News update on financial planning for business


October 2015
Hi ,

Welcome to our October newsletter. I hope you had a good summer and managed to enjoy some of the fleeting sunshine that we had.

In this newsletter we focus upon Anaplan. With the annual Anaplan Hub event in London only days away we invite you to come to this event, free of charge, as a guest of Innovar. To understand how the Anaplan product is developing we have also included an article looking at the upcoming Anaplan release. Finally we have included an article which looks at planning ahead and in particular how far ahead you should be planning.
We hope you find this useful and would welcome any feedback you may have. If you enjoyed reading this then please feel free to share this with your colleagues 


Innovar is the expert planning company. We offer IBM Cognos Planning and TM1, BOARD and  Anaplan software and implementation services. We provide specialist budgeting and forecasting training and consultancy services and we help solve spreadsheet issues.

The Anaplan Hub events have become a focal point for businesses wanting to meet, learn and share their expertise.

Come and meet fellow Anaplanners and be inspired by their stories on how Anaplan cloud based modelling has completely changed how their organisation works across multiple functions from the executive to business users.

Anaplan upcoming release - new look and feel and a favourite new feature!

With both husband and daughter returning to school this month (one slightly more excited than the other...), and with the accompanying emphasis on new starts and moving onwards and upwards, it seems fitting that I was able to attend a webinar focusing on the new features set to be released by Anaplan in their fourth and final update for 2015.

However from a planning perspective it also made me realise the need to plan for alternative sources of fuel.
