This session will wrap up in one hour. Please submit your final questions for Mark as soon as possible!
We often use subsets to reduce model sparsity. And some of those subsets can be described using formula.
Does Anaplan team have any plans to make it possible to write formulas for subsets? Currently we use actions to automate subsets maintenance.
Thanks & Regards,
Can you provide some more insights on new UI features coming in next releases?
There are a view options to consider: 1) subset the programs by 1st half and 2nd half and use the subsets separately to manage sparsity. 2) Consider time ranges which is similar, limited to full years only, and won't give you the flexibility of subsets, i.e. multiple time ranges will have to be maintained. 3) If the program module is by time and is primarily an input or plan/actual data module how data load is structured will impact the degree of sparsity over time. Are all of the programs in populated in the timescale, or could a numbered list be used to reduce the program list size.
Is there any tool being built which can indicate modules which has high sparsity. This should help saving time by reducing the analysis time in each modules.
Short answer is no, there isn't a tool available to determine sparsity. In an Anaplan model, every cell is assumed to consume server memory. High sparsity is inferred through an analysis of the dimensional intersections which are not intended or are not populated. The best technique for sparsity analysis is to review the subject model's largest modules and determine the inferred sparsity in those largest modules.
Is there audio because I can't find a way to connect? I don't have a specific question but wanted to listen to the questions and answers. Thanks.
