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).

If your business has plans that include aggressive growth
and aspires to be a best-in-class organization, your IT
systems and applications need to be up to the task.
Homegrown solutions created for a smaller business or
outdated commercial software can hamper your plans for
growth. If your IT infrastructure and maintenance costs
are affecting your ability to grow, then a cloud-based ERP
suite is well worth exploring.

Pros

  • Infinite ability to group accounts and departments for reporting. The only limitation is the number of ways that you think of in terms of consolidating the information.
  • Being able to build scalable, complex, distributed, budget models. With the data we can bring into the system and the formulas we can use we have all the functionality of the spreadsheet, but with the flexibility to allow leaders across the organization to participate and update their section.
  • The platform allows multiple forecast/budget versions which allows for version control and sensitivity analysis. I can lock versions from changes while quickly creating a new version to see the impact of a +or- scenario to the company’s profitability.
  • With the OfficeConnect tool we can leverage Excel to provide repeatable reports for the board and other business leaders that are repeatable from month to month. While the platform provides more flexibility than an accounting package it still has limitations. Using OfficeConnect I can leverage the power of the Microsoft suite of Excel/Word/PowerPoint directly.

  • It’s all in one solution for all major needs of business.
  • You can integrate all Oracle systems with each other, which gives you a perfect result, because the entire system is developed within a group.
  • Oracles EBS provides you integration with advanced technologies including Web Server, Java and Apache.
  • As compared to other ERP’s deployments, EBS implements at a lower cost.
  • It offers you customized reporting features with which you can create a dashboard as per business needs.

Cons

  • The in-house consultants who originally set up Adaptive were poor listeners - and as a result built a model that didn't work for my organization. I had to hire an outside consulting firm with more experience with nonprofits to redo my model. I lost about 1 year of usefulness as a result.
  • Mastering attributes for reporting takes time. The system can do many things, but not without lots of time and effort. I ended up hiring a consultant to build initial reports I needed. I'm comfortable enough now to edit and update, but still have some hesitancy building new reports. One difficulty I have is not knowing the impact a single change, such as the name of a field, can have on everything else associated with that named field or dimension or attribute. It would be nice to have a map showing the links between everything.

  • The functions EBS offers are not user friendly. Therefore, you might need a training in order to understand EBS features.
  • It only works on best practices of businesses. It's not possible to create your own process flow.
  • EBS provides you all the processes which have been in practicing in businesses globally.
  • The cost of system is higher. Go with EBS only if you are a Medium level or above enterprise.
  • Sometime it works slow, when you export the heavy files.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Suite gave us what we needed and fit our use case perfectly. We did short list Host Analytics and they were neck and neck with Adaptive and it was a win/win for us and we would have been successful with either tool. My familiarity with Adaptive, the simplicity of self implementation, the product vision,and the turn around time to get the company up and running made gave Adaptive the edge.

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.
