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.

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is not appropriate for real-time dashboards. It is fantastic for EOD or dashboards which need to be refreshed every 10-15 minutes. Qlik Sense makes a fantastic Data Warehouse, if that is what your ultimate goal is. If you have the resources, you can extend the out-of-the-box functionality to suit your needs. Unfortunately, if you do not have the resources, you may struggle with the back end of Qlik Sense.

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.

Qlik Sense

  • Running consistently without errors which gives users confidence in the system and its numbers
  • Easy to configure and customise to adopt to manyfold sources (facebook, google analytics, filemaker, SAGE, various Excel sheets)
  • Easy to navigate within the table and graphs (drill down, slice & dice, filter, sort) and easy to export results.
  • Geoanalytics is cool
  • Very customizable user and role based security

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.

Qlik Sense

  • Visualizations have sometimes worked slightly differently between releases requiring the need for some re-work when upgrading. Most of these have been appearance only but are still annoying.
  • Enterprise product should come with the ability to email common reports. People still want/need this but don't need all the functionality of the Nprinting product. Basic email functionality should not need to be a separate purchase. Perhaps give the basic functionality with the product to give people exposure to it would actually increase the take rate on Nprinting.

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.

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense, from a developer side, is way easier to pick up quickly while still holding the most functionality. Tableau is nice and has similar features to Qlik, but having to create each visualization/chart on its own sheet before building a dashboard is very much living 5 years ago. The ability to create master items in Qlik is parallel to this, but Qlik has the added feature of editing the charts/visualizations at the data level within the dashboard itself. I just finished a graduate program in Data Science, at the end of which we were all asked how we felt about Tableau. The overwhelming response was that, as you dig deeper into Tableau, you realize that it is not as easy and fun as it seems on the surface. With Qlik, I have had the opposite experience. The farther I dig into its full functionality, the more I find it to be useful at every level.

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.

Qlik Sense

  • Positive - we have been able to dramatically reduce customer churn rate with increased business visibility.
  • Positive - reduced reporting complexity by pushing/flagging employees for specific needs, thus reducing the need for best-guess reporting.
  • Positive - overall ROI has been more than measurable from a simple complexity reduction standpoint. No more creating custom reports on a monthly basis. Once a report or dashboard has been created, that report becomes a standard for us and can be easily modified for future use.
  • Positive - we've been able to reduce head-count for report generation.
