It's exciting to hear that you are finding Anaplan to be so useful. Be sure to reach out here in the Group or in the main Forums if you have questions along the way.


Hi, guys - Jaya here, stays in TX. Totally a Non-IT background, got very impressed when I first saw the Anaplan DB at work and started independent learning. Completed my Level 1 Certification so far. Target is to become Anaplan Model Builder while job hunting.

Hi, Jaya! Congrats on completing Level 1. While you're on the hunt, but sure to check out the Available Talent directory and make sure you're listed when you're ready. Hope it's helpful to you!

Thank You Aaron. I am from India working as Lead Consultant in SAP Business Planning & Consolidation for 9 years. I came to know about Anaplan when my current client chose to stop BPC and move on Anaplan Tool. Since then, I got very curious to know more about this tool. I am doing my best to learn Anaplan Modelling as much as I can.


Also I would like share my view that Anaplan is really a very nice Planning & Budgeting tool and How am I telling so confidently, because as I mentioned, I have been working on SAP Planning tool i.e. BPC for 9 years. I could easily compare when I completed Level 1 and Level 2 Anaplan Model Building Certification.


I hope that I will get an opportunity, one day, to work on an Anaplan implementation for a client

Hi, folks - Rachel here. Primarily experienced in the data/ETL end of Anaplan, but I've been out of touch with the product for a few years due to being on non-Anaplan projects. I've always liked the tool and really love some of the changes since I regularly worked in it, so I'm trying to get (and stay) current for possible future client work while job hunting.


  • Where you are in the world - PNW, USA


  • What brought you to Anaplan Talent Builder - In addition to taking (and now retaking due to new UX) the certification tests, I'm working with a team of fellow Anaplan users I've worked with on past projects to do a mock project from start to finish to get us all refreshed on our basic skills plus learn incorporate the new UX. It's also helping us remember our general business team responsibilities and helping solidify our PLAN and DISCO comprehension.


  • One thing you want to learn and how this Group can help you get there - Ultimately I'd like to get my Architect level cert, but feel I need at least one or two more live real-world project as a dev to get there. I'm working on the certs as time permits (never enough). The forums have been helpful with hints when I get stuck.
