Data import analysis


Would be very beneficial if Anaplan provided more details on the data imported. Besides the normal error log, it would be helpful if e.g. max/min values, outliers, exceptions, trends, most/least frequent items, dimension items count etc. could be displayed upon import to help the user do a quick sanity check of the data import or help early identification of interesting data observations. This could help reduce the need for building custom data validation steps within the data hub or spoke model.

  • Yes, the need of validating results are a generic need, which could come "out-of-box". This idea could be extended with logging and comparing against the record count at the last 4 loads to identify deviations.
