Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

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).

SAP HANA

SAP HANA is well suited when performance is essential to the business process. HANA Live can replace the need for an external BI solution if the data comes from the ECC system (not external sources). The integration of AI frameworks, as well as the AFL, can provide a competitive advantage. Coding extension on HANA XSA is a perfect alternative for non-ABAP developers to swiftly provide solutions without the baggage that comes with the ABAP stack. For us, HANA seems less suited for unstructured data. We had to move all our GOS attachments from our legacy SQL server to a content server before we migrated to SAP HANA.

Pros

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • 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.

SAP HANA

  • HANA has allowed us to convert our BW reports and provide users with real time report data. Prior to moving to HANA, the reporting was based on prior day activities.
  • Queries involving large amount of financial data are able to be run much quicker with HANA than prior to implementation.

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • The format of reports when downloaded to Excel or PowerPoint could use improvement.
  • Would be nice if you could inactivate GL accounts when they are no longer being used.
  • Suppress rows functionality when set by the administrator to default to suppress if not data doesn't always seem to work.

SAP HANA

  • It would be good if we could virtualize all DBs even in production.
  • Hana dynamic tiering is not yet officially released with HA/DR. Furthermore, it sounds like not many companies have a great amount of experience with it, therefore I'm wondering if it is reliable.

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

The Adaptive Suite is well-rounded. We love the add-on OfficeConnect because it allows us to quickly pull data from Adaptive in a report format. Once you set up the OfficeConnect, it's as easy as pushing a button to re-run. This has been especially helpful for month-end reporting and reconciling data in the Budget.

The support portal is fairly easy to navigate and always available. Sometimes I can find what I need by just reading the documentation or SAP community blog posts. If I have to open a ticket I have always had good quality service and the issue was eventually resolved. The support could be improved by providing faster responses.

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.

SAP HANA

The first thing that is used to select between SAP HANA and S4HANA is the database that the client wants to use, this is one of the critical points. Also, the audit requirements are some other points to choose the correct option. Finally, the client needs to play a good role in that decision and how the change will impact the business (IT vs Business).

Return on Investment

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Our budgeting and forecasting cycles are now faster, more accurate and can evolve dynamically throughout the process. This is especially important in our business which is experiencing rapid growth.
  • Our ability to push out bespoke reporting to business owners has massively improved.
  • For our most recent budget cycle, we were able to simply and quickly illustrate the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations to our board.

SAP HANA

  • Data Analysts are able to complete their analysis much faster (4 hours vs 4 - 5 days)
  • Resource intensive summarization processes could be decommissioned as the data can be stored at the lowest grain. This saves on resource/licensing costs and gives the business near real-time access to their data.
