Anaplan Polaris™ has launched in General Availability (GA): With the introduction of Anaplan Polaris—an extension of the Anaplan Hyperblock™ family—businesses can leverage the power of the Anaplan platform to more effectively model, analyze, and solve for the global complexities impacting their performance and operations. Teams from different departments, in different locations, can explore large data sets in a single, scalable environment, leverage that data to model and modify what-if scenarios across all the dimensions of their business, and then turn those insights into strategic actions – from re-allocating resources to shifting promotion strategies. And when we say any dimensions – we mean it. Anaplan Polaris has the power and scale to calculate across the many different dimensions of a large global organization, even those exceeding 10 million, trillion cells. You can learn more about Anaplan Polaris™ by downloading the solution brief or visiting the Anaplan calculation engines page on Anapedia.
