Hi Everyone,


My name is Shen, I am based on Los Angeles. Had the greast opportunity to work on Anaplan platform for 3 years now since my previous employer(Consumer products/Ecom) and current employer(Logistics and Supply Chain service). I got my master anaplaner certificate the first week when I started to work on building anaplan models. Have to say, get to know anaplan and learning the platform has been a great journey in my career. I can always come up with new ideas and better process to utilize the tool to solve real challenging problems!


Most of my user cases are in FPA/Financial consolidation and daily business planning/data intergaration.

Hope can get to know all other anaplaners here and continue to grow my knowledge base!


Nice to meet you all!

Hi Shen,

I'm Simon Chen working for DXC. I'm curious about how to get a Master Anaplaner certificate because I also want to get one, too. But the learning courses online only provide beginner and intermediate certificate. Master's is for anaplan employees and partners only.

Hi! My name is Jamie and I started using Anaplan since july 16 as a model builder (consulting). Not too long ago I moved to a SaaS company in the bay area (where I work and live) as a systems analyst for all our Anaplan finance user cases. we have very diverse Anaplan use cases adopted by different teams (controllership, FP&A and treasury) so I'm lucky to have the opportunity to learn many facets of business operations through Anaplan. 


Hope I'll connect with as many of Anaplanners and I'd like to learn the best practice, both technical and functional, such as, how at your company Anaplan is leveraged to maximize it's value? Also I'm working on my Master Anaplanner certificate and hope to meet anaplanners who have achieved/working on the certificate.

Hi Jamie! We have quite a few Master Anaplanners—and future Master Anaplanners like yourself—who have registered to attend, so you should definitely be able to connect with others about it! We'll see you tomorrow for the event. 🙂

Hello everyone! 


I am from Charlotte, NC and work in the FP&A group at American Tire Distributors.  We implemented Anaplan approx. 1 ½ years ago and to date have 6 active models and expect to launch #7 in a few weeks.  Every day is a learning experience for me.  I am excited to connect with other users to see how they are using the platform and learn more ways to optimize our models.

Hi Elyse!
