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.

Oracle EPM Cloud

It is well suited in a geographically distributed environment where you have various key participants in multiple time zones providing input and necessary explanations on performance and measured successIt is less appropriate where you have a single office environment with a single finance department working together.It is also less suited when the GL is NOT an Oracle product and the interface between the GL and the reporting software needs to be implemented with utmost care and handling.

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.

Oracle EPM Cloud

  • Account Reconciliation CLoud Services provides tight integration with Oracle R12 and 11i . Provides drillback capability. It is flexible and provides rich functionality to users.
  • We have implemented ARCS on cloud and migrated planning and budgeting from On premise to PBCS and EPBCS. Functionality is onpar with onpremise. Provides regular updates monthly
  • We don't need to upgrades every year and saved a lot on Hardware.
Raju Aenike | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Oracle EPM Cloud

  • The limitation of constrained out of the box dimensions that requires ripping the initial implementation to add the new dimensions is a major drawback.
  • Smartview interface is cumbersome for many.
  • The only financial adapter is available for integration for other modules we have to go with file-based uploads which is cumbersome and not real-time.
  • It is very costly in terms of licensing unlike other Oracle products.

We have a pretty good userbase who are at the high level who gained value from this tool. Discontinuing this tool is prone to impact their day to day operations. Also the data in this tool cannot alter the source, which maintains the integrity of this tool. Smartview is a cool addition that gained lot of traction as well.

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.

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.

Support from our implementation partner is a 10/10, but support from Oracle is awful. Case in point: recently over a 2-day period, there were a series of intermittent outages. Oracle actually asked US for the outage time-stamps. I would have thought that, since we were paying them, they should probably be able to tell us!

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

I suggest doubling the time to implement from the initial quote you get from the Sales team. That's always been the case for me for multiple EPMs now. The out-of-the-box functionality of Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud is pretty robust so I appreciate that and it really helped us get the ball rolling quickly.

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 | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle EPM Cloud

We used to use Prophix before we switched over to Oracle EPM Cloud. In general, Oracle EPM Cloud and Prophix have similar feature offerings, but Oracle EPM takes advantage of the current major leading technologies. We chose EPM Cloud since we needed to access the Cloud through a web-based client. However, I would say that Prophix out performs Oracle EPM Cloud in terms of it's customer support service and abundance of integrations

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.

Oracle EPM Cloud

  • Our users currently finds the product cumbersome to use and don't like the UI & webforms
  • eliminated the need to manual consolidate excel templates, thereby reducing risk.
  • Smartview allows FPA team to pull data out of the system very easily & perform their own analyses
