Adaptive Insights

It is very helpful for budgeting and reporting. I love how easy it is to automate reports and presentations. It can be more difficult to plan specific activities. It feels more high-level than activity-level. It shows totals rather than individual transactions (either past or future transactions).

Alteryx Analytics

Well suited: if an organization already has a lot of running ETLs or pipelines but need to systemize them, Alteryx is a good choice. It would be good to figure out how well Alteryx would be harmonized with the existing components, but in a general sense, it may be well harmonized. Less appropriate: Alteryx is good for "automation", but some data developers and analysts may prefer to remain and keep using SQL tools. One should be careful of not just adding "one more layer or tool" into the existing pipeline and make it more complicated to manage.

Pros

  • Web-based system which eliminates the need to purchase new software. System is accessible anywhere as long as there is internet access.
  • Its features provide for good planning, budgeting, and forecasting.
  • The ability to create customized reports is a very nice touch - we are able to share this across our organization.
Jessalyn Ka profile photo
  • User-friendly interface - the tool structure and general workspace are very easy to pick up on. Short learning curve from "no experience" to "beginner user".
  • Standardization - modules/wizards allow a single tool to generate results for multiple clients, all through the use of a few actions/inputs.
  • Analytics - wide range of statistical analytics tools makes it easy for a user to look at data and provide simple summary statistics, while also having the ability to build advanced regression models.
Cameron Tubbs profile photo

Cons

  • It would be great to have a "cheat sheet" for implementation purposes. We had a very strong resource since we used Adaptive's implementation team, but it would have been nice to better understand some of the implementation details upfront.
Brad MacDonald profile photo
  • Excel reporting - reports in PDF are fairly straightforward, but trying to output results in Excel can prove to be tricky/ugly.
  • Chart creation - current chart tool is very basic; needs to be a way to customize the look/feel of a chart more, as well as an easier way to incorporate "big" data that can be easily reported on/viewed.

Adaptive has demonstrated their commitment to creating, maintaining, and developing an outstanding product and they have demonstrated to me that they truly care what their customers need and want from the system. They want all users to be successful and this shows in the way they manage their clients and the way they develop the software. I will implement Adaptive at any future organization that I work with and I know several other Finance Directors who have done the same!

I use many programs and compared to others, Alteryx virtually never goes down, freezes up or gives an application error. Over a 4 year time period that I have used this program, any of these may have happened 3 times. It is an incredibly stable program that I feel completely confident in.

Implementation

Adaptive Insights8.2
Based on 13 answers
Although having a set of spreadsheet and workbooks helps to define the logic and processes, preparing a requirements document is also an important element in a successful implementation. In addition, dedicating a knowledgeable user as part of the "Scrum" development allows focus and permits the implementation to proceed without time loss and promotes knowledge transfer. Finally, having an onsite developer speeds the process and can reduce the overall cost as well.

There is really not much to it (the installation, that is). Once you get it installed, along with any of the add-ons (demographics, R, etc.), you are up and running almost immediately. There is really no additional setup. You can immediately begin blending data, running demographics, performing spatial queries, running predictive analysis, etc. And for many of these functions, the learning curve is quite easy.

Breadth of Deployment

It is used throughout the company in different divisions and at our corporate level. When used in a division recently the personnel from different departments directly inputted data and monitored their budget against actual. It is very user friendly and flexible.
Harry Vasels profile photo
Our company kept it contained in the marketing department. Other departments may not understand it.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive is much more flexible and powerful for our needs. It provides a wealth of reporting tools and capabilities that Cognos simply didn't or couldn't provide. The ability to have a team of one completely implement and manage the solution for a company is not unreasonable (as I'm currently doing this). Based on my previous experience, that would probably not be the case with other solutions.

Nice capabilities. Developing and publishing dashboards is very user friendly. After publishing permissions can be assigned based on hierarchy in a particular so you can control who can or who cannot view dashboards.Report distribution can be done very easily as dashboards can be downloaded in the pdf format. Alteryx Analytics' server is pretty secure for paid versions and has a lot of online help as well if you are learning server management.

Merging data is easiest among any platform I’ve used. The data sources available is broad and I understand Alteryx is constantly adding to the sources of data used by their customers. I particularly like the ability to schedule reports out of Alteryx. This makes it valuable as tool to do research and ad hoc analysis but also reduce the time spent actually running and delivering reports pre-built

Return on Investment

  • The main benefit for YBCA so far has been to reduce the amount of time the finance staff (and department directors) spend on the budgeting and forecasting process, and to reduce the number of errors (which were so easy to make in Excel!).
  • Getting our Department Directors more direct access to their financial information has allowed them to use more up-to-date financial information when making decisions. Having the department directors do quarterly forecasts in Adaptive has eliminated "surprises" that may have come at year-end and have shown them more clearly the need for mid-year course corrections.
  • In general, Department Directors feel that they are receiving better customer service from the Finance Team because they don't have to bother us with requests for their financial data any more.
Claire SunSpiral profile photo
  • Definitely, an increase in employee efficiency. With the right tools and hardware, Alteryx can reduce the processing time significantly.
  • Automation and/or automatic report scheduling frees up a lot of time that can be used elsewhere.
  • Licensing updates are somewhat not handled easily and quite often create issues with modules to run slowly and/or not being active.
