The Tableau Anaplan native integration provides an easy way to see and understand your Anaplan data using Tableau. Using the Tableau Connector for Anaplan, you can directly connect to Anaplan in few easy steps.
The connector is native to Tableau and built using the Anaplan API. It enables you to import Anaplan data into Tableau’s in-memory query engine using export actions created and saved in Anaplan. With a direct connection to Anaplan, people within your organization can effectively work with Tableau and get actionable insights on their data. Users can publish their Anaplan extract as a data source to Tableau Online or Tableau Server and keep their data refreshed on a regular basis.
To start using the Tableau - Anaplan connector, you need to have an Anaplan account with workspace and model, and a license for Tableau Desktop. You will also need to configure the Export actions that you plan to use with Tableau in Anaplan. Tableau supports only extract connections for Anaplan, not live connections. You can update the data by refreshing the extract. To try the Tableau Connector for Anaplan visit https://www.tableau.com/products/trial.
