@AaronW thank you for the warm welcome. Great to see this community space shedding light on different individuals.
What brought me here/ what do I bring in -
My brother works for a company which is a customer of Anaplan and one day he referred me to one of your YouTube demo videos. The first impression is very important and what Anaplan did in front of my eyes actually blew my mind. The tool in my view is very Agile and Adaptable.
I work in FP&A team of a University and throughout my journey from a student to an employee of the same university, it was disheartening to see and experience the rigidity of the processes and systems. That's when I decided to pick up my game of learning new tools which can 'Add value' to the existing and contribute to the improvements of what's coming...
As much as I am here for what I can get out of Anaplan and the community, I am also here to give something back as I progress through certifications. Also, I am open to connecting over LinkedIn.
What am I hoping to learn -
One thing I have observed via different model building tools is that there is theme of Continuous improvement. I am hoping to learn Anaplan inside-out and its best use under different circumstances.
Where am I from -
From the city of the land down under. Melbourne (Maybe not the best livable city in the world at the moment considering the pandemic & lockdown)
Hi, @yashlonkar, and glad to have you here. Thanks for sharing so much about the path you took; I also appreciate the community spirit you've shared! We definitely believe that our Community thrives because of folks who "give back," and we all make each other better because of it.
I am Andre in Sydney, Australia. I have been using Anaplan for two years and excited about the product. I am happy to help if you have any questions and believe that I could also learn something new in the process.
Hi, @andre.lie. It's always helpful to have varying degrees of expertise on hand; thanks for being willing to share. And I fully agree—there's always more we can learn, in almost any situation. Both humbling and exciting!
If you'd like, please introduce yourselves. Share a bit about why you've embarked on your learning journey, your progress so far, and where you're headed. We want to support and encourage you as you work toward your goals!
I have been into the Hyperion and SAP BPC implementations, now there is a request for Anaplan. So I'm very new to Anaplan and learning the Level1, its been going great so far. Thanks for providing the Anaplan trial version so quickly and for all the support.
