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.

IBM Analytics Engine

  • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
  • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

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.

  • It’s easy to integrate if you are already on IBM cloud, and even if you are not you can still explore the whole package with their free Lite plan and some service credits they offer.
  • Unlimited clusters without any performance degradation is a nice selling point. The smaller cluster size seems to work since it is only the computer, and not mixed with storage.
  • The connection to Watson Studio helps manage your jobs as you submit them to the cluster, and this is a nice easy relationship with Analytics Engine.

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.

  • I would like to see a more robust version of their online help
  • The speed of their business support is adequate, but I kind of expect more from such a powerhouse.
  • Problems with duration of cluster life

Usability

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.

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

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.
Denise Lewis profile photo

IBM Analytics Engine

We did an evaluation of Google Analytics and Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics in comparison to the IBM Analytics Engine product. We choose the product offering from IBM because we felt that for our company, this product offered a more complete and comprehensive package to satisfy our data analytics needs. We also appreciated that this product is coming from IBM, and we have a long-standing partnership with them and they have provided us with many valuable products and services over the years.

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.

  • Increasing learning success. My class and I were able to practice real tools
  • The only downsize is without the school, it would be unaffordable to use the tools
