Adaptive Insights is well suited for many business sizes, including small companies to companies with billions of dollars in revenue. Its flexibility with customization and the various options is very attractive.

Alteryx Analytics

It is great for dealing with mass quantities of data, not so good if you're trying to analyze. If you're dealing with 50k+ records, then it probably is considerably faster to deep-dive into the data with Alteryx. However, for anything under that, Excel is the better program for visually finding patterns and trends in data, at least for someone who has a limited tech background.

Pros

  • Adaptive handles the concept of "versions" very well. This makes budgeting, forecasting, and scenario planning particularly easy. You can compare actuals vs budget, vs budget @ different rate, vs forecast or vs prior year all at the quick click of a button.
  • Multi-user, multi-location, multi-currency handled with ease within the system.
  • Adding or removing GL codes, levels or dimensions is really easy and is updated across the entire model.
  • The reporting writing part of the solution is excellent. Once the data is in, you can report any parameter against any other.

  • Alteryx handles data imports very well and give great feedback on the import process.
  • Alteryx is incredibly feature rich. I never found myself unable to manipulate data in the way I had hoped.
  • Alteryx provides great formats for export as well.

Cons

  • For reforecasting (e.g. doing 3 + 9 or 6 + 6), it would be useful to do constant currency analysis for versions that are "hybrid" (i.e. contain actual and plan data). At the moment, the virtual version functionality only works properly for actual or plan only versions.
  • We are a company going through a process of changing financial years and trying to plan over multiple financial periods of different lengths. I have found it very difficult to handle this in the system elegantly.
  • It would be good if there were more "template" models for various common business scenarios (e.g. sets of standard modeled sheets available for personnel and fixed assets) or sets of standard cubes for revenue or projects.
Andy Clifton profile photo
  • You cannot as a novice just play around and get started. The learning curve is very steep, rewarding, but steep. I can't help but wonder if the product would not benefit from a "light" version for less data-mining accustomed business managers.

Likelihood to Renew

Our company is upgrading our SAP system this year and exploring one of the SAP reporting modules, but I don't think it will affect our renewal of Adaptive, especially since I know they are going to roll out an Office integration tool later this year.

Building complex reports is still difficult to do when using dimension or level attributes. Formulas are still a challenge.

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
In our experience the Adaptive Suite is quick and easy to deploy. Most implementations are facilitated in just a few weeks but may range depending on organisation complexity from say 2 to 12 weeks with only the very largest and most complex taking a little longer. When key stakeholders are properly engaged and the opportunities for skills transfer are exercised, we find that implementations proceed well and are delivered on time and to project budget

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.

Alternatives Considered

We did not go through a full-blown software selection process, nor have I used other products in the past. Previous to Adaptive, we used Management Reporter (formerly FRx, now part of Microsoft Dynamics GP) for our financial statements, and Excel for our budgeting. Adaptive is far superior to either of those.We pursued Adaptive mainly through word of mouth. When discussing the availability of products with other accounting professionals, it was clear Adaptive was becoming the industry leader for our company size. We had a demo of the product presented by them. Since we liked it so much, we decided to go with them even though we had not reviewed other products.

We tested this against several COTS packages and found Alteryx to be a more cost effective solution that could be deployed to a variety of user types

Return on Investment

  • Adaptive offers plenty of flexibility with what-if scenario modeling. It's very easy to save different versions of the plan/forecast and to control access rights to the versions. It's possible to hide versions from all users or to set them as read only.
  • Adaptive makes month end variance analysis very straightforward. Comparing actuals with budget/forecast is quite simple and efficient. It's easy to do a high-level comparison and then to do a deep dive where needed. Also, the budget managers can perform their own reviews simultaneously.
  • We've been using the software for 5 years and our budget/forecast cycles change all of the time. Adaptive offers the flexibility needed to create rolling forecasts that extend out several years. However, I wish that it was easier to roll forward historical results into future periods - there's a mix of actual/budget data that gets rolled forward and there's a lot of editing required to arrive at a baseline budget.

  • 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.
