Anaplan’s cloud planning platform enables an organisation to run virtually any planning process by connecting data, people, and plans in every part of a business. Connected planning can be achieved at any scale - from a single use case within one business unit to enterprise-wide connected planning across hundreds of processes, and everything in between. 

Cornerstone Performance Management’s managing director Piers Wilson adds, “Our proven and practical delivery approach combined with Anaplan’s connected planning solutions makes this a truly value-added partnership.  

“The relationship with Anaplan will enable Cornerstone Performance Management to further capitalise on the growing interest for cloud-based planning and performance management across Australia while at the same time facilitate our team of consultants and integration specialists to optimise the delivery of these application to our customers.”
