OneCloud for Anaplan Quick Start

OneCloud has some very convenient features to help with the integration, automation, and management of your Anaplan environment. These features can be combined with a variety of touchpoints that OneCloud has with other technologies including Salesforce, Workday, Google Drive, Box, NetSuite, and relational databases.

This Anaplan-focused quick start guide will walk you through setting up OneCloud so that it is optimized to work with Anaplan. Not all sections need to be completed, but some do build off of work from completed prior sections.
