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).

Jedox

Jedox is really good when being applied to a specific use case or scenario (such as a budget or planning process). Once embedded, users then start to really understand how it can be used in other, less well defined, areas of their business.It is therefore not as easy to apply it on an enterprise-wide deployment from a "Big Bang" perspective. But very few tools / projects ever meet this goal.

Pros

  • Adaptive Insights has so many good resources and easy filtering capabilities with active searching. When you go to a section of Adaptive Insights, you will see filters at the top of the page. As you change them, the contents of the page change to suit what you're looking for. This makes it easy to find the resources you need!
  • As previously mentioned, the FP&A Glossary is a great feature due to its concise definition of many common terms in FP&A.
  • I have not had much experience with the eBooks section of Adaptive Insights, but there are is a wide variety of topics to explore, such as rolling forecasts, and best practices for controllers.

  • By now everybody has business intelligence, a logical starting point. However, traditional BI tools do not allow for write back functionality. Sharing expectations among each other in terms of budgets, forecasts, planning and associated comments including workflow and audit trail is not facilitated in BI tools. Jedox offers both BI functionality and such performance management functionality in one integrated platform.
  • It is easy. For many reasons. At the end of the day the proof of the pudding is in the eating. After an initial implementation and some training many of our Jedox customers have started to build their own BI and EPM applications. Be it reporting, dashboards or more complicated applications like cost allocations. Of course one has to keep in mind that this is all relative. Some solutions require a very high technical and business know-how & experience but compared to other tools Jedox is definitely easy.
  • It is fast. To implement but also in terms of (query) performance.
  • Quality/ price ratio is excellent.
Steven Koelemeijer profile photo

Cons

  • There is always room for improvement with speed. Many users are used to Excel which has instant results when you change a formula. Although it is just a couple seconds to refresh, this can deter some users.
  • Having a feature to highlight a cell in a cube or modeled sheet would be helpful. People use this all the time in Excel to draw attention to a particular data point.
Justin Wade profile photo
  • Jedox has made an important step toward corporate disclosure management functionality but this could be improved/ extended.
  • In terms of visualization Jedox is up there with most well-known BI vendors. However, Jedox lacks the visualization data discovery features that some of these tools offer. Having said that, an analyst will not regard it as a showstopper.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
There is a learning curve to using Adaptive but it is easily overcome with regular use. Once a user is comfortable with the tool it is easy to navigate and faster than moving between and maintaining multiple files as was required before Adaptive was implemented.

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

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.

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

I was not involved in the selection process, but have interfaced with TM1 to our parent company. My personal experience has found Adaptive to have greater responsiveness.

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

  • Streamlined financial reporting is the obvious one but also we are happy with the products ability to keep up with our use. We are growing rapidly and adding business units and we are able to easily add to our org structure and not be slowed down by arduous remapping of Excel files, and the maintenance that goes along with it.
  • KPIs and dashboarding. This has always been high priority at my company but it was always Excel based. Now we use Adaptive and the metrics are more readily available and the ability to display them in dashboards will continue to evolve.
  • Long term financial modeling and improved modelling of HC and attrition. We are now able to sit down with functional leaders and determine the impact of attrition during a short meeting, something that used to take for longer.
  • Multi Version instance that allows for what-if-scenario's. We are also able to create groups, which in turn are given access to specific versions, so we can plan for attrition or we can plan for acquisitions and not be concerned with the security and also not be concerned with modifying or changing a forecast by accident.
