Anaplan corners the big data heavyweights

Armed with $100 million in fresh funding, San Francisco-based Anaplan has set its sights on Australia and reckons it has the technology to give the likes of Oracle and SAP a run for their money.

Cloud-based planning and collaboration platform Anaplan's chief executive Fred Laluyaux isn't a fan of the frothy epithets associated with his company. Anaplan has been touted as an "Excel killer" and toasted as a company that's about to make life difficult for the likes of Oracle, SAP and IBM in the enterprise performance management space, but Laluyaux is more circumspect.

"It's a credible possibility but we are focused on solving a very old problem (for businesses) that hasn't been addressed by big vendors," Laluyaux says.
