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).

Jedox

We've found Jedox's strength for us has been in our general ledger reporting and budgeting. We are starting to explore more areas where we can leverage the power of Jedox. Without a dedicated development team inhouse we have struggled to set up new reporting cubes, where some competing products are easier to do this with. Jedox is great for data that isn't needing to be "real time" in our experience. We haven't yet leveraged the prospective capabilities of Jedox. Most importantly maximising the use of the models that we have has been the standout as we haven't had to materially upskill the team to leverage the reporting capabilities of Jedox given the familiar spreadsheet interface.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • It can get cumbersome to have separate sheets for all prepaid expenses. The software works out very neatly - but creating a new sheet for each prepaid expense can be difficult. Because of this, I feel like forecasting is less based on actual plans, and more based on gut feelings, and trends rather than actual plans.
  • I wish OfficeConnect could pull individual lines rather than just aggregated data. The example that I'm trying to work on now is that I would like to pull personnel information from OfficeConnect (mainly pulling lists of employees, or open positions). I don't know how to do that currently. I can pull aggregated data and show totals - but I can't see the individual lines that make up that total within OfficeConnect.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
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.

To me Jedox deserves 10/10 because it is a consistent one-in-all platform with a modern look and feel. It is intuitive to use and allows you to make intuitive applications integrating traditional business intelligence with performance management functionality. It certainly has a short
learning curve, especially for those that are familiar with MS Excel. An example: I've lost count but Jedox it is available in more than 25 languages. Another: Jedox does not require programming skills... it is developed to be used by the business.

Jedox has
very few bugs. Reports are available through an Excel add-in, the web and/or
mobile device (IOS/Android). In my opinion, availability also means high
performance, not having to wait for the system to give you the required reports,
analysis, dashboards instantly.

Implementation

Jedox goed beyond traditional BI. That means that it is more important to pick an implementation partner that understands your business. A partner that can anticipate your next requirements. Using the performance management functionality of Jedox, integrating BI with forecasting, workflow, planning takes the solution closer to key (decision) making processes. People do not only use Jedox for insight, reporting, dashboards and analytics but to share expectations and comments to better drive the business. This kind of rich functionality requires a very good functional design before you implement it. That is, if you want to benefit fully what it has to offer. Technically implementing Jedox is relatively easy. In fact, according thousands of business users that participate in the yearly Business Application Research Centre (BARC) Survey, it is the best do-it-yourself BI/performance management system on the market

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.

Jedox can and is applied for a whole range of applications throughout the company or organization. Typically the number of users rises as the applications grow in size/ functionality and number

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive blows away Hyperion from an ease of use, functionality and performance standpoint. The reason we selected Adaptive initially was the flexibility of the tool (sheets), going from manual forecasts to a web based tool and being able to build assumptions into our budget and forecasting processes. Also, the cost of Adaptive licenses provided significant savings when compared to the annual fees that we paid Oracle for use and support of their system.
Gary Grzesiak profile photo
We normally compete with Cognos TM1, Hyperion and SAP BPC. Functionalities, price and implementation time have no comparison. Jedox is a large the leader in these areas.

Scalability is often another word for speed. Given enough data, enough users or enough calculations, the tool becomes slower and slower. You will find that Jedox has a very high performance that can even be increased by the use of grafical cards. Other thaen that it does not only offer BI (looking back based on historical ERP data) but also allows you to look forward through integrated budgetting, planning, forecasting, workflow and collaboration. Not easy to find a tool that can support so much business functionality. So, also pretty scalable in that respect.

Return on Investment

  • Month-end reporting: It's hard to say how much time Adaptive Insights has provided, but I can say we no longer have formula errors in Excel reports and refreshing financial statements every month only takes a couple of clicks.
  • Budgeting/forecasting: We have saved a tremendous amount of time in our budgeting cycle. After importing a budget in Adaptive Insights and setting up the model with formulas, we are able to copy the most recent budget version into the next budget version and review. Being able to budget in Adaptive Insights also removes the possibility of formula and linking errors that come with Excel.
