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).

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

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

  • Model - It takes a little bit of time to get familiar with how the model works.
Denise Lewis profile photo
  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

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.

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.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

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

To be honest - Host Analytics seemed relatively similar to Adaptive. However, Adaptive was our number one choice because:- The Adaptive suite looked a lot better. It seemed smarter and "sharper" and the data visualisation was better.- The people from Adaptive throughout the selection process were more helpful and insightful. This was confirmed throughout the implementation where we had really excellent service and help from Adaptive.

Our shortlist included Tableau, a newer version of Microsoft's SSRS and Qlikview.

We also knew what Micro Strategies and Business Objects had to offer from our experiences with them at other companies, and knew what we could afford. We eliminated them on price and the complexity of set-up.

We liked QlikView's in memory, associative model, and self-service capability.

With "in-memory", everything that gets consumed from a dashboard is loaded in memory so it is incredibly fast. Although Qlik touts its mobile distribution capabilities, that was not a huge differentiator for us, but is something we are now exploring. Microsoft and and BO do have in-memory capabilities now.

The associative model is patented by QlikView. Basically it starts to understand the associations in your data, e.g. if A=B and B=C, then A=C. It means you can build a Qlikview model very quickly. In traditional data warehousing, you work with users and understand their requirements, refine the data model, start to physicalize it, tune it, build ETLs. It's a 3 month at best delivery cycle. That doesn’t work here at this company. Our business users will not wait for you. Our business is dynamic, we are launching new products all the time. Instead of going through an arduous process, you just load data into QlikView and build an associative model. It link things up. If it doesn’t work, you can change things very quickly. You don’t have to write data definitional language. Where you get into trouble, is if you load very large data sets into QlikView, memory not as abundant. They are releasing a tool called data explorer which allows you to do a hybrid approach – load some in memory and some in database. If data is going into frequently used dashboards it goes into memory. If infrequent access is required and the data set is very large, it makes sense to leave it in the database.

We also have a company called DataRoket that builds connectors for us, e.g. load this relational data into QlikView. They have built adapters for QlikView-Hadoop integration

Return on Investment

  • Adaptive provides for good forecasting based on revenue and expenditure.
  • The ability to pull different month-end reporting is a great feature.
  • The ability to share access across 11 offices statewide is very beneficial.
Jessalyn Ka profile photo
  • Speed to market is the really big thing. You can attach to multiple data sources quickly and build a consumable model for a dashboard. It doesn’t require IT talent to build. We have built more dashboards and added more users in the last year, then in our entire history. I was at a company of 30k+ employees before, and we didn't have near this level of BI adoption.
  • As a result, we are seeing benefits across business function. For example, within sales, our pipeline has much more visibility. It allows for much faster decisions on things like quotas. One of our biggest power users is in sales ops. She feels her dashboards load 10x faster than our previous tool and she can make changes on the fly.
