Likelihood to Recommend

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).

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

One of the main strengths of Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is its performance. If your business requirements include processing of huge volumes of data, then Informatica is strongly recommended over other tools. I would recommend Informatica over Talend.On the other hand, if your business primarily works on Apple machines, Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is a resounding NO. Running Informatica on a VM or a Remote Desktop completely kills its efficiency.

Pros

  • Financial Reporting - Building financial statements in OfficeConnect is a breeze! They are quick and easy to update on a monthly basis! The HTML reporting within Adaptive Insights is also particularly useful for department and adhoc reports!
  • Budgeting/Forecasting - Being able to budget/forecast within Adaptive Insights has significantly cut down on the time it takes to budget by utilizing formulas and assumptions within the model! We reforecast quarterly, and with Adaptive Insights, it's painless when compared to the Excel forecasting we did previously.
  • Cash Flow Statement - Creating this for the annual audit was painful before Adaptive Insights! Now, it's a simple export from Adaptive Insights.
  • Dashboards - The dashboards that can be created are endless and provide valuable insight for our executives in real-time!

  • Informatica is a complex, full-featured data integration tool. We use Informatica primarily to extract data from our ERP systems, transform, and load it into operational and dimensional data stores.

Cons

  • Model Sheets are complicated.
  • Some parts of the suite are not very intuitive, like formulas. It takes work.
  • It would be nice to have 2 Actuals versions. Just a thought.
W. Stephens profile photo
  • UI is a little ugly - looks like pictures of the tool from 10+ years ago.
  • Needs undo. Really, it doesn't have undo? Yes. Really.

Likelihood to Renew

Adaptive Insights8.6
Based on 32 answers
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.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

We had meetings with several industry leaders and Adaptive was our choice in the end. We liked IBM and also liked Host Analytics for different reasons. In the end it was the combination of cloud, Excel add-in, Office Connect, Discovery, and cost that would ultimately end up with Adaptive. I've used a few similar BI products and it has become my tool of preference. One of the best things about Adaptive is that they are committed to being the best, and to do that they must evolve and enhance the products different modules, I have seen many updates while using the product and I can say that they are making impressive enhancements on a regular basis. I'm very excited to see where they will be in another year.

Return on Investment

  • We [started with] one annual budget and 4 quarterly forecasts. After implementation, we are now a monthly forecast and rolling budget.
  • The business managers take ownership of the data. Prior to Adaptive, there were always excuses for why the data was incorrect or it was not their fault. Now they own their data and are held responsible for it. Managers now take ownership and the accuracy has improved dramatically.
  • The role of our FP&A team has gone from a supportive or IT role to a team member. The FP&A team now helps the business managers make informed and effective decisions and are not just the keeper of an Excel file.
Ed Behen profile photo
  • Informatica allows us to achieve complex data integration among our systems and into our data warehouse environment. Without this tool in place, hours of manual manipulation would occur to integrate this data and extract it into the appropriate DW solution.
