I've learned that Anaplan teams can sit in a variety of departments: some sit on Technology or Operations teams, some sit in Finance. There's a variety of roles that are filled by a small number of people wearing many hats, or sometimes a large number of people wearing fewer hats. I enjoy learning about the different team structures, as it is fodder for creating more deliberately planned responsibilities within the Anaplan team.
My Anaplan team is part of an Anaplan Partner arrangement, so we interact with all department and our specialty is the retail industry.
Anaplan team is made up of 8 people. 6 are certified modelers, 1 master anaplanner/solution architect, and 1 about to be certified. We had a legacy Solution Architect but he has opted to waive the new L3 for now.
My Anaplan team currently sits in Corporate Financial Planning. We oversee the financial projection processes across our entire company.
We are a small team, 1 dedicated model builder and myself as CoE lead. We get some support for our IT organization for any integration heavy lifting (APIs between our corporate systems) but we pretty much handle everything else.
