We are excited to share we’ve added a direct connection to Anaplan from Tableau. The new connector is currently in beta.

Anaplan is a planning and performance management platform that combines a planning and modeling engine, predictive analytics, and cloud collaboration into one simple interface for business users. It enables teams to perform integrated business planning across various functions in real-time.

We here at Tableau use Anaplan as our go-to tool for sales planning and role-based headcount tracking. We’ve been testing out the new connector internally to our team members’ delight.

With direct integration to Tableau, people outside of our internal planning team can leverage our Anaplan connector and uncover actionable insights in real-time. People can zoom in on a slice of the data that impacts their work, or bring in additional data to expand their analysis.

Anyone can quickly analyze the budgetary impact of various model factors. Leaders can easily explore the headcount movement of various teams when making recruiting decisions. And sales teams can make informed decisions about territory coverage.

There are many more benefits to this integration beyond our own use cases. From marketing to IT, to supply-chain management, teams can benefit from an integrated view of the data when making decisions.

To start leveraging your Anaplan data, check out this quick video.

Sign up for our beta program and take our new connector for a spin. And do let us know what you think. We’ve been working closely with Anaplan over the last few months, and we’re excited to hear what you think about the fruits of our collaboration.


Hi Nick,

Thanks for the vid on connecting Anaplan to Tableau. I'm trying to get started and you mention that the connector documentation contains the URL that I need to stick into the connector to connect to my Anaplan model. Where is that documentation? I contacted Anaplan support and they do not have it.

Thanks on behalf of Anaplan :)
