Adaptive Metadata Manager

Any team or organization with complex budgeting and financing could benefit from Adaptive Metadata Manager's ability to track, sort, organize, and analyze volumes of complex financial information. It's extremely valuable for our quarterly reforecasting exercises and lets us stay on track for our budgeting and accounting processes. As a budget manager, I get a detailed snapshot of my YTD expenses.

It's a perfectly functional software but isn't intuitive right out of the box. With some training, it's easy to use.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Metadata Manager

I haven't used any other similar products and am unfamiliar with any other options. Speaking generally, Adaptive Metadata Manager's user interface is occasionally buggy and doesn't always allow for smooth navigation. It's easy to get lost in the myriad reports and sheets on occasion.

Alation

Apache atlas, LinkedIn Datahub, Lyft Amundsen are some of the open-source tools we've explored before using Alation. Alation is way advanced over these tools and it has AI capabilities to help you write queries in an automated fashion. and learn more about the data in an easy way. It's very helpful in the data world.
