I'm working on Anaplan integration with external data sources and could use some advice. Any tips or tools to recommend?
Thanks in adavnce!
first you need to know when approaching data integration is:
I would recommend you to complete the Anaplan Level 3 training, or at least to spend some time in the community to understand more about what options you have available:
2. Brochure covering the different Integration options and customers who use them:
3. This post is focused on Anaplan Connect specifically, but is one of the most useful and detailed (if you want to use Anaplan Connect to connect to External data bases)
This is also a helpful tool
Hi @prisha500 ,
There are multiple steps within one data integration pipeline.
In my opinion, there are 2 main pathways to deploying a data integration solution for Anaplan.
Path A) Purchase a tool from the market (ETL/ELT). Informatica and Snaplogic are two main tools that come to mind. They've both partnered with Anaplan to build their Anaplan connectors. They will handle all the data integration steps for you. This path will have a higher cost than alternative, but the fastest time to deployment, and least maintenance hassle.
Path B) Piece-meal together a series of smaller and lower-cost tools for each step of the pipeline. Here is an example of how we did it:
Based on your specific circumstances you might have to rethink how you'd want to implement a data integration solution, but the above can give you an example of how other Anaplan teams do it.
