Likelihood to Recommend

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

I am unable to rate Adaptive Insights higher than 7 out of 10 because I have not fully explored the functionality. Based on what I know and what I have seen, I would definitely recommend Adaptive Insights. I would love if more people at my company used it, so then we could share content with each other. There is a lot of content for one person to explore.

The system is not always intuitive to a new user. However with some upfront training it is easy to catch on. A lot of the management is left in the hands of the users, in our company that would be finance. To us that is a great benefit, however, that may not work in all situations.

Pros

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • 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.

  • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
  • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Users need more visibility for external reporting. If this already exists, then I would suggest more training or webcasts that cover this topic.
  • On the sales side of things, I would suggest ensuring that your NEW users are aware of the amount of training involved in learning to be an ADMIN for Adaptive Insights. Users need to be able to move beyond the implementation to active use. Yes, Adaptive makes things easy, but only if you know how to write the formulas and set things up correctly to run in the background. Hands-on training is a must! Our implementation was 3 years ago, though, so maybe things have improved somewhat since then.
  • More problem/solution-specific forums for users to interact with each other and find new and better ways of handling unique issues. Since Adaptive is so flexible, it often takes bouncing ideas off others to figure out the best way to plan for certain types of revenue or expenses.

  • QA environments are understandably slow, but BOBJ's borders on driving me crazy
  • Users must be highly trained to maximize the tool's capabilities.

We just recently renewed our contract and I wouldn't hesitate to renew again. First, Adaptive as a company has a great customer-first attitude and they're great to work with. Their customer service team is fantastic. Second, they are constantly trying to improve the product and make it better, but not losing sight of what we really need. Also, the longer you use the product the more it is filled with priceless data all in one spot with instant access to report on and dig into.

It is already an integral part of our company's reporting and will be leveraged to create new growth sectors in the industry. I see it as a valuable tool for creating new services for our customers to increase billing and strengthen ROI.

I could train users to use the Business Warehouse within an hour or two. Also very easy to create reports and send web links to view the report. Exporting to Excel/Word/etc. was very simple and had good formatting.

Very long reports in SRC would take a long time to run (several minutes). However, shorter reports could be run quickly.

Support requests are always handled promptly and resolved favourably.Many user support requests arise during initial deployment and use and often represent questions relating to best methods or how to approach their particular situation, which we gladly assist with as we provide the appropriate skills transfer training and assistance.As clients become more knowledgeable in working with the product suite then they tend not to ask many questions.

This is more a function of the training I received from the systems experts in my organization, not training from Business Objects/SAP. The training was rushed, without an agenda, and didn’t meet my needs as a user.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

We previously only used Excel for budgeting and reporting. We now use Adaptive for all budgeting and use an add-on product called Office Connect to build reports that automate our data each month. We find the Office Connect reporting a little more user-friendly than the in-house reporting feature.

This tool is really the best option when undergoing an IT overhaul in switching to an SAP driven production system. There are many competitors but the overall suite of out-of-the box functionality is hard to pass up.

Return on Investment

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Once Adaptive was deployed we shorten our budget input cycle from about 1 month to 1 week for user inputs. Allowing more time to do meaningful analysis
  • With the use of office connect for BoD package reporting, I am able to quickly update a BoD deck. It usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour to change the settings in my standard reports and once this is done, if I make a change to the data in Adaptive, I can update the base reports and my PowerPoint slides are updated in a matter of seconds to minutes.
  • I estimated we save 1 to 2 FPA headcount because of Adaptive.
  • I have a 3 Year license agreement with Adaptive and because of this we receive multi year discounts.

  • Thus far the BI team has been playing catch-up since our SAP implementation, as a good many important customer facing reports were left out of the implementation as a requirement for go-live.
  • The scalability and SAP data conversion are the real value.
