Best wishes for much success. I too am new to Anaplan. I am recently retired from a public school running the business office. Anaplan is a great tool and I can see how helpful it can be.

Hello Aaron, everybody!

 

Nice to meet you, I am an Agile practitioner ( Scaled Agile Program Manager/ Coach), Tools consultant, and an Automation enthusiast .

 

  • What brought you here- It all started with a tiny investment that leads to owning a few fingersful of Anaplan shares a few months ago, the curiosity to learn your platform gained traction with the recent Q2 results which came in following full guidance for the year and all top right ratings from Gartner, Forrester, IDC, and NUCLEUS.
  • What you hope to learn- Learn modeling- How to optimize and be efficient in making pizzas like explained by Arun Manickam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUV_AZCRGMQ 
  • Where you are in the world- Iowa state, south of MSP, a four-hour road trip!
  • Favorite vacation destination- My home town Chennai in Tamilnadu, India, and our beaches!
  • Favorite beverage- Lavazza is a good coffee and Stella Artois is a good beer.

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone! 

Excited to be part of this group 😊

What brought me here:

After 3 years working with finance in Dublin (Ireland) I was keen on a change and decided to move back to Norway (where I'm from) May last year. I had previously read about Anaplan and found it very interesting. By coincidence I came across a job posting for a position with a consultancy firm called Bluesprint, which are 100% dedicated to Anaplan in the Nordics. Long story short, I got the job, and I am now a proud “Bluesprinter” striving to become a planning specialist. I have now worked with Anaplan for about a year, and I am currently working on 2 Anaplan projects in Oslo. I have also completed level 1 and level 2, and started the level 3. 


What am I hoping to learn:

I want to learn how to utilize the platforms potential, get inspiration related to how Anaplan can be used in various use cases, and hopefully I’ll pick up some tips and tricks that will enhance my model builder skills.  


Where am I from:

Orginally from Arendal, Norway. A beautiful town along the coast in the southeast. Currently based in Oslo, Norway.


My favorite vacation destination:

Cape Town, South Africa!


My favorite beverage:

An ice cold Arendals Pilsner..     


My Hobbies:

Ultra running, cycling and salmon fishing 🎣

Cheers 😊
