Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

Adaptive Insights is well-suited for accommodating different areas within the organization that have different cost drivers and/or have different allocation needs. The capability to design planning sheets using the lookup values offers flexibility that was difficult to produce with confidence in our other planning tool. Using dimensions and attributes within our organization's design, allows the ability to dissect data in different ways and report in more flexible formats to meet user needs. In addition, the OfficeConnect plug-in with Adaptive offers expanded Board reporting capabilities where Adaptive Reporting may come up short. The Discovery Dashboard provides quick visuals for C-Suite on demand.

Host Analytics

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

  • I love how easy it is to track software and general amortizations in Adaptive. The software has been an issue with my past employers, but it flows very easily here in Adaptive.
  • We also use Adaptive's OfficeConnect for easy reporting. It has helped us automate our reporting as we work with internal departments. We have the reports built, and the software and can refresh all of them simultaneously, reducing generation time and giving us more time for analysis.
  • We are building out more operational metrics now. We are starting to track sales opportunities across different business segments to see the correlation between spending activities and opportunity generation. This helps us set better targets in the future. This paired with OfficeConnect also makes it very easy to track and report on operational metrics in addition to financial metrics.

Host Analytics

  • The Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite does a great job keeping all of our actual, forecast, and budget data together in one place. Loading new data into the application is fairly straight forward and allows us to quickly provide reports and analyses to our senior leadership team each month/quarter.
  • The Host Analytics Excel-Add In Tool is helpful for users who are more familiar with building and creating reports in Excel. While the reporting module in the core application is very easy to use and navigate, often times our team will utilize the Excel add-in tool to build more complex reports using the data from Host as we tend to have more experience with Excel based reporting.
  • Using Host has allowed us to drastically reduce the number of days it takes to close each month. We quickly load data via the data load rule, use the consolidations module to input any top side journal entries, and from there we are able to jump right into financial reporting.

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • When trying to learn about a new feature or a feature I have not used previously it is sometimes difficult to find that information on the help section.
  • Adaptive can be deployed through consultants when they do not have specialized knowledge like higher education. This sometimes makes it difficult to determine who to contact when experiencing issues with the model after implementation.
  • You are limited to one master chart of accounts. When you have multiple businesses this can cause some difficulties that can be overcome, but takes additional thought and planning and can cause issues when making changes.
Brian Kyslinger | TrustRadius Reviewer

Host Analytics

  • Minor application quirks in the use functionality.
  • Updates are pushed to your application during specified maintenance windows, allowing for immediate use of the new functionality whether you were prepared or understood the changes or not. Any significant changes are clearly communicated ahead of time.

We are in our 5th year using HA and have renewed our contract already. We went through a major ERP conversion last fiscal year and at that time reevaluated whether or now we would stay with Host or move to another system. Host is meeting our needs for forecast/budget/report/etc and does so at a reasonable price so we saw no need to move to another system.

Menus are easy to navigate, sheets are straightforward and flexible and you can work on your budget/forecasts without being at the office. The cloud based system makes it easy for users to complete their processes offsite and without needing there work provided computer. Creating new reports using both the web based Adaptive tool and OfficeConnect is quite simple with very minimal training.

While there is still room for improvement (and I know they are working on it), I think Host Analytics is very user friendly, overall. Breaking the modules down, I give Reporting an A. It's very easy to learn, especially for those already familiar with Excel. The Budget model is a solid B as it takes a bit longer to learn.

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.

Be open to working up the plan in a way that leverages the power of the software.

Look to maximise the knowledge transfer early on - the software is very usable. You'll be able to maintain it yourself rather than being hooked to the partner

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

For us, it came down to Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics. The benefits seemed very comparable. We ultimately decided on Adaptive Insights because it cost less to implement and the time to implement was less compared to Host Analytics. We are VERY happy with our decision to go with Adaptive Insights.

The cloud based aspect of Host makes it easier for multiple team members to be in the system at one time and see changes in real time without a lag. in prior experience with Oracle there has been a lag in the system to view changes made my other team members

Return on Investment

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • We use Adaptive Planning as our main budgeting software. Adaptive is always releasing new features to improve the functionality, and this makes working it is much more efficient.
  • Adaptive has many resources to help you use Adaptive. However, not many answers can be found on Google.
Samantha Monastra | TrustRadius Reviewer

Host Analytics

  • Host has helped eliminate a lot of the issues we were experiencing with preparing our financial budgets in Excel. Ultimately, our department has become extremely efficient at producing master budgets and forecasts.
  • The reporting module has made it easier to produce ad hoc reports easily and efficiently. There have been several projects that would have taken a full day to complete before Host. With Host, these projects only took a couple hours to complete.
