Market Leading EPM Advice and Implementation
Fidenda has over two decades of experience in delivering EPM solutions to large and small organisations alike. We know how to set up EPM initiatives for success and bring this experience to bear for our customers. Our advisory services are mainly EPM vendor agnostic, but at Fidenda we have particular technical experience in Anaplan and SAP EPM (SAP BPC, SAP BW-IP).
Often organisations know they need to improve their performance management business processes but don’t know how to start. Fidenda can facilitate this by assessing current business processes, technology and organisational factors against leading practice. We guide our customers through the options available to improve maturity and facilitate the definition of more detailed requirements. Finally, we advise on what roadmap and project plans to adopt to achieve the desired end state and how best to get the project started, as well as how your organisation needs to adapt to the changed processes and technology
Using our Fun, Early, Many methodology we work as a single team with our customers to deliver world-class EPM solutions on time and to budget.
Some organisations have already embarked on an EPM programme and need independent expert to ensure success. This can range from a one-off review of requirements and design specifications, through to ongoing presence of technical experts and project managers. Our approach is to work on behalf of the customer, work constructively with the customer’s implementation partner, focusing on minimising project risk, whilst maximising quality and time to value.
Anaplan is the market leading cloud-based planning and performance management platform and we are proud to be recognised as an Anaplan Partner. We help our customers throughout the whole journey – from selecting Anaplan as your EPM tool, through to implementation and support.
As an Anaplan reseller, Fidenda can support you throughout the process of selecting and purchasing Anaplan. We believe our role here is to inform you in making your choice by taking time to listen to your business challenges and what you’re looking to achieve – we then fill in your missing gaps with information about the product, demonstrations and proofs of concept.
PRECONFIGURED ANAPLAN TEMPLATES
Fidenda have developed a number of pre-configured Anaplan templates providing solutions specific to different industries and lines of business. This enables us to deliver best-practice processes to our customers and decrease time to value. We are also able to advise on and implement the large range of Anaplan standard line of business templates.
Fidenda can assist you throughout the whole project lifecycle, starting with our Advisory services to get the project properly defined, through to technical implementation of an Anaplan solution. Our Fun, Early, Many methodology is flexible and tailored both to customers who want to implement Anaplan themselves with some guidance, as well as those customers who would like us to perform the full technical implementation.
Anaplan has a low TCO - Infrastructure and Product support are provided by Anaplan, and applications built in Anaplan can typically be managed by small in-house teams. We provide flexible, tailored support to customers to bolster their in-house capability when the need arises or when there are business reasons for outsourcing support.
ANAPLAN DATA INTEGRATION
As organisations’ use of Anaplan grows, it is often necessary to streamline the process of bringing data in and out of the Anaplan solution. Fidenda can help you determine the correct strategy for data integration and implement it. We have deep knowledge, in particular, of SAP ERP, SAP BW and SAP CRM and how to integrate to Anaplan most effectively.
Many organisations start by using Anaplan for a particular solution in one part of the business and it’s a great cost-effective, agile tool for doing so. The power of Anaplan grows exponentially as more parts of the business adapt Anaplan and those models are joined up – this is known as Connected Planning and should be an important part of any organisation’s Digital Transformation strategy. Fidenda can help existing Anaplan users define a roadmap to achieving the benefits of Connected Planning.
