Likelihood to Recommend

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

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).

If you can use their provide Boomi integration, you may have a better experience because they say they'll have greater insight to data loads than we seem to have with our own Boomi integration. I also consider that we have had Host Analytics for several years and think we would benefit from a reimplementation (a somewhat common scenario with systems (or cars or girlfriends): "that system looks much more attractive, I'm ditching this... or maybe I should consider revisiting some basics")

Pros

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Infinite ability to group accounts and departments for reporting. The only limitation is the number of ways that you think of in terms of consolidating the information.
  • Being able to build scalable, complex, distributed, budget models. With the data we can bring into the system and the formulas we can use we have all the functionality of the spreadsheet, but with the flexibility to allow leaders across the organization to participate and update their section.
  • The platform allows multiple forecast/budget versions which allows for version control and sensitivity analysis. I can lock versions from changes while quickly creating a new version to see the impact of a +or- scenario to the company’s profitability.
  • With the OfficeConnect tool we can leverage Excel to provide repeatable reports for the board and other business leaders that are repeatable from month to month. While the platform provides more flexibility than an accounting package it still has limitations. Using OfficeConnect I can leverage the power of the Microsoft suite of Excel/Word/PowerPoint directly.

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • The format of reports when downloaded to Excel or PowerPoint could use improvement.
  • Would be nice if you could inactivate GL accounts when they are no longer being used.
  • Suppress rows functionality when set by the administrator to default to suppress if not data doesn't always seem to work.

Host Analytics

  • The speed of the application has sometimes been a bit slow, particularly at year end. We've found that when we use Host in Chrome as opposed to IE, our speed improves, however Host currently has limited functionality when used in Chrome.
  • We would love to see a more user-friendly report wizard in the future.

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.

Everyone is very responsive and is willing to jump on a call to help. We set up weekly calls with our CFL representative during the first month of Go-Live. This really helped us solve problems before they got out of hand. When using the Community, I also see representatives on there answering questions

Implementation

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company 8.2

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.

Be sure you understand all the language in the initial contract as to what is included and what is not. The BRDD document although more detailed and also a signed document is not a contract and Host will not necessarily honor that document.Be sure your solutions architect has been with Host awhile and done numerous other implementations. The better qualified they are the better your implementation will go.Do you own homework, and be ready with your own documentation on process, what your proposed dimensions are and fields with the data to populate them.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

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.

Host Analytics allowed for the finance and accounting department to own the process and implementation, which allowed for a quick and efficient implementation. The cost compared to other applications was in our acceptable range, and the ongoing customer support and service was seen as best in class for the EPM industry.

Return on Investment

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Adaptive provides for good forecasting based on revenue and expenditure.
  • The ability to pull different month-end reporting is a great feature.

Host Analytics

  • We've been able to grow the business and not add any additional finance/accounting staff.
  • We are now producing formal quarterly forecasts and have the ability to update the current forecast scenario in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks. This has allowed us more time to react to risks and opportunites
