Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

Adaptive is great if you want to create many what- if scenarios when budgeting and forecasting. Staffing scenarios has been particularly helpful for our HR department when analyze staff needs for future years and analyzing open and unfilled positions over a certain time frame.

Every so often Adaptive's response time when in the system has been slow but Adaptive has rolled out the Elastic Hypercube to take care of that issue.

QlikView

QlikView is well suited for QuickBooks uses -- particularly if you are running 2015 Enterprise or later. It's not perfect for those organizations that are trying to push data analytics down to the staff/user level ... I think it is still best suited for a knowledgable IT or SQL geek on the startup process. But if you can get a geek (like me) to design your reports, then any staff person can use the reports and even make simple updates (like sorting on a new date range, or selecting different filters).

Pros

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Allows assumptions to be created for fringes, taxes, capital etc. We are now able to push these type of expenses to individual departments as opposed to a single department. Gives us true costs for each department.
  • The flexibility in revising and creating new sheets allows our organization to modify our budget/forecast approach without much downtime. Also, we can make these modifications internally . No need to hire consultants to complete these tasks.
  • Adaptive Insights is an easy to use/understand tool for end-users. Our users typically struggle with new systems but the Adaptive roll-out was very smooth with very little end-user angst.

  • QV's #1 strength is the drag and drop visualization tools -- with just a bit of training, you can make some really nice looking charts
  • QV's #2 strength is the simplicity of the filtering. Other SQL languages might call this "linking" or database structure ... which can be a pain.... but QV makes this easy. Further, once the data is inside QV, the ability to FILTER the data using check boxes is completely intuitive and simple.
  • QV's #3 strength is its ability to work across platforms and integrate multiple data sources and multiple types of data. QuickBooks data is just one example of something that it can chew up with ease.

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Users need more visibility for external reporting. If this already exists, then I would suggest more training or webcasts that cover this topic.
  • On the sales side of things, I would suggest ensuring that your NEW users are aware of the amount of training involved in learning to be an ADMIN for Adaptive Insights. Users need to be able to move beyond the implementation to active use. Yes, Adaptive makes things easy, but only if you know how to write the formulas and set things up correctly to run in the background. Hands-on training is a must! Our implementation was 3 years ago, though, so maybe things have improved somewhat since then.
  • More problem/solution-specific forums for users to interact with each other and find new and better ways of handling unique issues. Since Adaptive is so flexible, it often takes bouncing ideas off others to figure out the best way to plan for certain types of revenue or expenses.

  • Licensing model could be easier to understand. It is not bad, but takes a while for the clients to understand it. QlikSense will have a greatly improved licensing model from what I hear.
  • QlikSense is covering for all the requested Qlik11 improvements. I think the 2 products will compliment each other.

At this point we have set up our reporting to integrate with Adaptive. We have spent some non-recurring money to set up and populate the system. Switching at this point would only be an option if we were unhappy with the decision. This might seem like I am side-stepping the issue but I think an important point is being made. Whatever system you decide to go with, changing later is costly and unproductive. We chose Adaptive and have absolutely no regrets. We are currently at a crossroads here at Teachscape and are looking at several different potential options. If we were still relying on a 20 to 40 sheet Excel workbook with thousands of links and formulas, I don't think I would be able to sleep at night. Adaptive gives me a greater level of comfort.

Fairly easy to get trained on the system and how to build models. Within 3 days of hands-on training, we build out robust capacity models on our own. Reports and dashboards are drag and drop to create.

Dashboards are easy to use. They are very Excel-like with HTML5 capabilities. Data visualization is good.

The system requires minimum training to get user up and running. It just takes one hour to get up and running with building basic dashboards and one all day session for sophisticated dashboard building. It is intuitive.

We see this in our user adoption. We went from 6 users/day consuming dashboards to over 200 in 1.5 years.

We have 40-50 power users authoring dashboards. They have development licenses. My team in IT used to have to build all dashboards. Our capacity has grown from 3 to 50. Most of these users are analyst types good in Excel. A few power users can write SQL to build QVD models

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

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.

It has taken some time to get used to Qlikview and the backend team behind it. From understanding the new regulations on using less images and also pushing for more tools (such as full compatibility on desktop, laptop, ipad, phone). We were given training on this and have helpful tips to find analytics behind Qlikview but it is very much also a learn as you implement system.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

I have used Hyperion and TM1 solutions in the past.
Hyperion was expensive and difficult to implement, requires more technical knowledge to set up the business rules for more more hands on IT support.
TM1 was a great tool for FP&A users. However TM1 lacked a report writer and was not a cloud based solution so access for international offices and those who traveled frequently had challenges. Adaptive offers a well-rounded solution cost effective solution with easy access, user friendly interface, built in report writer and dashboard capabilities.

Return on Investment

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Budget process has been shortened, while at the same time allowing greater detail. Visibility of prior activities across multiple years has provided greater understanding of the budget/forecast at the lower levels of the company.
  • Month End reporting cycles have been simplified and shortened. Reliability is increased as errors in data transfer between spreadsheets and/or files have been eliminated.
  • Weekly reporting to operating groups is now provided with significantly less resources in the accounting group. Accounting team members are able to concentrate more on accuracy in the accounting entries and less on data entry into reports.

QlikView

  • QlikView development time is 1/10 that of SAP development. The benefit of better information is huge, but IT savings alone are enough to justify the ROI.
