Real Time Integrations!


Enhancement: As an Anaplan Workspace Admin, I would like the ability to do real time integration imports & exports directly in user facing models WITHOUT impacting the user experience. 


Problem Statement: Today we run an export every ten minutes, from a user facing model. When we run that export the blue processing box appears on the screen for about 2 minutes.  When the process is running the model essentially locks up & end users are unable to do anything. this happens every ten minutes. 


This enhancement would be helpful for ALL Anaplan customers and would open the numerous use cases.

    This is definitely something we are looking at but in the meantime a couple of techniques you can use to minimise the impact


    1. Look at the view used for the export and make sure that is is efficient

    • Use a single Boolean line item as a filter
    • Only export what is really needed, so remove the redundant line items and totals

    2. Implement a "delta" export using boolean flags as part of the process so that only new data is exported rather than all data all of the time


  • Hi David,


    Thanks for responding & for the suggestions. We have already implemented these suggestions & they have helped, but not to the desired extent.  Have had extensive meetings with Anaplan reps (Michael Pearlman) on this topic.
