Anaplan has opened an office in Singapore to launch its services in its strategy to reach key markets in the Asia Pacific and with the acquisition of its leading Asian reseller, Cloud EPM.
Anaplan is a provider of cloud-based solutions for businesses to model and plan for finance and operations.
According to the company, the new office in Singapore is part of Anaplan’s international expansion plan throughout the year to meet the growing market demands for its award-winning platform.
"Our customers in Asia Pacific are echoing what we have heard in the United States and Europe - these companies are hungry for an alternative to the status quo of enterprise planning and modelling. We are redefining this market on a global scale," said Anaplan CEO Fred Laluyaux.
Singapore was chosen to headquarter the Asia Pacific operations as it offers exceptional talent, unparalleled business and technology infrastructure, and an ideal location.
Samir Neji, a seasoned veteran in enterprise performance management, will lead the Asia Pacific operations.
Demonstrating its further commitment to the Asia Pacific region, Anaplan is discussing with Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) potential plans to build data centres in Singapore.
This would support IDA's goals to accelerate adoption of cloud-based technologies and economic leadership in Asia and enable Anaplan to better service its growing worldwide customer base.
Aside from Singapore, Anaplan has offices in North America, UK, France and Sweden.
