At the beginning of participating in the Anaplan certification up to Level 3 Model Builder, Saurama Dimas Maulana followed every stage, starting from Level 1 Model Builder.
At Level 1, he learns the basics of Anaplan starting from the basic modules and the basic material for the features in Anaplan. After Level 1 is finished, he proceeds to Level 2 Model Builder. Level 2 is already starting to be difficult because it starts to make reporting formulas from scratch. "At level 1 we have provided a template and we just need to complete it," said Dimas.
For Level 3 Model Builder, this is specifically for vendors because at level 3 we are given a case like we are working on a project on a client. “In this Model Builder Level 3 certification, we are given a mini project and its documents. Here we are like working on a project in a company complete with documentation of problems from the company,” said Dimas.
In Level 3 Model Builder, we analyze what the company's needs are through the cases given in a story. "So here we are like meeting with clients who need reports for their companies and all of that is based on stories," said Dimas.
For the level of difficulty, Level 3 Model Builder feels more difficult than the previous level. In Level 3, based on Dimas, are required to know the business process of the company that is the case we are working on.
From this certification, Dimas admitted that it was very helpful in its implementation to work. One of them is how Dimas can understand the client's wishes. "Like during user stories, we can ask the points that clients need when we are working on a project," said Dimas.
In addition, Dimas also added that from this certification he also knows his best practice in building Anaplan according to the methodology in the Anaplan Way.
Dimas said that he hoped to be able to share the knowledge he gained with colleagues in the Anaplan ED-SEN Consulting project team. "I want to share the knowledge I got from this certification for friends who are new to the ED-SEN Consulting project team so that the team can run with the same knowledge," Dimas said.
The Anaplan certification program itself is a program from ED-SEN Consulting as the official partner of Anaplan in Indonesia. In this program, the Anaplan project team is required to take the certification to have in-depth knowledge of Anaplan. This certification also helps facilitate the performance of the team that implements Anaplan on the client. In addition, so that the certified Anaplan project team has the feasibility to implement Anaplan in companies that are clients of ED-SEN Consulting.
