Anaplan today announced the highlights from their fiscal year, which ended on January 31, 2015. The company reported that their bookings increased by 230 percent, which is 2.1 times more than the previous two years combined; these results were fueled by a 91 percent growth in customers.
The Fiscal 2015 highlights include:
- Customer base now extends across 20 countries
- Doubled users to over 35,000 globally
- Raised $100 million in funding in May 2014
- Named ‘Visionary’ in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Sales Performance Management
- Opened new offices in Russia and Malaysia, expanding Anaplan’s office network to 13 locations in 10 countries
- Expanded Anaplan’s Hub Conference in 2014 from 2 cities to 5 – in 2015 there will be 9
“We’ve met the demand for a reinvention of business planning that cuts the number crunching and gives people their time back. Forbes Global 2000 corporations and hyper-growth enterprises like Splunk, Informatica Corporation, EAT, Symantec, and Zalora have embraced our in-memory platform because it allows their teams to plan, collaborate, and act in real time,” says CEO Frederic Laluyaux.
Anaplan also highlighted HP as a customer tapping into its potential with the help of Anaplan’s Territory and Quota Planning app, a version of which is now available in Anaplan’s App Hub. Launched only in 2014, The App Hub is changing the way enterprise apps are built and deployed across the markets of Finance, Sales, Operations, and HR.
To date Anaplan has always been strong in Finance, but industry watchers are noticing the impact they’re making across the other three markets – Sales, Operations, and HR.
“There is definitive market momentum for new, cloud-based business planning solutions. We’ve seen the rise of inquiries over the past six months,” says R ‘Ray’ Wang, CEO of Constellation Research. “Users are looking for consumer experiences with enterprise-class capabilities. The result is demand for entirely new experiences in the way planning is executed for some of the world’s largest companies.”
That’s precisely what Anaplan does, and that’s why they’ve seen such marked growth.
