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.

If any client is seriously looking for a BI tool on Hadoop and doesn’t want to compromise with any technology barriers with Hadoop such as security, compressions, formats etc., I recommend platfora for them. If clients are not dealing with big data then I don't recommend this tool.It’s a great tool to do quantitative, time series analysis and data science.

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.

Workday Prism Analytics

  • It's web based. No need to install any desktop clients on your machine to use platfora.
  • It's best suited for a big data Hadoop environment. I can rate it as the #1 BI tool for a big data hadoop environment.
  • Platfora follows kind of the same architecture as Hadoop architecture like Master and Slave architecture. It scales with the data volumes.
  • Querying data is very good and very fast. (Platfora Lens)
  • Client presentation wise it's good. You can get different kinds of graphs.
  • Platfora almost supports everything on Big Data technologies including file formats, compression etc.
  • Security is not compromised and it can deal in parallel with any Hadoop distributor security implementations. Just take an example of Knox on Hortonworks, so it will deal with that and cloudera , MapR
  • Its very easily understandable and for the new people who wants to try platfora, learning curve is low
  • You can create your own datasets in platfora. You can store your results as a dataset in platfora and can share across

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.

Workday Prism Analytics

  • Data Movement - Data needs to be moved from Hadoop to Platfora to create Platfora Lens and to do analytics.
  • To support Data movement, infrastructure cost is high.
  • To support data movement, network bandwidth consumption is high.
  • No trial versions for companies to evaluate.

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.
