibility, scalability, and intelligence on AWS.”

One way the partnership with AWS is coming to life is with Anaplan’s flexible scenario modeling capabilities and built-in intelligent forecasting from Anaplan PlanIQ with Amazon Forecast, a time series forecasting service. Customers can improve forecasting accuracy, drive forecast automation, and quickly predict across multiple scenarios. They can easily integrate AWS data storage and analytics services, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), a cloud object store, and Amazon Redshift, a cloud data warehouse, for use with the Anaplan platform.

From predicting regional drug needs based on private and public data sources to accurately forecasting consumer goods demand across channels based on promotional activities, Anaplan on AWS helps companies across industries optimize operations for success.
