Pros: UI is like a spreadsheet for sure

Cons: requires a very knowledgeable anaplan partner to set up hte model on which the "spreadsheet" will run. without that you will be one frustruated user

Overall: the software is billed as "as easy to use as a spreadsheet", but it does require a good implementer to get you to where you need to be. So my recommendation is to focus on the partner who can configure / build the tool to fit yoiur needs

Anaplan is a game changer, but not without flaws

Pros: Product - it's adaptability...you can build almost anything you want with the platform. Simple replacements of existing excel models take only hours to replicate. Vendor - the constant upgrades to the system. 3-5 upgrades every year, and I have had a few of my personal requests added to the road map and eventually included in an upgrade, so they definitely listen to their customers on what to work on next.

Cons: Product - Metadata management. Within a single model it is great, but when you share the same metadata across models, it is really cumbersome to build the models to talk to each other constantly. Vendor - the pricing model is bad, they get you in the door with a small workspace that quickly runs out due to not accurately estimating the size you would need, and then charge thousands of dollars per GB of extra space to fit what you wanted to do in the first place.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't just let them demo, really get into the details of how it works. Each of their "demos" are setup in "perfect world" examples and really showcase the abilities of the product, but in almost every case there have been reasons we can't build something similar due to the way the demo was setup. Also make sure you are getting enough storage to do what you need to do, don't let them estimate size but have them show you a module with the appropriate dimensions built out and how big that module is.
