Make the "model open analysis" available

It is very common to face performance issues with Anaplan models. Examples are not lacking, you just have to have a look to Anaplan Community to realize it.

Several “best practices” exist: https://community.anaplan.com/discussion/33530/oeg-best-practice-plans-this-is-how-we-model

Moreover, a tool exists, the “Model Open Analysis”. How to summarize it in a sentence?
It is a restitution of the calculation time to the “Line Item” in ms and in % of the total calculation time.
More information here: https://community.anaplan.com/discussion/139710/model-open-analysis-vs-model-performance-analysis

Here is an idea to leverage it: Why not make the results of the “Model Open Analysis” available?

Indeed, Model Open Analysis information is very important for the followings :

  • Customer satisfaction (faster model),
  • The efficiency of the model builder to repeat the analysis several times and improve it,
  • To relieve the support of the requests,
  • To relieve Anaplan servers.

Possible implementation:
1 - New column in the “line item” tab, like the “most recent duration (ms)” column (won’t please everyone even if ideas exist: https://community.anaplan.com/discussion/155182/allow-column-formatting-on-lists-grid-view)
2 - Downloadable file via API or Anaplan connect,
3 - Other (?)

What do you think about it?

    This is genius idea , for sure it will make thinks easier .

  • I sincerely hope that Anaplan takes this into consideration, as this functionality would be a game changer. The ability to hone in on problematic line items and modules - and subsequently take proactive measures to improve their performance - will result in better-equipped Model Builders and ultimately greater customer satisfaction. It will also provide the additional benefit of helping Anaplan compete with its newer market rivals.
