Five inspiring years in the Anaplan Community!

edited January 2023 in Blog

This month we celebrate five years since the launch of the official Anaplan Community! From 2013 to 2016, Community forums served as a place for connection, conversation, and trouble-shooting — but we envisioned more. More learning, more sharing, and more opportunities for collaboration were just what the ecosystem needed to elevate planning practices.

Anaplan Community Forward 2022

That vision was realized in March 2017 when we launched a new Community experience with a more member-focused design and expanded resources. Since then, we've been committed to improving the experience for members with new features, improved content, and expanded networking opportunities. Every day we are inspired by this Community! Your knowledge, willingness to support each other, and eagerness to learn are what drive our work in creating a place to help you succeed.

When you think about your engagement with Community — I want you to think about it first as a place to be inspired, and then as a place to inspire.

- Erin Siemens, SVP, Chief Customer Officer, Anaplan

Join us in celebrating five amazing years by taking a look back at the journey we've been on together, and experience Community through the lens of two long-time members as they look back at their personal Community journey.

Like I said in 2017, “We have a vibrant community where we can help our customers succeed on their own, to learn, develop, and grow… The more voices we have the farther we can go, and we do that together as one Community.” Even 5 years later, we continue to be fully committed to your success, and as you heard from our current Chief Customer Officer you’ll see even more attention and investment to continue improving this space for all of us to move forward together.

This is the place to make your impact, build your brand, get inspired by your peers, and pay it forward while simultaneously developing yourself. Thank you for your engagement and enthusiasm. We can't wait for the next five years!
