Anaplanners, Ask Me Anything!

Community Manager

In April of this year, the Community officially launched Anaplan Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions featuring a sampling of Anaplan experts on a variety of popular planning topics. AMAs provide the Community with a unique opportunity to connect directly with Anaplan experts who are ready and willing to engage in a variety of formats to best support their topic and accommodate a global audience.

We know you’re busy. That’s why AMA sessions are available any time for Community members to view for the first time or to revisit a topic of interest. If you haven’t visited one of the valuable sessions yet this year, now is a great time to check one out! We’re confident you’ll learn something new.

Check out Model Building Excellence and Application Lifecycle Management with expert model builder, David Smith. David’s energy for Anaplan is contagious, and you won’t want to miss his D.I.S.C.O. video bonus question!

Mark Shemaria is part of the fabric of Anaplan and shared his expertise with the Community on the topics of Model Sparsity Principles & Center of Excellence Best Practices in a live virtual session. Take a look at his responses to questions on these popular topics.

Then, listen to our VP of Product, Sampath Gomatam, talk about the future of Anaplan in his inspiring Product Roadmap and Innovation video. Did you know he’s an award-winning plum winemaker?

Chris Weiss, a former Anaplan partner, shares his model building expertise and what it’s like to be an Anaplan partner in his Partner Perspective session.

And just this week, Duncan Pearson, Anaplan’s Chief Architect, shared his wisdom with the Community in the recently published videos on Designing for Performance and Scale. We also learned about his brush with fame; check out his bio to learn more.
