Anaplan Practice Project: Restaurant Sales

Anaplan Practice Project

Learning a new technology, like any other skill, requires practice.  Murat Akkas, a Senior Business Solution Consultant here at Voiant, shares his Anaplan practice project using extracted SQL data from a pizza restaurant.
For this practice project, Murat copied a project that he had already done using other tools. He had completed this project previously withExcel, Python, Power BI, and Tableau. The aim was not to compare all of these tools but to practice Anaplan.

 Some menu items, such as pizza, have different size options including small, medium, larger, and giant. Also, some beverages are offered in different volumes. Thus, I needed a size list. Some menu items have a single size, like soup, fries; therefore “one size only” refers only to those that have a single size on the menu.
