Customer CoE Stories


An Anaplan Center of Excellence (CoE) creates synchronicity between the people involved in your Connected Planning journey. Many of our customers—regardless of where they are in their journey—have been focusing on establishing a CoE, or an Anaplan Community of Practice, to pursue their goals. CoEs are being built typically when our customers want to improve the governance of the product’s momentum and to fill in gaps in the current process to support its growth.

More than 25% of our customers have now embarked on this journey and approached the 9 stages of building a CoE in their own way. Just like how Rome wasn’t built in a day, an Anaplan CoE will continue to evolve with the business and be the accelerator that helps achieve their Connected Planning vision.

A number of our customers have provided insight into their experience of building and maturing their Anaplan CoE. Take a look at their stories to find inspiration on how to take the next step on your journey!

    Regarding the comment directly above. There is documentation on organizing a CoE. Once one is organized for your Company, you will find a document where you will document your CoE and forward completed documentation to the Anaplan CoE coordinator. I apologize that I do not know the contact offhand but it is one of the PowerPoint presentation documents on site. You'll basically state your CoE's goals, structure, and method of emergent and re-enforcement of standards dissemination (training/education, meetings, updates). There is a requirement that a CoE hold regular (monthly/bi-monthly) meetings to educate/re-enforce standards. The second question related to Anaplan features and capabilities is keeping up with the latest release notes. Having the team receive the Anaplan regular distributions (release notes, outage calendar, etc.) would contribute towards building a CoE.
