Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself

Hi All,

 

Wish and Hope you are fine and well.

 

I am Satya Prakash, from India. I am a VBA programmer with 10 years of experience and new learner of Anaplan.

 

I came know about Anaplan, through one my friend. I analyzed this technology and I feel that this is challenging technology and the technology of future. 

 

As this technology connects people, plans and data. I can forecast that this technology can contribute to make corruption free environment, if governments opt it.

 

Regards,

Satya Prakash

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself

@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)

 

My favorite vacation destination -

Anywhere countryside/ White sand Beaches

 

My favorite beverage -

Coconut Water    

 

My Hobbies -

Swimming, Uklele and Model Building

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself

Welcome, Sumon! I love your answers—I admit that traveling for me has largely become about what kind of foods I can try. 😁

Good luck with Level 1—be sure to post here if you get stuck, or check out the Academy forums
